Dissecting mechanisms controlling somatic cell reprogramming and tissue regeneration

Abstract:
Spontaneous cell fusion between two cells of different lineages can originate new hybrid cells that have different features from the original parent cells. Activation of the Wnt/B-catenin signalling pathway enhances reprogramming of somatic cells after their fusion with embryonic stem cells. We are dissecting the gene networks and studying the mechanisms of in-vivo somatic cell reprogramming, to determine whether reprogrammed hybrids have the potential to differentiate and regenerate tissues.
