Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent a promising alternative source for cartilage tissue engineering. However, MSC culture is labor-intensive, so these cells cannot be applied immediately to regenerate cartilage for clinical purposes. Risks during the ex vivo expansion of MSCs, such as infection and immunogenicity, can be a bottleneck in their use in clinical tissue engineering. As a novel stem cell source, pericytes are generally considered to be the origin of MSCs. Pericytes do not have to undergo time-consuming ex vivo expansion because they are uncultured cells...

Kidney diseases are a public health problem worldwide; the mortality rate is between 50 and 80%. Available therapies include replacement function by dialysis or transplant, associated with a high morbidity and mortality; kidney transplantation is limited by the shortage of donor organs, immune rejection and lifelong treatment with immunosuppressive. Likewise, none of these treatments compensates all kidney functions. There is a great concern in developing more effective therapies with the ability to replace the wide range of renal functions, so that, new researches on developing therapeutic strategies have focused on regenerative medicine, science that includes artificial creation of tissues and organs, in order to repair or replace a tissue or organ function...

Various clinical studies have revealed that cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are associated with bone loss diseases such as osteoporosis and periodontitis, especially in older population. As one of the best-established risk factors of CVD, hyperlipidemia is also reported to interfere with the metabolism, function and regeneration of mineralized tissues. Derived from postnatal tissue reservoirs, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are considered promising cell sources for mesenchymal and non-mesenchymal tissue regeneration based on their capacities for self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation as well as potent immunosuppressive effects, secretion of cytokines and regulation of vascularization...

Recently some studies identified the Basic-Helix-Loop-Helix (bHLH) transcription factor as a significant regulator for the evolution of neoplasms. The binding between bHLH proteins and DNA is restricted by heterodimerization with Inhibitors of DNA binding (ID). IDs prevent cellular differentiation, promote growth and sustain tumor development. The wide presence of stem cells in cancers suggests that genes ID are essential to cancer stem cells (CSC) progress. The enzyme Ubiquitin-specific protease 1 (USP1) is reported by deubiquitination and stabilization of IDs...

Pharmacotherapy and surgery constitute the mainstay of treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, post-treatment relapsing and recurrence persist as concerns in patients with IBD. Together with a considerable economic burden, stem cell therapy (SCT) has emerged as a promising treatment strategy in IBD, including hematopoietic stem cells (HST), mensenchymal stem cells (MSCs). HSCT could restore the immune tolerance following chemotherapy-induced immune ablation, and MSCs could affect immune cells or secret trophic factors to treat IBD...

Targeting the tumor microenvironment (TME) through which cancer stem cells (CSCs) crosstalk for cancer initiation and progression, may open up new treatments different from those centered on the original hallmarks of cancer genetics thereby implying a new approach for suppression of TME-driven activation of CSCs. Cancer is dynamic, heterogeneous, evolving with the TME and can be influenced by tissue-specific elasticity. One of the mediators and modulators of the crosstalk between CSCs and mechanical forces is miRNA, which can be developmentally regulated, tissue- and cell-specific...

Mesenchymal stem cells not only possess reparative properties, but also have immunomodulatory effect. Owing to the properties, they have been proposed to be hopeful candidates for cell therapy in the process of organ transplantation. In the preclinical researches, it shows that MSCs is capable of prolonging graft survival and inducing tolerance in some cases. Various mechanisms of immune tolerance were reported before, such as tolerogenic dendritic cells, induction of apoptosis, regulatory T cells, mixed chimerism, soluble factors and anergy...

Acquired severe aplastic anemia (SAA) is a rare and life-threatening bone marrow failure syndrome characterized by cytotoxic T-cells excessive activity, hematopoietic precursors decrease and peripheral blood (PB) pancytopenia. Patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) died 1 to 2 years after diagnosis due to fatal infections and/or hemorrhagic complications if they went without any effective treatment. Nowadays, Immunosuppressive therapy (IST) and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are still the standard treatment for SAA...

This study was to compare differentiation potential of bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) and adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) from Sprague-Dawley rats towards annulus fibrosus (AF)-like cells. Using coculture plates with 0.4μm pore size polyethylene terephthalate (PET) track-etched inserts (Corning,USA), MSCs and AF cells were cocultured with direct cell-to-cell contact up till 21 days. We evaluated the AF markers expression at the histological level and molecular level. Quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) results showed up regulation in AF marker gene expressions of both two MSCs after coculture...

BACKGROUND: Development is an epigenetic regulation dependent event. As one pre-transcriptional regulator, bivalent histone modifications were observed to be involved in development recently. It is believed that histone methylation potentially takes charge of cell fate determination and differentiation. The synchronous existence of functionally opposite histone marks at transcript start sequence(TSS) is defined as "Bivalency", which mainly mark development related genes. H3K4me3 and H3K27me3, the prominent histone methylations of bivalency, are implicated in transcriptional activation and transcriptional repression respectively...

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death worldwide. Damage to the heart resulting from cardiovascular disease leads to gradual loss of function and reduced quality of life. Cardiac injury is particularly debilitating, more so than injury to any other organ given our current inability to either generate new and functional cardiac tissue or to mimic the actions of the heart using external devices. Advances in the field of stem cells and genetics have paved the way for the development of a variety of novel therapies...

The Hippo signaling pathway serves as a main regulator of tissue growth and organ size through the moderation of cell cycle dynamics across many different species. In mammals, the two downstream transcriptional regulators of this pathway are Yes-associated protein (YAP) and transcriptional co-activator with PDZ binding motif (TAZ). Recent studies found in addition to the core Hippo signaling pathway, other signaling pathways can also regulate YAP/TAZ activity, either directly or through crosstalk with the Hippo pathway...

With the development of chemotherapy and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), the prognosis of leukemia patients has been improved greatly in the past few decades. However, relapsed and refractory leukemia is still the major cause of mortality in leukemia patients. Besides, advancing age, poor performance status and severe co-morbidities limit the applicability of cytotoxic chemotherapy in certain groups of leukemia patients. Novel agents including nucleoside analogs, kinase inhibitors targeting oncoproteins and monoclonal antibodies are under investigation for the management of leukemia...

Stem cells (SCs) are capable of self-renewal and multilineage differentiation. Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) which can be obtained from multiple sources, are suitable for application in regenerative medicine and transplant therapy. The aim of this review is to evaluate the potential of genomic and proteomic profiling analysis to identify the differentiation of MSCs and HSCs towards osteoblast and odontoblast lineages. In vitro differentiation towards both of these lineages can be induced using similar differentiation factors...

Lung diseases cause great morbidity and mortality. The choice of effective medical treatment is limited and the number of lung diseases are difficult to treat with current treatments. The embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have the potential to differentiate into cell types of all three germinal layers, including lung epithelial cells. So they can be a potential source for new cell therapies for hereditary or acquired diseases of the airways and lungs. One method for treatment of lung diseases is cell therapy and the use of ESCs that can replace the damaged epithelial and endothelial cells...

The extracellular matrix is produced by the resident cells in tissues and organs, and secreted into the surrounding medium to provide biophysical and biochemical support to the surrounding cells due to its content of diverse bioactive molecules. Recently, the extracellular matrix has been used as a promising approach for tissue engineering. Emerging studies demonstrate that extracellular matrix scaffolds are able to create a favorable regenerative microenvironment, promote tissue-specific remodeling, and act as an inductive template for the repair and functional reconstruction of skin, bone, nerve, heart, lung, liver, kidney, small intestine, and other organs...
