Expression of Amyloidogenic Transthyretin Drives Hepatic Proteostasis Remodeling in an Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Model of Systemic Amyloid Disease

By generating an ATF6 inducible patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cell line, researchers demonstrated that enhancing hepatic ER proteostasis preferentially reduced the secretion of amyloidogenic transthyretin.

LIF Is Essential for ISC Function and Protects against Radiation-Induced Gastrointestinal Syndrome

Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is a cytokine essential for maintaining pluripotency of mouse ESCs. Scientists found that LIF was present in the intestinal stem cell (ISC) niche in crypts and critical for the function of ISCs in maintaining the intestinal epithelial homeostasis and regeneration.
