Human actin-related protein 2/3 complex (Arp2/3), required for actin filament branching, has two ARPC1 component isoforms, with ARPC1B prominently expressed in blood cells. Here we show in a child with microthrombocytopenia, eosinophilia and inflammatory disease, a homozygous frameshift mutation in ARPC1B (p.Val91Trpfs*30). Platelet lysates reveal no ARPC1B protein and greatly reduced Arp2/3 complex. Missense ARPC1B mutations are identified in an unrelated patient with similar symptoms and ARPC1B deficiency...

BACKGROUND: Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is a multifunctional protein, and its deficiency leads to the development of atherosclerosis in mice. Patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) have reduced expression of ApoE in lung tissue. ApoE is known to inhibit endothelial and smooth muscle cell proliferation and has anti-inflammatory and anti-platelet aggregation properties. Young ApoE-deficient mice have been shown to develop PH on high fat diet. The combined role of female sex and aging in the development of PH has not been investigated before...

Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are promising candidates for therapeutic applications such as tissue engineering. However, one of the main challenges is to improve oxygen supply to hypoxic areas to reduce oxygen gradient formation while preserving MSC differentiation potential and viability. For this purpose, a marine hemoglobin, HEMOXCell, was evaluated as an oxygen carrier for culturing human bone marrow MSCs in vitro for future three-dimensional culture applications. Impact of HEMOXCell on cell growth and viability was assessed in human platelet lysate (hPL)-supplemented media...

Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AMSCs) offer potential as a therapeutic option for clinical applications in musculoskeletal regenerative medicine because of their immunomodulatory functions and capacity for trilineage differentiation. In preparation for a phase I clinical trial using AMSCs to treat patients with osteoarthritis, we carried out preclinical studies to assess the safety of human AMSCs within the intra-articular joint space. Culture-expanded human AMSCs grown in human platelet-lysate were delivered via intra-articular injections into normal healthy rabbit knees and knees at risk for the development of osteoarthritis after bilateral medial anterior hemimeniscectomy...

1. CS-0777, a candidate compound for autoimmune diseases, becomes phosphorylated active metabolite, M1, by fructosamine 3-kinase (FN3K), FN3K-related protein (FN3K-RP); and M1 is reverted back to CS-0777 by alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in the body. We performed enzyme kinetic analysis of phosphorylation of CS-0777 by FN3K, FN3K-RP, human erythrocytes and human platelets; and dephosphorylation of M1 by various ALP isozymes and human liver, kidney, lung and small intestine microsomes. 2. The Michaelis constants of human FN3K, FN3K-RP and erythrocytes for CS-0777 phosphorylation were in the range from 498 μM to 1060 μM...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The use of biological fluids in AD diagnosis remains limited to the analysis of specific protein biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid. However, metabolomic analysis has recently revealed several metabolites in plasma, especially phosphatidylcholines (PC), as putative biomarkers specific for AD. Following on previous reports of platelet abnormalities in AD, we hypothesized that platelets metabolites released in plasma may offer new biomarkers in AD...

Bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) have shown therapeutic potential in the treatment of myocardial infarction patients. However, bone marrow requires invasive harvesting techniques. Therefore, the aim was to carry out a feasibility study of using autologous peripheral blood (PB) as a source for MSCs and platelet lysate (PL), a potential novel therapeutic intervention in acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients. Autologous PL and MSCs were prepared from STEMI patient and healthy control blood...

Essentials The effect of alloantibodies on the endothelial expression of thrombomodulin is unknown. Thrombomodulin was quantified in stimulated endothelial cells and measured in serum samples. Anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) I vs. II antibodies have different effects on thrombomodulin. Anti-HLA II antibodies may promote a prothrombotic state and contribute to microangiopathy. SUMMARY: Rationale Thrombomodulin (TBM) is an anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory transmembrane protein expressed on endothelial cells...

BACKGROUND AIMS: Clinical protocols for dendritic cell (DC) generation from monocytes require the use of animal serum-free supplements. Serum-free media can also require up to 1% of serum supplementation. In addition, recommendations based on the 3Rs (Refinement, Reduction, Replacement) principle also recommend the use of non-animal sera in in vitro studies. The aim of this study was to explore the potential use of platelet lysate (PL) for generation of optimally differentiated DCs from monocytes...

BACKGROUND AIMS: Extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) may contribute to biological processes such as tissue regeneration, immunomodulation and neuroprotection. Evaluation of their therapeutic potential and application in future clinical trials demands thorough characterization of EV content and production under defined medium conditions, devoid of xenogenic substances and serum-derived vesicles. Addressing the apparent need for such a growth medium, we have developed a medium formulation based on pooled human platelet lysate (pHPL), free from animal-derived xenogenic additives and depleted of EVs...

BACKGROUND: Over the past decades, the focus on the regenerative properties of platelets (PLTs) has intensified and many PLT-derived growth factors are readily used in medical settings. A general lack of standardization in the preparation of these growth factors remains, however, and this study therefore examines the dynamics of growth factors throughout the freeze-thaw procedure. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Plateletpheresis (PA) and PLT-poor plasma (PPP) samples were collected from 10 healthy donors...

Platelets are a rich source of many cytokines and chemokines including transforming growth factor β 1 (TGF-β1). TGF-β1 is required to convert conventional CD4(+) T (Tconv) cells into induced regulatory T (iTreg) cells that express the transcription factor Foxp3. Whether platelet contents will affect Treg cell properties has not been explored. In this study, we show that unfractionated platelet lysates (pltLys) containing TGF-β1 efficiently induced Foxp3 expression in Tconv cells. The common Treg cell surface phenotype and in vitro suppressive activity of unfractionated pltLys-iTreg cells were similar to those of iTreg cells generated using purified TGF-β1 (purTGFβ-iTreg) cells...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are promising candidates as a cell-based therapy for osteoarthritis (OA), although current results are modest. Pre-treatment of MSCs before application might improve their therapeutic efficacy. HYPOTHESIS: Pre-treatment of MSCs with inflammatory factors or hypoxia will improve their migration and adhesion capacities toward OA-affected tissues. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study. METHODS: We used real-time polymerase chain reaction to determine the effects of different fetal calf serum (FCS) batches, platelet lysate (PL), hypoxia, inflammatory factors, factors secreted by OA tissues, and OA synovial fluid (SF) on the expression of 12 genes encoding chemokine or adhesion receptors...
