Skin Cells Reprogrammed to Mimic Rare Disease
Johns Hopkins stem cell biologists have found a way to reprogram a patient's skin cells into cells that mimic and display many biological features of a rare genetic disorder called familial dysautonomia.

Hummingbirds want the sweet stuff. And when they dona t get it, they look mad.
Hummingbirds are speedy feeders, with their tongues darting 17 times a second, but they are also fussy eaters, researchers observed.
Biologists reprogram skin cells to mimic rare disease
Neural crest cells were made from reprogrammed adult skin cells. A single neural crest cell divided many times and these cells were coaxed to become four different types of adult cells, as shown by the presence of cell-specific proteins .
Scientists discover predictive marker to classify breast cancer patients for effective treatment
A predictive marker discovered by scientists at A*STAR and NUS could help doctors classify breast cancer patients for more effective treatment Scientists have made it easier to predict both breast cancer relapses and responses to chemotherapy , through the identification of a unique gene .
A new role of Klumpfuss in establishing cell fate during the GMC asymmetric cell division

Proliferation of aneuploid human cells is limited by a p53-dependent mechanism.
The Journal of cell biology , Vol. 188, No. 3. , pp. 369-381, doi:10.1083/jcb.200905057 Most solid tumors are aneuploid, and it has been proposed that aneuploidy is the consequence of an elevated rate of chromosome missegregation in a process called chromosomal instability .
