In their experiments, they found that in the foreign environment of the culture dish, stem cells begin producing excess proteins, causing extreme stress, they said. “Even for patients who do receive stem cell therapies, transplanting more cells yields fewer complications and increases chances of overarching success,” Signer said.

Advertisement “Now, we can preserve high-quality stem cells in culture over a prolonged period of time,” study co-author Robert Signer said in a press release. Researchers may have found a way to improve the health of lab-grown stem cells, according to a new study. This is because it remains unclear what nutrients these stem cells need to grow and thrive, EuroStemCell says. This stress activates the heat-shock response, which is designed to reduce this stress using the gene heat shock factor 1, the researchers said.
