How to Sleep a Hundred Years - Lessons from a Sleeping Beauty
The fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty (SB) by the Grimm Brothers tells the story of an unfortunate princess who was cursed by a bewitched fairy and doomed to sleep for a hundred years. As a famous bedtime story, the story of Sleeping Beauty surely evokes childhood memories. However, recent findings from a scientific collaboration amongst Hokkaido University, Saitama University (both in JAPAN), and Academia Sinica (TAIWAN) put a different light on the villain of the story. Searching for factors that control cell polarity in plants, research teams led by Fujita Tomomichi (Hokkaido University) and Teh Ooi-Kock (Academia Sinica) uncovered two similar arabinogalactan proteins - small proteins harboring a sugar moiety - that yo-yo between a witch and a Beauty (of nature)......
A receptor-binding domain-based nanoparticle vaccine elicits durable neutralizing antibody responses against SARS-CoV-2 and variants of concern
ASD254 is a COVID-19 nanoparticle vaccine jointly developed by Dr. Mi-Hua Tao's research group in the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Academia Sinica and Ascendo Biotechnology. This vaccine uses the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of the spike protein, which composes most of the immune-dominant epitopes for inducing neutralizing antibodies, as antigen and utilizes ASD25x nanoparticle vaccine platform to enhance its immunogenicity......
Ketogenic Gene Therapy Allows Heart Regeneration and Rejuvenation
Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, with myocardial infarction (heart attack) being the most common cause. Heart transplantation is still the optimal treatment for the disease, but there are insufficient donors to meet the demands. In mammals, including humans, cardiac muscle cells (cardiomyocytes) cannot keep dividing and forming new cells after birth, meaning we are unable to regenerate the heart after injury. However, some animals such as salamander and zebrafish can successfully regenerate the heart after injury, using a process called “dedifferentiation”. A new study from Taiwanese researchers has shown that ketone production in the heart links to this dedifferentiation process and can allow for regeneration after injury......
Robust Stem Cell Expansion by Hydrogelated Feeder Cell Technology
A research group led by Dr. Che-Ming Jack Hu of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Academia Sinica in Taiwan developed an innovative cell-derived biomaterial system for robust expansion of stem cells, which has significant therapeutic implication in regeneration medicine and tissue engineering......
