Stem cells are considered as a boon for mankind in the medical world. But the limited supply of stem cells has paused the progress on many fronts. Researchers working on embryonic like stem cells from adult donors.
NANOG gene codes for nanog protein involved in the self renewal of embryonic stem cells. This is considered as a key factor for pluripotency of embryonic stem cells and gives potential to derive any type of cells (endoderm, ectoderm, mesoderm). Presence of more amounts of Nanog protein in the mouse embryonic stem cells caused self renewal but in the absence caused differentiation of embryonic stem cells into functionally different cells. This gives very important clue to the medical world. The literal understanding of this gene will lead into new avenue where patient own cells can be used for curing many degenerative diseases and sprouts the healing power hidden within the body.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
