In the Nature Methods magazine appeared an article of a group of scientists from the Institute of Medicine and Health Guangzhou (GIBH), China, led by Duanqing Pei, that Chinese scientists for the first time managed to create a nerve cells from the brain cells, which are found in the urine, without the use of embryonic stem cells. Although the discovery of the possibility of reprogramming adult cells into immature stem cells, that can turn into any other cell, is was an important discovery, for which in 2012 biologists John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka received the Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine, but for the first time managed to create a full-nerve cells (neurons) from such a material as urine. As reported the biologist Duanqing Pei, to create a nerve cells (neurons) were used a kidney epithelial cells, which are located in ordinary urine, the transformation of cells in the urine into pluripotent stem cells took only 12 days. During the experiment, nerve cells, obtained from the urine, were transplanted into the brains of mice and after four weeks it have acquired the quality of conventional neurons. Author's lecture of Duanqing Pei can be found in this VIDEO:
