Induced pluripotent stem cells have helped researchers map the role of the RFX6 gene in a rare congenital disorder known as Mitchell-Riley Syndrome.
Asian patients with suspected but undiagnosed rare genetic diseases could get answers sooner thanks to next-generation sequencing technologies.
When placed in the proper environment, even stem cells from unlikely sources like the bladder or prostate can form skin components like hair follicles and sebaceous glands.
The mysterious trigger of the NLRP1 inflammasome sensor has finally been identified: a protease found in the common cold-causing human rhinovirus tells our body that it has been invaded.
