Initially, scientists conducted research on the ineffectiveness of the method of inducing pluripotency.
While studying the shortcomings of this methodScientists have unexpectedly discovered that the process of reprogramming cells is not necessarily carried out in stages. All previous years, scientists believed that the process of transforming a cell should be carried out in stages, one by one disabling the genes in the cells.
It turned out that some cells canactivate pluripotency properties without disabling their previous properties. As a result of research, scientists have created a "cocktail" of skin cells, which, without ceasing to be them, began to turn into heart cells.
This will allow many times to speed up the process of reprogramming cells and increase the possibility of their successful transformation by 40%.
Previously, scientists from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem for the first time managed to synthesize all three types of stem cells that make up a human embryo at an early stage of development.
