UCSF Journal Club: Recent research by UCSF scientists

By Taylor LaFlam
Staff Writer

STEM CELL BIOLOGY: Two miRNA clusters reveal alternative paths in late-stage reprogramming. Parchem, R.J., et al. (Blelloch). Cell Stem Cell. 2014 Mar 11. Epub ahead of print.

The ability to effectively convert fully differentiated cells into stem cells through the addition of a few specific factors has produced an explosion of research and a Nobel Prize. It remains unclear, however, the degree to which this rewinding to a stem cell needs to proceed through all intervening developmental stages.

UCSF Journal Club: Recent research by UCSF scientists

REPRODUCTIVE BIOLOGY: Mammalian Fused is essential for sperm head shaping and periaxonemal structure formation during spermatogenesis. Nozawa, I., et al. (Chuang). Dev Biol. 2014 Feb. 10. Epub ahead of print.

As depicted in many middle school sexual education videos, sperm rely on their vigorously beating tail to propel themselves on their long journey to the egg. The development of this flagellum is part of the final phase of spermatogenesis.

Although the sequence of events occurring during this final metamorphosis is well described, the precise mechanism remains poorly understood.

REGENERATIVE MEDICINE: Small molecules facilitate the reprogramming of mouse fibroblasts into pancreatic lineages. Li, K., et al. (Ding). Cell Stem Cell. 2014. 14(2):228-236.

For nearly a century, insulin therapy has allowed those with Type 1 diabetes to live long lives, albeit through frequent monitoring and treatment and with heightened risks of a variety of health problems. Pursuit of a practical, permanent cure continues.
