Because such genetic mutations can cause diseases, should the cells for such mutations tested tested used for clinical applications.
A cooperative study with two groups from the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin has search for search for mutations in the mitochondrial genome of iPS cells. Adds.s Adjaye research group recently discovered that the mitochondria rejuvenate in the course of reprogramming. In partnership with Next Generation Sequencing Research Group Bernd Timmermann Adjaye has show team that mutations mutations in the mitochondrial genome of all reprogrammed cells, were not present in the original cells have succeeded. The amount of mutations varies considerably between different examined iPS cells. In all cases the changes include include large rearrangements but modifications of individual letters of the genetic code. (more…)

Brain imaging studies have shown similar patterns of brain activity when subjects feel their own emotions or observe the same emotions in others. Was suggested that has been suggested that a person who a specific feeling a specific feeling would empathize a difficult time directly with a person with a mirror matching mechanism requires prior experience and would instead on a higher inferential processes called perspective taking .
During this study, researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging brain activation patterns in CIP patients and controls, which are asked to rate the feelings of a person in a photo, body parts in painful situations or facial expressions of pain was imagine, were compared.
