Homeostatic neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus does not involve amplification of Ascl1high intermediate progenitors

Lugert S, Vogt M, Tchorz JS, Müller M, Giachino C. and Taylor V.
Publication in Nature Communications in February 2012, 3:670.


Drosha regulates neurogenesis by controlling Neurogenin 2 expression independent of microRNAs.
Knuckles P, Vogt MA, Lugert S, Milo M, Chong MM, Hautbergue GM, Wilson SA, Littman DR. and Taylor V.
Publication in Nature Neurosci. in June 2012, 15:962-969.

The group of Verdon Taylor at the Laboratory of Embryology and Stem Cell Biology Department of Biomedicine Mattenstrasse demonstrated that Notch-dependent adult neural stem cells in the hippocampus generate differentiated neurons in a multistep process over several weeks. They identified a novel intermediate progenitor cell type and demonstrated the amplification of the lineage at the Tbr2(+) stage. In a second paper they demonstrated a novel function for the RNAse Drosha in the maintenance of neural stem cells that involves miRNA-independent destabilization of proneural mRNAs (including Neurog2).



April 2012 Interview of Prof. Alois Gratwohl in frame of the NFP63 programme "Stem cells and regenerative medicine".

According to A. Gratwohl, 7 years after the Stammzellforschungsgesetz passed in 2005, research on embryonic stem cells in Switzerland has not received enough stimulation and has not sufficiently promoted the field among young scientists.

Hsp90 globally targets paused RNA polymerase to regulate gene expression in response to environmental stimuli.

Sawarkar R, Sievers C, Paro R.
Publication in Cell. 2012 May 11;149(4):807-18.
PDF download

The group of Renato Paro at the D-BSSE, ETH Zürich in Basel, identified HSP90, the molecular chaperone heat-shock protein, to function as an essential regulator of genes in Drosophila and mammalian cells involved in a rapid response to environmental stimuli. The finding is of broad importance for understanding the processes of evolution and disease.

Polycomb function during oogenesis is required for mouse embryonic development.

Posfai et al.
Publication in Genes and Development. 2012, 26:920-932
PDF download

The group of Antoine Peters at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel demonstrated that two key components of the chromatin regulatory complex, called Polycomb Repressive Complex 1, specify the maternal contribution in oocytes that is required for the development of pre-implantation embryos. The work indicates that Polycomb group proteins act in the female germline to establish developmental competence by silencing differentiation-inducing genes and defining appropriate chromatin states.

Kevin Eggan, Harvard University
Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Cambridge, MA
"Stem cell and reprogramming approaches to the study of neurodegeneration"

Kevin Eggan is Howard Hughes Medical Institute Early Career Scientist and Associate Professor at the
Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology of the Harvard University. His laboratory is pursuing two interlocking areas of investigation: the basic biology of stem cell programming and reprogramming, and the application of the resulting technologies to studies of the neuromuscular system and the diseases that affect it. The in vitro models of neuromuscular diseases are established for both mechanistic studies and for the discovery of novel small molecule therapeutics.

"Probing and manipulating single hematopoietic stem cell fate in artificial niches"

Research in the Lutolf ’s Laboratory is at the interface of stem cell biology and bioengineering to gain fundamental insight into how protein components of tissue-specific microenvironments (niches) control the behavior of stem cells.

His group has recently published:
Artificial niche microarrays for probing single stem cell fate in high throughput.

7th annual Swiss Stem Cell Network meeting

December 2010 Alois Gratwohl has been nominated the Honorary Member of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMW) for his contributions to the field of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
November 2010 The group of Rolf Zeller at Department of Biomedicine of the University of Basel established a new approach to genetically modify murine ES cells (Nature Methods, November issue 2010).
The method allows a precise and highly efficient exchange of genetic sequences taking advantage of the existing conventional recombinase sites inserted into the thousands of already available conditional mouse alleles.
September 2010 Embryonic stem cells help uncovering a novel role for neurotrophin receptors. Using engineered embryonic stem cells, the group of Yves Barde at the Biozentrum discovered an unexpected role for growth factor receptors. The new findings explain previous observations that nerve cells in the developing brain are much less dependent on a supply of growth factor for their survival, compared with those of the peripheral nervous system.  The latter served as a paradigm for the action of growth factor on neurons for over 50 years.    Weblink
