Download your Free Mini-Review: The Role of Small Molecules in Stem Cell Biology
Small molecules are playing an ever increasing role in stem cell research - small molecules have been identified that can be used both in vitro and in vivo as tools to expand stem cells, direct their differentiation, or reprogram somatic cells. These molecules can also provide useful information regarding the signaling and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate stem cell biology.
This mini review describes the applications and advantages of small molecules in key areas of stem cell biology, and includes useful reference tables highlighting key small molecules.
With this review you can find out more about:
- The advantages of using small molecules in stem cell biology
- How small molecules can be used to manipulate stem cell fate
- The use of small molecules for reprogramming, self-renewal, differentiation and proliferation.
