A fruitful liaison of ZSCAN10 and ROS on the road to rejuvenation

Nature Cell Biology 19, 1012 (2017). doi:10.1038/ncb3602 Authors: Clea Bárcena &Carlos López-Otín Induced pluripotent stem cells derived from aged donors (A-iPSCs) usually show genomic instability that affects their utility and raises concerns about their safety. Now, a study highlights the importance of ZSCAN10-dependent recovery of glutathione–ROS homeostasis in counteracting the genomic defects in A-iPSCs.

Abstract ObjectivesThe use of doxorubicin, an antineoplastic medication used for the treatment of cancers via mechanisms that prevent replication of cells or lead to their death, can result in damage to healthy cells as well as malignant. Among the affected cells are mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which are involved in the maintenance and repair of tissues in the body. This review explores the mechanisms of biological effects and damage attributed to doxorubicin on MSCs. The PubMed database was used as a source of literature for this review. Key findingsDoxorubicin has the potential to lead to significant and irreversible ...

In this study, to discover the effects of iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies on the hematopoietic stem cells, we studied CFU assay from peripheral blood. One hundred and two children were included in our study and were evaluated in five categories: iron deficiency, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency, iron and vitamin B12 deficiency, and controls. As a result of statistical analysis, no significant difference was detected between five groups in terms of CFU assays. The results of our study suggest that, in emergent situations, stem cell samples can be collected before treatment with B12 or iron which are common d...

This study revealed that the SALL4 ‐ KHDRBS3 network augments stemness through modulation of CD44 splicing in basal‐like breast cancer. This network enhances anoikis resistance for stemness. This study may contribute to the establishment of therapies targeting cancer stemness.

Abstract While nanoparticles are an increasingly popular choice for labeling and tracking stem cells in biomedical applications such as cell therapy, their intracellular fate and subsequent effect on stem cell differentiation remain elusive. To establish an effective stem cell labeling strategy, the intracellular nanocrystal concentration should be minimized to avoid adverse effects, without compromising the intensity and persistence of the signal necessary for long‐term tracking. Here, the use of second‐harmonic generating barium titanate nanocrystals is reported, whose achievable brightness allows for high contrast s...

AbstractEpendymomas (EPN) show site specific genetic alterations and a recent DNA methylation profiling study identified nine molecular subgroups.C11orf95-RELA andYAP1 fusions characterise the RELA and YAP1 molecular subgroups, respectively, of supratentorial (ST)-EPNs. Current guidelines recommend molecular subgrouping over histological grade for accurate prognostication. Clinicopathological features of ST-EPNs in correlation withC11orf95-RELA andYAP1 fusions have been assessed in only few studies. We aimed to study these fusions in EPNs, and identify diagnostic and prognostic markers. qRT-PCR and Sanger Sequencing for th...

This article reports attrition, compliance, adherence, and progression from the strength training arm of the single-blind randomized, controlled trial Strength Training to Enhance Early Recovery (STEER). 
. METHODS: 37 patients were randomized to the intervention and participated in a structured strength training program introduced during hospitalization and continued for six weeks after release. Research staff and patients maintained exercise logs to document compliance, adherence, and progression. 
. FINDINGS: No patients left the study because of burden. Patients were compliant with completion of exercise ...

Authors: Effendi-Ys R Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most frequent cancer in males, the second in females, and is the second leading cause of cancer related death worldwide. Within Indonesia's 250 million population, the incidence rates for CRC per 100,000 population were 15.2 for males and 10.2 for females, and estimated 63,500 cases per year.  More than 50% of colorectal cancer patients will develop metastasis. CRC is still the main cause of tumor-related death, and although most CRC patients are treated with surgery to remove the tumor tissue, some of the CRC patients recurred. Chemotherapy u...

In conclusion, death is a natural part of human existence, but human progress is essentially a story of overcoming undesirable natural limits. In the near future, technological progress might make it possible to stop natural biological death. Should humankind embrace such technology? Yes: Even though such technology would not be without risks, the risks are almost certainly manageable. The benefits of ending natural death, on the other hand, are immense. Death is an obstacle that is slowing down human progress. If we remove that obstacle, humankind could increase the speed of both its moral and its epistemic progress. ...
