Hypoxia is associated with poor prognosis in most solid tumors due to its multiple effects on therapy resistance, angiogenesis, apoptotic resistance, and tumor invasion/metastasis. Here we used a comprehensive omics profiling to investigate hypoxia-regulated gene expression in HCT116 colon cancer cells. Quantitative analyses of proteome and secretome were performed in HCT116 cells cultured under hypoxic or normoxic conditions. A total of 5700 proteins were quantified in proteome analysis and 722 proteins were quantified in secretome analysis...

Adaptive resistance to therapy is a hallmark of cancer progression. To date, it is not entirely clear how microenvironmental stimuli would mediate emergence of therapy-resistant cell subpopulations, although a rearrangement of the cancer cell secretome following therapy-induced stress can be pivotal for such a process. Here, by using the highly chemoresistant malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) as an experimental model, we unveiled a key contribution of the chaperone HSP90 at assisting a chemotherapy-instigated Senescence-Associated-Secretory-Phenotype (SASP)...

Bone nonunion is a pathological condition in which all bone healing processes have stopped, resulting in abnormal mobility between 2 bone segments. The incidence of bone-related injuries will increase in an aging population, leading to such injuries reaching epidemic proportions. Tissue engineering and cell therapy using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have raised the possibility of implanting living tissue for bone reconstruction. Bone marrow was first proposed as the source of stem cells for bone regeneration...

Recent research has widely investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of mesenchymal stem cells and their secretory products, termed the secretome, in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). The present study examined the capacity of the conditioned medium (CM) from human periodontal ligament stem cells (hPLSCs) under hypoxia (H-hPDLSCs-CM) to suppress experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a murine model of MS. To induce EAE, female C57BL/6 mice were immunized with myelin oligodendroglial glycoprotein peptide35-55 At the onset of symptoms, H-hPDLSCs-CM was infused via the tail vein of mice...

Developing effective therapies against chronic wound healing deficiencies is a global priority. Thus we evaluated the safety of two different doses of topically administered autologous APOSEC, the secretome of apoptotic peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), in healthy male volunteers with artificial dermal wounds. Ten healthy men were enrolled in a single-center, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase 1 trial. Two artificial wounds at the upper arm were generated using a 4-mm punch biopsy...

The BRAF inhibitors vemurafenib and dabrafenib can be used to treat patients with metastatic melanomas harboring BRAFV600 mutations. Initial antitumoral responses are often seen, but drug-resistant clones with reactivation of the MEK-ERK pathway soon appear. Recently, the secretome of tumor-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) has been ascribed important functions in cancers. To elucidate the possible functions of EVs in BRAF-mutant melanoma, we determined the RNA content of the EVs, including apoptotic bodies, microvesicles, and exosomes, released from such cancer cells after vemurafenib treatment...

Cellular senescence is a state of irreversible cell proliferation arrest provoked by a persistent DNA damage induced by a variety of potentially oncogenic signals, and it functions as a primary tumor-suppression mechanism. Recent studies, however, revealed that senescent cells have the potential to secrete numerous inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and matrix-remodeling factors, since unlike apoptotic cells, senescent cells are viable for a long period of time. This newly identified phenotype of cellular senescence, called senescence-associated secretory phenotype(SASP or senescence-associated secretome), could potentially provide beneficial effects, such as tissue repair, but sometimes could induce deleterious side effects, such as cancer progression, depending on the biological context...

Periodontal disease is a prevalent chronic inflammatory condition characterised by an aberrant host response to a pathogenic plaque biofilm resulting in local tissue damage and frustrated healing that can result in tooth loss. Cysteine proteases (gingipains) from the key periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis have been implicated in periodontal disease pathogenesis by inhibiting inflammation resolution and are linked with systemic chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Efficient clearance of apoptotic cells is essential for the resolution of inflammation and tissue restoration...

The intercellular crosstalk between hematological malignancies and the tumor microenvironment is mediated by cell-to-cell interactions and soluble factors. One component of the secretome that is gaining increasing attention is the extracellular vesicles and, in particular, the exosomes. Apart from the role as vectors of molecular information, exosomes have been shown to possess intrinsic biological activity. In this study, we found that caspase-3 is activated in L88 bone marrow stroma cell-derived exosomes and identified 1 of the substrates to be the antiapoptotic protein Bcl-xL...

For almost two decades, cell-based therapies have been tested in modern regenerative medicine to either replace or regenerate human cells, tissues, or organs and restore normal function. Secreted paracrine factors are increasingly accepted to exert beneficial biological effects that promote tissue regeneration. These factors are called the cell secretome and include a variety of proteins, lipids, microRNAs, and extracellular vesicles, such as exosomes and microparticles. The stem cell secretome has most commonly been investigated in pre-clinical settings...

The secretome obtained from stem cell cultures contains an array of neurotrophic factors and cytokines that might have the potential to treat neurodegenerative conditions. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the most common human late onset and sporadic neurodegenerative disorders. Here, we investigated the therapeutic potential of secretome derived from dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) to reduce cytotoxicity and apoptosis caused by amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide. We determined whether DPSCs can secrete the Aβ-degrading enzyme, neprilysin (NEP), and evaluated the effects of NEP expression in vitro by quantitating Aβ-degrading activity...

Burn wounds pose a serious threat to patients and often require surgical treatment. Skin grafting aims to achieve wound closure but requires a well-vascularized wound bed. The secretome of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) has been shown to improve wound healing and angiogenesis. We hypothesized that topical application of the PBMC secretome would improve the quality of regenerating skin, increase angiogenesis, and reduce scar formation after burn injury and skin grafting in a porcine model. Full-thickness burn injuries were created on the back of female pigs...

OBJECTIVE: Intravenous or intraspinal transplantation of human umbilical cord blood cells-derived CD34(+) cells (human CD34(+) cells) or mesenchymal stem cells after spinal cord injury (SCI) improved hind limb functional recovery in adult rats. The objective of this study is to ascertain whether SCI in rats can be attenuated by conditioned medium (CM) or secretome obtained from cultured human CD34(+) stem cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned to one of the following five groups: the sham group, the SCI group treated with vehicle solution (SCI + V), the SCI group treated with CM (SCI + CM), the SCI group treated with 17β-estradiol E2 (10 μg; SCI + E2), and the SCI group treated with CM plus E2 (SCI + CM + E2)...

AIMS: Acute myocardial infarction (MI) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Anti-inflammatory strategies to reduce neutrophil-driven acute post-MI injury have been shown to limit acute cardiac tissue damage. On the other hand, whether neutrophils are required for resolving post-MI inflammation and repair is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We show that neutrophil-depleted mice subjected to MI had worsened cardiac function, increased fibrosis, and progressively developed heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Treatment options for women presenting with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) are limited due to the lack of a therapeutic target and as a result, are managed with standard chemotherapy such as paclitaxel (Taxol®). Following chemotherapy, the ideal tumour response is apoptotic cell death. Post-chemotherapy, cells can maintain viability by undergoing viable cellular responses such as cellular senescence, generating secretomes which can directly enhance the malignant phenotype...

The unique properties of mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (MSCs) to self-renew and their multipotentiality have rendered them attractive to researchers and clinicians. In addition to the differentiation potential, the broad repertoire of secreted trophic factors (cytokines) exhibiting diverse functions such as immunomodulation, anti-inflammatory activity, angiogenesis and anti-apoptotic, commonly referred to as the MSC secretome, has gained immense attention in the past few years. There is enough evidence to show that the one important pathway by which MSCs participate in tissue repair and regeneration is through its secretome...

We previously showed that, when peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were stressed with ionizing radiation, they released paracrine factors that showed regenerative capacity in vitro and in vivo. This study aimed to characterize the secretome of PBMCs and to investigate its biologically active components in vitro and vivo. Bioinformatics analysis revealed that irradiated PBMCs differentially expressed genes that encoded secreted proteins. These genes were primarily involved in (a) pro-angiogenic and regenerative pathways and (b) the generation of oxidized phospholipids with known pro-angiogenic and inflammation-modulating properties...

INTRODUCTION: Septic deaths occur in a deranged environment featuring both hyperinflammatory and immunosuppressive responses. At present, there is no approved immune-modulatory drug able to restore this imbalance. This study aimed to test a newly developed blood cell secretome preparation (APOSEC) upon outcome in the acute mouse model of polymicrobial sepsis. METHODS: 3-month-old female CD-1 mice (n = 40) underwent medium-severe cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) and were treated intraperitoneally with APOSEC (obtained from irradiated/apoptotic peripheral blood mononuclear cells) or saline at 6 h and 24 h post-CLP...
