Local biotech, academics eyeing $5.5 billion stem cell measure

As California ’s stem cell research agency prepares to seek another $5.5 billion from taxpayers, local biotech researchers and companies are keeping a close eye on where those dollars go.  The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine was founded in 2004 after voters approved a $3 billion bond issue to f und stem cell research and commercialization across the state. As the agency’s funding is expected to run out this year, backers have proposed a measure for another $5.5 billion bond that…

Publication date: 15 February 2020Source: Materials Letters, Volume 261Author(s): Pengfei Ren, Faming Wang, Tiantian Zhan, Wanjun Hu, Naizhen Zhou, Tianzhu Zhang, Jinhai YeAbstractNano-hydroxyapatite/chitosan/poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) (NHA/CS/P(MVE-alt-MA)) composite was formed through electrostatic interaction. The results of characterization indicated that the nano-hydroxyapatite (NHA) in the composites was uniformly distributed in the polymer matrices (chitosan/poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) (CS/P(MVE-alt-MA)). With the increase of NHA content, the porosity and strength of the composit...

In this study, we elucidated kinetics on aggregate behaviors of two types of hiPSCs (253G1 and 201B7 lines) to clarify the influence of aggregate behaviors on cell growth by comparing aggregate morphology, size of cell aggregates, and kinetic parameters in 72 h culture under static and floating conditions, which were realized by multi-dimple plate and rotating wall vessel, respectively. In the case of 253G1 line under floating condition, aggregate number decreased and size increased drastically during culture time, t = 0–24 h due to coalescence between cell aggregates. The apparent specific growth rate...
