  • Deisseroth knew that if only the misbehaving neurons could be prodded into life with cell-specific technology, leaving the rest of the brain untouched, it would be a far better treatment for the disease.

    World Wide Mind

  • In their studies in mice, the researchers showed that while forced activation of hypothalamic IKKβ/NF-κB interrupts central insulin/leptin signaling and actions, site - or cell-specific suppression of IKKβ either broadly across the brain or locally within the hypothalamus actually protects against obesity and glucose intolerance.

  • Human iPS cells were similar to human embryonic stem ES cells in morphology, proliferation, surface antigens, gene expression, epigenetic status of pluripotent cell-specific genes, and telomerase activity.

  • And then on top of that, of course, you have this cell-specific program with these master-regulator genes that are making a blood cell different from an eye cell different from a skin cell.

  • And in a certain case by Deepak Srivastava, where he could take skin cells and put them into a - make them into a heart, he actually took the master regulators of the heart cells themselves, these cell-specific regulators that tell a gene to turn on in a heart cell, and that turned these cells into a beating tissue.
