Streamlined Stem Cell Production

Japanese scientists have found that stem cell production is as easy as dipping blood cells into acid. STAP (stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency) is a cell reprogramming method that has successfully reverted blood cells in mice back into stem cells with only a low pH shock of acid. The discovery was published in January’s issue of Nature…
