This year’s Noble prize winner for Physiology or Medicine Prof. Sudhof C Thomas (from Stanford University, California, USA) has published a paper in the Journal Neuron stating that “Rapid single-step induction of Functional neurons from Human pluripotent stem cells.”  This study suggests that “Neurogenin-2 overexpression rapidly transforms ESCs and iPSCs into neurons.”

In connection with this finding, Dr Boominathan, Founder Director-cum-chief scientist of GBMD, reports that: Size doesn’t matter- action matters: p53/p63/p73-dependent microRNAs regulate the induction of functional neurons from human IPS cells This finding suggests that targeting the expression of p53/p63/p73-dependent microRNAs in iPScs and ESCs may aid the generation of functional neurons.
