Novel interaction in cell reprogramming discovered16 September 2014Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and reprogrammed cells promise to be the key for regenerative medicine in the coming years. New research has demonstrated an important regulation between two genes, Nanog and β-catenin, in mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs).
Egyptian artworks trace ecological collapse over 6,000 years8 September 2014Depictions of animals in ancient Egyptian artefacts have helped scientists assemble a detailed record of the large mammals that lived in the Nile Valley over the past 6,000 years. A new analysis of this record shows that species extinctions, probably caused by a drying climate and growing human population in the region, have made the ecosystem progressively less stable.
