http://ift.tt/2xkpxNe A system called “Beta-bow”, which allows the history of ?-cells to be traced by genetic bar-coding and multicolor imaging, has been developed by researchers.
http://ift.tt/2jO9gdM Chronic tissue inflammation resulting from obesity is an underlying cause of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. But the mechanism by which this occurs has remained cloaked, until now. In a new paper, researchers identified exosomes — extremely small vesicles or sacs secreted from most cell types — as the missing link.
http://ift.tt/2jQvZWO Heart disease and heart-related illnesses are a leading cause of death around the world, but treatment options are limited. Now, one group reports that encapsulating stem cells in a nanogel could help repair damage to the heart.
http://ift.tt/2xqFnVB In the future diabetics might benefit from getting insulin-regulating beta cells transplanted into their body because their own beta cells are destroyed or less functional. However, according to new stem cell research, the current way of producing beta cells from stem cells has significant shortfalls. The beta cells produced have some features resembling alpha cells.
http://ift.tt/2ys8lCY An unexpected natural protective factor has been found against chronic inflammation that drives cardiovascular disease in type 2 diabetes.
http://ift.tt/2jMJI0M The answer to the question of why some organisms can regenerate major body parts while others, such as humans, cannot may lie with the body’s innate immune system, according to a new study of heart regeneration in the Mexican salamander.
