At the 2013 BioPharma Asia 2013 Convention, Leah A. Vardy from the Institute of Medical Biology A*STAR delivered the following presentation entitled:
Understanding post transcriptional control in ES cell self-renewal and differentiation.
This presentation covers:
- The role of translational regulation in ES cells during differentiation to neural precursor cells (NPC)
- Identification of Amd-1 as an important polyamine regulator that influence ES cell renewal and differentiation
- Translation of Amd-1 is downregulated in NPCs by miR762 during neural differentiation
- Upregulation of Amd-1 protein promotes ES cells maintainence
