Jumping genes can cause rare developmental disorders in children
First cell map of developing human liver reveals how blood and immune systems develop
In a world first, scientists have created the human developmental liver cell atlas that provides crucial insights into how the blood and immune systems develop in the foetus. It maps changes in the cellular landscape of the developing liver between the first and second trimesters of pregnancy, including how stem cells from the liver seed other tissues to support the high demand for oxygen needed for growth.
Fresh insights could lead to new treatments for liver disease
Scientists have identified new sub-types of cells that, when they interact, accelerate the scarring process in diseased livers.
