Protein in Royal Jelly Shows Promise in the Facilitation of Stem Cell Research

Aside from being vital pollinators, bees produce a number of products that benefit human health. Honey is an obvious one, but there are others as well, such as royal jelly, a nutritious substance secreted by nurse bees as exclusive nourishment for the queen of the hive.  Recent research by Stanford University scientists found royalactin (also known as major royal jelly protein, or MRJP1), a protein found in royal jelly responsible for the queen's massive growth, has the ability to keep embryonic stem cells pluripotent.  Read more...
