Poietis says it has already used the technique to create cartilage and similar viable kinds of cell types lines.
Nishimura’s shows how it happens in hair follicles, such shrinkage of organs is typical in many aging processes.
Our research revealed that hair follicle stem cells change their fate to be eliminated from the skin in response to DNA damage, he writes to TIME. Nishimura and his team found a chemical that triggers the shrinking process, and he says that in the future, it sort of sun damage, exposure to other chemicals and the aging process. This is where it starts getting very intriguing. Anyone who starts losing their hair is familiar with the phenomenon. Led by Emi Nishimura at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, the group found that wear and tear on the DNA of these hair follicle stem cells causes chemical changes that push the hair follicle away from growing new hair. In a report published in the journal Science, Japanese researchers provide a possible answer.
