Epigenetic program leading to vessel differentiation

Clarification of how human blood vessels are constructed is desperately needed to advance regenerative medicine. Researchers in Japan investigated the changes in gene functions that occur when stem cells become vascular cells. They found that the histone code, which alters the transcriptional state of the gene, changes over time as stem cells differentiate into blood vessels in response to a stimulus. …read more
