quote: Using two specific molecules, called p16 and RGN, turned the cells to a much younger state.
quote: P16 and RGN are genes that are expressed at a higher level in aging cells.
quote: It's also worth noting that the results are from cells implanted into rats, not humans.
quote: The cell cultures are then infused with a combination of growth factors—common factors that cause blood vessel growth and cell proliferation—positioned in such a way within the porous scaffolding that the cells are able to be stimulated by these factors.
quote: Trolling people who add important details to typically-lacking news bytes on highly technical scientific journal articles makes YOU look like a tool.
quote: I don't know why you feel the need to attack this guy for attempting to add a little bit of detail. How dare he proffer a correction. The nerve of that guy?!Sure if hes saying things that are incorrect (see below) thats always a problem.
quote: On that note, your proposition that the culture environment is totally irrelevant as long as its suitable for cultivation is balderdash.
quote: Maybe if you qualified the cultivation milieu as being homologous to human...but you didn't. Cells can survive and even thrive in non-physiologic conditions.
quote: I don't have time to spare (too busy making science)
quote: to attempt more than a cursory, unsuccessful, search to find this article--probably too soon. However, I am skeptical this micro-environment was inside a rat. Entirely possible, but my gut feeling is some sort of cell-culture matrix. See below sentence:
quote: What's your point? Genes are molecules and paraphrasing wikipedia makes you look like a tool.
quote: No, it's not worth noting that because the experiment was testing the cells themselves
quote: In the second paragraph you reveal yourself to be a libtard, claiming my rebuttal to his post is an "attack". Obama much?
