Stem cell technique to “revolutionise” regenerative medicine

April 21, 2022

Transient reprogramming of stem cells may hold the answer to rejuvenating aging cells without compromising on their function, claim researchers from the Epigenetics research programme at Babraham Institute, UK. The technique, which would normally take around 50 days, instead involves partial reprogramming of cells – finessed by the Babraham researchers, the new technique exposes cells […]

Buckwheat extract found to promote protein clean-up in cells

October 6, 2021

A type of buckwheat liquor used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) was found to influence an important activity in cells: tartary buckwheat extract induces autophagy, a process that cells use to clean up proteins that are damaged or no longer needed. Researchers from Japan’s Osaka University, who made the discovery, also said that a specific […]

Weak magnetic fields interacting with cells promote good muscle health

December 1, 2020

Healthy muscles ensure many aspects of health but for those suffering from injury, disease or frailty because of old age, exercise isn’t always a viable option. Thankfully, scientists at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have discovered a molecule that can promote muscle health when subjected to weak magnetic fields – it can be used […]
