"At the same time, however, there needs to be a mechanism in the body that prevents an uncontrolled differentiation of stem cells, because otherwise the supply of these cells in the muscles would be quickly depleted," said Carmen Birchmeier, of the Max Delbruck
Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association 'MDC).
A new study by scientists from the Experimental and Clinical Research Centre and Max Delbruck
Centre for Molecular Medicine in Berlin has warned that high salt consumption may prove fatal to certain gut bacteria.
Reporting in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Carmen Birchmeier and Luis Hernandez-Miranda, of the Max Delbruck
Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, and their colleagues showed that infant mice stripped of this key node " a mere 17,000 neurons, located in the evolutionarily ancient hindbrain " can breathe slowly and passively, but not vigorously or animatedly.
It turns out that a different protein, TrkA, is the key to the missing pain signals, Gary Lewin of the Max Delbruck
Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin and colleagues report in the Oct.
A special kind of immune cell serves as an intermediary between gut bacteria and the brain, according to Susanne Wolf from Max Delbruck
Centre for Molecular Medicine in Germany.
Guidelines developed by scientists at the Max Delbruck
Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the Helmholtz Association make it possible for researchers all over the world to obtain the coveted stem cells.

Lead author Mark Ladinsky, an electron microscope scientist at Caltech worked with Pamela Bjorkman, Max Delbruck
Professor of Biology at Caltech, used a technique called electron tomography, in which a tissue sample is embedded in plastic and placed under a high-powered microscope.
