Esophageal tissue was enlarged in the laboratory with stem cell
The Cincinnati stem cell and organoid Medical Children’s Center (CuSTOM) focuses on the SOX2 gene which is known to stimulate the esophageal conditions when their functions are broken, and the protein associated with this gene in about two months during the study 300 to 800 micrometer length of the esophagus was enlarged tissue.
In the framework of the research, mice, frogs and human tissue cultures were used to identify the genetic and molecular pathways that Sox2 the functioning of the esophageal process.
The tissue that was enlarged in the laboratory indicated the biochemically striking resemblance to the esophageal tissues taken from the patient with biopsy.
The details of the study, which was expected to pave the way for the development of regenerative tissue therapies in the treatment of digestive system Disorders, were published in cell Stem cell magazine.
