Induced pluripotent stem cells
From replacing the insulin producing cells of the body, to serving as genetic and drug screening platforms, stem cells could change the landscape of available treatments for diabetes.
Mutations in the gene HNF4A impair liver and pancreas development, indicating that maturity-onset diabetes of the young starts much earlier than initially thought.
A protein named GATA6 is key to the development of a normal pancreas in humans.
A*STAR researchers have devised a method to generate a renewable source of mature human Kupffer cells for liver toxicity bioassays.
