Further doubts cast on purported STAP stem cell technique
HONG KONG – Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) researchers report being unable to replicate controversial research purporting to create stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotent (STAP) stem cells, which behave like induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, by simple acid-based treatment of somatic cells, suggesting that the method is not as simple or straightforward as initially claimed.
