Scottish scientists make embryonic stem cell find

Scottish scientists have made a discovery which sheds light on how embryonic stem cells develop and grow.  The researchers at Edinburgh University focused on the process which causes these stem cells – the building blocks of the body with the ability to turn into different types of cell and tissue – to renew themselves and increase in number.

The researchers say they now have a better understanding of how the properties of embryonic stem cells are controlled after finding a  protein could be harnessed to boost their growth.
