Viral gene delivery is hailed as a great milestone in gene-based therapeutic approaches. The human immunodeficiency virus-derived lentiviral vectors (LVs) are advantageous in infecting both dividing and non-dividing cells leading to continuous expression of transgenes. A variety of protocols are available for concentration of LVs. We primarily generated our internal ribosome entry site (IRES)-based LVs. Virus titration and transduction efficiency were compared between various strategies that included sucrose cushion centrifugation (SCC), protein column ultrafiltration and polyethylene glycol precipitation...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are an integral part of the bone marrow niche and aid in the protection, regeneration and proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells after exposure to myelotoxic taxane anti-cancer agents, but the influence of taxane compounds on MSCs themselves remains incompletely understood. Here, we show that bone marrow-derived MSCs are highly sensitive even to low concentrations of the prototypical taxane compound paclitaxel. While MSCs remained metabolically viable, they were strongly impaired regarding both their proliferation and their functional capabilities after exposure to paclitaxel...

Pharmacological dosing of all-trans-retinoic acid (atRA) controls adiposity in rodents by inhibiting adipogenesis and inducing fatty acid oxidation. Retinol dehydrogenases (Rdh) catalyze the first reaction that activate retinol into atRA. This study examined post-natal contributions of Rdh10 to atRA biosynthesis and physiological functions of endogenous atRA. Embryonic fibroblasts from Rdh10 heterozygote hypomorphs or with a total Rdh10 knockout exhibit decreased atRA biosynthesis and escalated adipogenesis...

Culturing of bone marrow cells in serum-free RPMI-1640 medium led to a decrease in the rate of DNA biosynthesis. Addition of HDL or their main protein component apolipoprotein A-I to the culture medium dose-dependently increased the rate of [3H]-thymidine incorporation into DNA. The maximum stimulation was achieved at HDL concentration of 80 μg/ml and apolipoprotein A-I concentration of 20 μg/ml. To identify the target-cells of apolipoprotein A-I, we used thymidine analogue 5-ethynyl-2'-deoxyuridine (EdU) that incorporates into cell DNA at the stage of replicative DNA synthesis (S phase) and can be detected by fluorescence microscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Although stem cell transplantation has beneficial effects on tissue regeneration, but there are still problems such as high cost and safety issues. Since stem cell therapy is largely dependent on paracrine activity, in this study, utilization of transplantation of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs)-secretome instead of the cells, into damaged ovaries was evaluated to overcome the limitations of stem cell transplantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this experimental study, BMSCs were cultured and 25-fold concentrated conditioned medium (CM) from BMSCs was prepared...

PURPOSE: Avascular necrosis of the talus is one of the most notable complications associated with talar neck fractures with frequent evolution of the osteonecrosis into a difficult arthrodesis. We tested whether the injection of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could improve the repair process of the osteonecrosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Forty-five early (without collapse) post-traumatic talus osteonecroses (group 1; study group) were treated between 1995 and 2012 with percutaneous injection of progenitor cells (autologous bone marrow concentrate from the iliac crest)...

It has been known that metabolism of benzene is necessary for its toxicity. The purpose of our study is to investigate the effect of diallyl trisulfide (DATS) on attenuating cytopenia in peripheral blood introduced by benzene through regulating benzene metabolism in rats. We established benzene poisoning model with benzene (1.3 g/kg), while the DATS treatment groups were treated with DATS plus benzene (15 or 30 mg/kg) for 28 days, respectively. The results of blood parameters and concentration of metabolites of benzene (t, t-MA and SPMA) determination in urine showed that DATS could effectively attenuate the cytopenia induced by benzene through regulating benzene metabolism...

Juvenile allogenic chondrocyte implantation (JACI; DeNovo NT Natural Tissue Graft®; Zimmer, Warsaw, IN) with autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) is a relatively new all-arthroscopic procedure for treating critical-size osteochondral lesions (OCLs) of the talus. Few studies have investigated the clinical and radiographic outcomes of this procedure. We collected the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients who had undergone JACI-BMAC for talar OCLs to assess treatment efficacy and cartilage repair tissue quality using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

BACKGROUND: Greater age and body mass index are strong risk factors for osteoarthritis (OA). Older and overweight individuals may be more susceptible to OA because these factors alter tissue turnover in menisci, articular cartilage, and bone via altered glucose homeostasis and inflammation. Understanding the role of inflammation and glucose homeostasis on structural features of early-stage OA may help identify therapeutic targets to delay or prevent the onset of OA among subsets of adults with these features...

Proteoglycans are promising therapeutic targets in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), because they regulate many aspects of the immune response. This was studied using surfen, an agent that binds both heparan sulphate proteoglycans (HSPGs) and chondroitin sulphate proteoglycans (CSPGs). Initial cell culture work on bone marrow derived macrophages (BMDMs) found that surfen reduced concentrations of the chemokines CCL2, CCL4 and CCL5, with reduced messenger (m)RNA expression for Tumor Necrosis Factor, IL-6, IL-1β and inducible nitric oxide synthase...

Wear debris-induced osteolysis is one of the major reasons for subsequent aseptic loosening after cementless hip arthroplasty. Increasing evidence suggests that receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) ligand-mediated osteoclastogenesis and osteolysis are responsible for wear debris-induced aseptic loosening. In the present study, we explored the effect of amentoflavone (AMF) on inhibiting osteoclast generation and wear debris-induced osteolysis in vitro and in vivo. Twenty-four male C57BL/J6 mice were randomly divided into four groups: a sham group and groups with titanium wear debris treatment followed by intraperitoneal injection of various concentrations of AMF (0, 20, and 40 mg/kg/day)...

Lung injury and fibrosis are common in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). Fibrocytes, a population of circulating, bone marrow-derived cells, have been linked to development and progression of tissue fibrogenesis and have been implicated in the development of lung fibrosis in preclinical models of SCD. We tested the hypothesis that the levels and activation state of circulating fibrocytes during steady state are associated with abnormal pulmonary function in adults with SCD. In a prospective cohort of steady-state adults with SCD and healthy age- and race-matched control participants, we measured the concentration and activation state of circulating fibrocytes and assessed pulmonary phenotype with pulmonary function tests (PFTs), a respiratory questionnaire, 6-minute walk test, high-resolution chest computed tomography scan, and echocardiogram...

The fetal liver is the site of a major expansion of the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) pool and is also a privileged organ to study megakaryocyte progenitor differentiation. We identified in the mouse fetal liver at day 13.5 a discrete stromal cell population harboring a CD45-TER119-CD31-CD51+VCAM-1+PDGFRα- (V+P-) phenotype that lacked colony-forming unit fibroblast activity and harbored an hepatocyte progenitor signature. This previously undescribed V+P- population efficiently supported megakaryocyte production from mouse bone marrow HSC and human peripheral blood HSC-myeloid progenitors cultured in the presence of limited cytokine concentrations...

High expression of the α chain of the interleukin-3 receptor (IL-3Rα; CD123) is a hallmark of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) leukemic stem cells (LSCs). Elevated CD123 expression is part of the diagnostic immunophenotyping of myeloid leukemia, and higher expression is associated with poor prognosis. However, the biological basis of the poorer prognosis is unclear, and may include heightened IL-3 signaling and non-cell autonomous interactions with the bone marrow (BM) microenvironment. We used TF-1 cells expressing different levels of CD123 and found elevated CD123 levels amplified the proliferative response to exogenous IL-3 and maintained viability in reducing IL-3 concentrations...

Mice deficient for microRNA (miRNA) cluster mirn23a exhibit increased B lymphopoiesis at the expense of myelopoiesis while hematopoietic stem and progenitor (HSPC) populations are unchanged. Mammals possess a paralogous mirn23b gene that can give rise to 3 mature miRNAs (miRs -23b, 24-1, and -27b) that have identical seed/ mRNA targeting sequences to their mirn23a counterparts. To assess whether compound deletion of mirn23a and mirn23b exacerbates the hematopoietic phenotype observed in mirn23a-/- mice, we generated a compound mirn23a-/-mirn23bfl/fl: Mx1-Cre conditional knockout mouse and assayed hematopoietic development after excision of mirn23b...

Ischemic heart diseases are a serious health problem worldwide. The transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) has been investigated in numerous clinical trials on various other diseases due to the self-renewal capacity of these cells and their potential to differentiate into a variety of cell types. The presence of excess reactive oxygen species in injured myocardium causes cardiac dysfunction and leads to inefficient repair of the heart. The poor outcomes of stem cell transplantation have been suggested to result from residual oxidative damage affecting the transplanted cells...
