Retrovirus in the human genome is active in pluripotent stem cells

  • PDF
Jan. 23, 2013 — A retrovirus called HERV-H, which inserted itself into the human genome millions of years ago, may play an important role in pluripotent stem cells, according to a new study published in the journal Retrovirology by scientists at UMass Medical School. Pluripotent stem cells are capable of generating all tissue types, including blood cells, brain cells and heart cells. The discovery, which may help explain how these cells maintain a state of pluripotency and are able to...

When Did the First Human Appear on Earth?

  • PDF
Even if people were not created, but evolved, shouldn’t there be a First Human? Who was this person? And when did he/she appear?

But if we go back in time like this, when does the chain of our ancestors end? If we were created, as for example the Bible says, then of course the chain ends at our creation point. But suppose for a moment...
