Regulation of integrins is critical for lymphocyte adhesion to endothelium and migration throughout the body. Inside-out signaling to integrins is mediated by the small GTPase Ras-proximate-1 (Rap1). Using an RNA-mediated interference screen, we identified phospholipase Cε 1 (PLCε1) as a crucial regulator of stromal cell-derived factor 1 alpha (SDF-1α)-induced Rap1 activation. We have shown that SDF-1α-induced activation of Rap1 is transient in comparison with the sustained level following cross-linking of the antigen receptor...

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-transfected adipose-derived stromal cells (ADSCs(VEGF) ) were devised to promote bone regeneration and neovascularization of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs). ADSCs(VEGF) were added to BMSCs and cocultured in variable proportions. ADSCs(VEGF) alone or ADSCs(VEGF) with BMSCs (BMSCs:ADSCs(VEGF) ratio of 1:0.025-0.5) induced significantly greater tube formation in human umbilical vein endothelial cells than untransfected ADSCs. The cocultures of BMSCs and ADSCs(VEGF) at ratios of 1: 0...

Inflammation plays a pivotal role in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis (ATH). Due to their potent immunomodulatory properties, mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are evaluated as therapeutic tools in ATH and other chronic inflammatory disorders. Aging reduces MSCs immunopotency potentially limiting their therapeutic utility. The mechanisms that mediate the effect of age on MSCs immune-regulatory function remain elusive and are the focus of this study. Human adipose tissue-derived MSCs were isolated from patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery...

Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are considered adult progenitor stem cells and have been studied in a multitude of tissues. In this context, the microenvironment of nasal polyp tissue has several inflammatory cells, but their stroma compartment remains little elucidated. Hence, we isolated MSCs from nasal polyps Polyp-MSCs (PO-MSCs) and compared their molecular features and gene expression pattern with bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs). Initially, both PO-MSCs and BM-MSCs were isolated, cultivated, and submitted to morphologic, differentiation, phenotypic, immunosuppressive, and gene expression assays...

Stem cells have tremendous promise to treat intractable diseases. Notably, adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are actively being investigated because of ease of sampling and high repopulation capacity in vitro. ADSCs can exert a therapeutic effect through differentiation and paracrine potential, and these actions have been proven in many diseases, including cutaneous and inflammatory diseases. Transplantation of ADSCs necessitates therapeutic quantities and thus, long term ex vivo culture of ADSCs. However, this procedure can impair the activity of ADSCs and provoke cellular senescence, leading to low efficacy in vivo...

Recent studies have shown that bone morphogenetic protein 9 (BMP-9) can induce osteogenic differentiation in human periodontal stem cells and human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PDLFs). Bone morphogenetic protein 9 may be used in periodontal tissue regeneration because of its potent osteoinductive ability. Human periodontal ligament cells also have been demonstrated to produce stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1), which is important for stem-cell homing and recruitment to injured sites. In the present study, we examined the involvement of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signaling axis in osteogenic differentiation and SDF-1 production in human PDLFs stimulated with BMP-9 in osteogenic medium supplemented with dexamethasone and ascorbic acid...

Acute pulmonary inflammation is still a frightening complication in intensive care units and has a high mortality. Specific treatment is not available, and many details of the pathomechanism remain unclear. The recently discovered chemokine receptor CXCR7 and its ligand stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1 are known to be involved in inflammation. We chose to investigate the detailed role of CXCR7 in a murine model of LPS inhalation. Inflammation increased pulmonary expression of CXCR7, and the receptor was predominantly expressed on pulmonary epithelium and on polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMNs) after transepithelial migration into the alveolar space...

Chronic lung transplant rejection (termed chronic lung allograft dysfunction [CLAD]) is the main impediment to long-term survival after lung transplantation. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) represent an attractive cell therapy in inflammatory diseases, including organ rejection, given their relative immune privilege and immunosuppressive and tolerogenic properties. Preclinical studies in models of obliterative bronchiolitis and human trials in graft versus host disease and renal transplantation suggest potential efficacy in CLAD...

Mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) application in Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3)-induced myocarditis reduces myocardial inflammation and fibrosis, exerts prominent extra-cardiac immunomodulation, and improves heart function. Although the abovementioned findings demonstrate the benefit of MSC application, the mechanism of the MSC immunomodulatory effects leading to a final cardioprotective outcome in viral myocarditis remains poorly understood. Monocytes are known to be a trigger of myocardial tissue inflammation. The present study aims at investigating the direct effect of MSC on the mobilization and trafficking of monocytes to the heart in CVB3-induced myocarditis...

Calvarial bone repair remains challenging for adults. Although adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) hold promise to heal bone defects, use of ASCs for critical-size calvarial bone repair is ineffective. Stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1) is a chemokine capable of triggering stem cell migration. Although recombinant SDF-1 protein is co-delivered with other molecules including BMP-2 to facilitate calvarial bone repair, these approaches did not yield satisfactory healing. This study aimed to exploit a newly developed Cre/loxP-based hybrid baculovirus for efficient gene delivery and prolonged transgene expression in ASCs...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The periodontal ligament (PDL) is a non-mineralized connective tissue that exists between the alveolar bone and root surface cementum and plays important roles in tooth function. The PDL harbors a remarkable reserve of multipotent stem cells, which maintain various types of cells. However, the sources of these stem cells, other than their developmental origin, are not well understood. MATERIAL AND METHODS: To elucidate the recruitment of bone marrow (BM)-derived stem cells in the PDL, green fluorescent protein (GFP)-expressing BM-derived cells were transplanted into the femoral BM of immunodeficient rats, and the distribution and expression of stem cell markers in the PDL were analyzed in vivo...

Adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC)-based therapy is promising for critical limb ischemia (CLI) treatment, especially in patients with diabetes. However, the therapeutic effects of diabetic ADSCs (D-ADSCs) are impaired by the diabetes, possibly through intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation. The objective of the present study was to detect whether overexpression of methylglyoxal-metabolizing enzyme glyoxalase-1 (GLO1), which reduces ROS in D-ADSCs, can restore their proangiogenic function in a streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice model of CLI...

Perivascular stem cells (PSCs) are the natural ancestors of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and are the stem cells responsible for homeostasis and repair in vivo. Prospectively identified and isolated PSCs have demonstrated increased plasticity and osteogenic potential. Cells from the infrapatellar fat pad (IFP) have demonstrated increased chondrogenic potential compared with those from subcutaneous fat. This research assessed the chondrogenic potential of IFP PSCs compared with MSCs from the IFP and bone marrow...

Bridging large bone defects with mesenchymal stromal cells-seeded scaffolds remains a big challenge in orthopedic surgery, due to the lack of vascularization. Within such a cell-scaffold construct cells are exposed to ischemic conditions. When human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) encounter hypoxic conditions, they show higher cell proliferation than at ambient oxygen levels. However, when hMSCs are exposed to prolonged ischemia, cell proliferation ceases completely. Exposure of hMSCs to hypoxic conditions is known to result in the transcription of angiogenic factors (AGF), which can promote the development of a new blood vessels...

Heart failure often develops after acute myocardial infarction because the injured myocardial tissue fails to recover or regenerate. Stem cell transplantation using adult cell sources, such as adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction (SVF), draws extensive attention. In this study, SVF cells were isolated from rat adipose tissue and cultivated on enzyme-crosslinked gelatin hydrogels. Morphological features of cell development and spontaneous beating behavior from these cells were observed and recorded. Cardiac phenotypes were characterized via immunofluorescence staining, and the expression of cardiac-specific genes was measured via RT-PCR...

BACKGROUND: -Genome-wide association studies identified the association of the CXCL12 genetic locus (which encodes the chemokine CXCL12, also known as stromal cell-derived factor 1) with coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial infarction (MI). Unlike CXCR4, the classical receptor for CXCL12, the function of CXCR7 (the most recently identified receptor) in vascular responses to injury and in MI remains unclear. METHODS: -Tissue expression of CXCR7 was examined in arteries from mice and humans...
