To determine why cultivation of Mycobacterium leprae in vitro has not been successful, we attempted to culture this bacterium in media supplemented with a variety of biological materials. We observed a slight increase in the number of cells in medium supplemented with human blood plasma and an extract of nude mouse tissue after more than 3 months of cultivation at 30°C. To ascertain whether this increase was real growth, we analyzed the growth by droplet digital PCR. The analysis had the following two results: the slow increase in the copy number of cell-associated DNA and the release of a large amount of DNA into the culture medium from bacterial cells during cultivation...

In cancer cells, the reversible nature of the stemness status in terms of chemoresistance has been poorly characterized. In this study, we have simulated on cycle of environmental conditions to study such reversibility by first generating floating tumorspheres (FTs) from lung and breast cancer cells by culturing them in serum-free media without the addition of any external mitogenic stimulation, and subsequently (after two weeks) re-incubating them back in serum-containing media to simulate routine culture conditions (RCCs)...

Growing adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC) in serum-free conditions is important as it represents a way of expanding multipotent cells in a clinical grade medium. Most cultured ADSC are expanded and tested in serum-containing media, which can pose significant health risks if these cells were used in clinical applications. Moreover, cells grown in serum-free conditions behave significantly different than those cultured in serum-containing media. Here, we present a technique to culture adipose-derived stem cells in serum-free conditions...

Here, we present data on the effects of emu oil, obtained from emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae) fat deposits, on melanogenesis in B16F1 murine melanoma cells. The cells were cultured in media containing different concentrations of emu oil, and the melanin content of these cells was measured using a microplate reader. Next, melanin content was measured for cells cultured with α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone. This article reports the different melanin contents as μg melanin/mg cellular protein, by using bar graphs with error bars...

BACKGROUND: Stem cell therapy using adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs), which are capable of multipotent differentiation, is currently being investigated in the field of tissue regeneration and the treatment of patients in intensive care units. It is known that type-A γ-aminobutyric acid (GABAA) receptor activity has an influence on stem cell proliferation. Thus, we investigated the effects of the clinically available GABAA receptor agonists, etomidate and midazolam, on ADSC proliferation measured by the cell counting kit-8 assay...

Aquaporins (AQPs) are 13 integral membrane proteins that provide selective pores for the rapid movement of water and other uncharged solutes, across cell membranes. Recently, AQPs have been focused for their role in production, circulation, and homeostasis of the cerebrospinal fluid and their importance in several human diseases is becoming clear. This study investigated the time course (0, 14, and 28 days) of AQP1, 4, 7, 8, and 9 during the neural differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from adipose tissue (AT)...

Tween 80 is a widely used non-ionic emulsifier that is added to cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and foods. Because of its widespread use we need to understand how it affects bacteria on our skin, in our gut, and in food products. The aim of this study is to investigate how Tween 80 affects the growth and antimicrobial susceptibility of Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are common causes of spoilage and foodborne illnesses. Addition of 0.1% Tween 80 to laboratory growth media increased the growth rate of planktonic S...

The heart produces multiple diffusible factors that are involved in a number of physiological processes, but the action of these factors on the central nervous system is not well understood. In this study, we found that one or more factors released by cardiomyocytes promote oligodendrocyte precursor cell (OPC) proliferation in vitro. Mouse OPCs co-cultured with mouse cardiomyocytes showed higher proliferative ability than OPCs cultured alone. In addition, cardiomyocyte-conditioned media was sufficient to promote OPC proliferation...

BACKGROUND: In mammalian females, reproductive capacity is determined by the size of the primordial follicle pool. During embryogenesis, oogonia divide mitotically but cytokinesis is incomplete so oogonia remain connected in germ cell cysts. Oogonia begin to enter meiosis at 13.5 days postcoitum in the mouse and over several days, oocytes progress through the stages of meiotic prophase I arresting in the diplotene stage. Concurrently, germ cell cysts break apart and individual oocytes become surrounded by granulosa cells forming primordial follicles...

Fatty acid synthase (FASN) is responsible for the endogenous production of fatty acids from acetyl-CoA and malonyl-CoA. Its overexpression is associated with poor prognosis in human cancers including melanomas. Our group has previously shown that the inhibition of FASN with orlistat reduces spontaneous lymphatic metastasis in experimental B16-F10 melanomas, which is a consequence, at least in part, of the reduction of proliferation and induction of apoptosis. Here, we sought to investigate the effects of pharmacological FASN inhibition on lymphatic vessels by using cell culture and mouse models...

This study tried to clarify the antagonistic effect of the lipopeptides secreted by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain BPD1 (Ba-BPD1) against Pyricularia oryzae Cavara (PO). To determine the major antifungal lipopeptides effective against PO, single and dual cultures were carried out in solid-state media. The matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF IMS) was used to identify the most effective lipopeptide in situ. Meanwhile, the morphology of pathogen fungi treated with lipopeptides was observed via the SEM...

The current study aimed to address the impact of serum from type 2 diabetes patients on the angiogenic properties of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and its relationship to autophagy signaling. Human primary stem cells were enriched and incubated with serum from diabetic and normal subjects for 7 days. Compared to data from the control group, diabetic serum was found to induce a higher cellular death rate (p < 0.001) and apoptotic changes (p < 0.01). We also showed that diabetic condition significantly abolished angiogenesis tube formation on Matrigel substrate, decreased cell chemotaxis (p < 0...

Stem cells are important for regenerative medicine mainly due to their multilineage differentiation capacity. However, the cells rapidly loose this capability during culturing. Cryopreservation preserves the differentiation potential of the cells, until they are needed. In this study, specific cell properties of multipotent stromal cells (MSCs), from the common marmoset monkey Callithrix jacchus MSCs derived from amnion (Am) and bone marrow (Bm) were studied in order to predict optimal cooling rates for cryopreservation...
