New Technology Helps Identify Two Rare Skin Cell Subtypes


Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), using technology developed by Fibrocell Science, have identified two rare adult stem cell-like subpopulations in adult human skin, potentially, potentially providing a source of stem cell-like subpopulations from skin biopsies. The findings, published in BioResearch Open Access, pertain to two subtypes of cells: SSEA3-expressing regeneration-associated (SERA) cells, which may play a role in the regeneration of human skin in response to injury and mesenchymal adult stem cells (MSCs).
