Mechanical conditioning and the vascular remodeling potential of small intestine submucosa based grafts
According to the American Heart Association, over seven million cardiovascular operations were performed in 2009. The development of arterial substitutes has been shown to be one promising treatment of vascular disease. ...
Scalable cultivation of human pluripotent stem cells on chemically-defined surfaces
Human stem cells (SCs) are classified as self-renewing cells possessing great ability in therapeutic applications due of their ability to differentiate along any major cell lineage in the human body. Despite their restorative ...
Glycan Signature Changes in Stem Cell Differentiation and Cancer
Glycosyltransferase (glycoT) enzymes mediate the transfer of monosaccharide from nucleotide-sugars to carbohydrate, lipid and protein based acceptors leading to formation of glycans. The regulation of the glycan structures ...
