The Stem-Cell-Like Function of Laminine
Embryonic and adult stem cells
During fetal development, whether an animal or human, the embryonic stem cells (ES) differentiate into vital organs. Some stem cells are retained as a natural repair mechanism in relative injury.
As aging takes place, these cells deplete over time. Thus in most cases, an intravenous or oral supplementation becomes necessary. Unfortunately, stem cell therapy is costly.
Laminine is not a stem cell therapy, but it can stimulate existing stem cells to initiate repair and promote homeostasis.
Bioactive peptide supplement aids cellular self-renewal.
Adult stem cells can regenerate small amounts of tissue organs. Systematically, it can initiate repair should a typical cell injury occur. However, adult stem cells cannot create new limbs or organs.
For stem cells to work, it needs adequate protein nourishment. But even with both stem cells and protein materials, it still needs signaling proteins to mobilize it.
One illustration of how it works is blood cells. We have billions of these cells that die each day. Despite it, blood cells thrive as new ones are continually generated, beginning with signaling proteins.
These signaling proteins are the growth factors or FGFs (fibroblast growth factors). They bind to specific receptors on the surface of cells and trigger a cascade of cellular responses that ultimately promote cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation. [Roles of FGF]
