Glutamine Metabolism Regulates the Pluripotency Transcription Factor OCT4
(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-07-12)
The molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of pluripotency by cellular metabolism in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are not fully understood. We found that high levels of glutamine metabolism are essential to ...
Bioenergetic shifts during transitions between stem cell states
(Pulmonary Circulation, 2014-09-01)
Two defining characteristics of stem cells are their multilineage differentiation potential (multipotency or pluripotency) and their capacity for self-renewal. Growth factors are well-established regulators of stem cell ...
Builders and Blocks: Engineering Blood Vessels with Stem Cells
Back in 2001, when we first began studying how regenerative cells (stem cells or more mature progenitor cells) enhance blood vessel growth, our group as well as many of our colleagues focused on one specific type of blood ...
