METABOLIC SYNDROME MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT HARVESTED STEM CELLS
Environmental and Life Sciences isolated stem cells from fat tissue near the tail heads of six healthy horses and six that had EMS. After the cells were cultured, the researchers examined them for a variety of characteristics, including morphology, number and gene expressions, and compared the results.
The data showed that stem cells harvested from the fat tissue of horses with EMS were less likely to survive and proliferate than were those extracted from healthy horses. What’s more, the stem cells from EMS horses had structural flaws and impaired mitochondria, which
