How to Build a Human

How to Build a Human

A BBC series on the building blocks of our biology and the role of Stem Cells in the process of our creation. How our ability to use Stem Cells can change the medicine of tomorrow and the truly remarkable possibilities that Stem Cells hold.

จับประเด็นสำคัญของเรื่อง ( Main Ideas of this story)

1.เป็นผลงานวิจัยของนักพันธุวิศวกรรมศาสาสตร์ ที่พบความลับของ ดีเอ็น เอ ซึ่งควบคุมรหัสพันธุกรรมของมนุษย์
2.พวกเขาพยายามจะสร้างชิ้นส่วนมนุษย์ขึ้นมาใหม่เพื่อทดแทนอวัยวะที่สูญเสียไป
3.ในอนาคตมีบางคนกลัวว่าพวกเขาจะสร้างมนุษย์พันธุ์ใหม่ขึ้นมาแทนที่พวกเรา แต่ปัจจุบันเขาสามารถสร้างทายาทของพวกเราในมดลูกเทียมได้แล้ว

Adult Stem Cells and Regeneration

This lecture by Dr. Nadia Rosenthal discusses the importance of adult stem cells in the tissue maintenance, development and regeneration. Part 1 of 6.

HHMI description:
Mature organisms have stem cells of various sorts, called adult stem cells. Adult stem cells supply cells that compensate for the loss of cells from normal cell death and turnover, such as the ever-dying cells of our skin, our blood, and the lining of our gut. They are also an essential source of cells for healing and regeneration in response to injury. Some animals, such as sea stars, newts, and flatworms, are capable of dramatic feats of regeneration, producing replacement limbs, eyes, or most of a body. It is an evolutionary puzzle why mammals have more limited powers of regeneration.

Researchers are interested in pinpointing where adult stem cells reside and in understanding how flexible adult stem cells are in their ability to produce divergent cells such as muscle and red blood cells. Understanding the sources and the rules for the differentiation of adult stem cells is essential for tapping their therapeutic potential. Since consenting adults can provide adult stem cells, some people think that adult stem cells may be a less controversial area of research than embryonic stem cells.
