Stem Cell Research

Stem cells are unspecialized cells with the capability of renewing themselves through cell division and the remarkable potential to differentiate into many different cell types. Multiple types of stem cells have been identified, including embryonic and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent and can differentiate into all cell types of the mature organism. In contrast, adult stem cells such as hematopoietic, muscle, cardiac, neural, and mesenchymal stem cells, have limited potency, and are generally thought to populate only the tissue of residence. Recent advances in stem cell biology have identified some transcription factors that are sufficient to reprogram somatic cells back to an undifferentiated state. Like other stem cell types, these induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have potentials for developing models of human diseases for drug and toxicology studies, and applying cell therapies for regenerative medicine. In addition, the cellular origins of some cancers are believed to depend on genetic alterations in cancer stem cells that allow for uncontrolled proliferation.

Stem cell research holds great potential in developmental biology, disease modeling, drug development, and cell therapy. It is one of the most fascinating areas of contemporary biology. AS ONE INTERNATIONAL provides all kinds of research tools such as growth factors, cell culture media, cells, antibodies, other tools such as microgravity simulating device (Gravite) for your stem cell research.
