Human Skin Cells Used to Make Neutrons for Larger Cells

Team HTV Mar 02 2015

Researchers of CUMC and NYSCF have converted human skin cells into neutrons that regulate appetite.

Previously mice and harvested cells from human autopsy was used for research, which limited findings, but this study has enabled researchers to turn skin cells into IPS cells and then these into potential neutrons.  Although they are not similar to natural neutrons of this kind, these can be turned into any larger cell. In this study, researchers have advanced in understanding neurophysiology of weight, control and the possible treatments of obesity.
