Producing stem cells has always been a convoluted process. Thatâ€™s why the discovery of key transcriptional networks are helping to pave the way for new culturing methods and further advancements in the field of cell therapy (see also,Pluripotent Stem Cells â€“ What we know today) .
Piperlonguminine is a potential novel therapeutic agent for Alzheimer's disease. Extracellular deposits of A-beta in senile plaques of the cerebral cortex are known to be hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. Recent studies show that a mix of piperlonguminine and dihydropiperlonguminine significantly inhibit the expression of Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP). The decreased production of the peptide Amyloid-beta (A-beta) in SK-N-SH cells is...
