Hypoxia promotes expansion of the CD133-positive glioma stem cells through activation of HIF-1α
Hypoxia contributes to the progression of a variety of cancers by activating adaptive transcriptional programs that promote cell survival, motility and tumor angiogenesis. Although the importance ofExpand

Skeletal muscle pericyte subtypes differ in their differentiation potential.
Neural progenitor cells have been proposed as a therapy for central nervous system disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases and trauma injuries, however their accessibility is a majorExpand

Association Between Midlife Vascular Risk Factors and Estimated Brain Amyloid Deposition
Importance Midlife vascular risk factors have been associated with late-life dementia. Whether these risk factors directly contribute to brain amyloid deposition is less well understood. Objective ToExpand

Role of pericytes in skeletal muscle regeneration and fat accumulation.
Stem cells ensure tissue regeneration, while overgrowth of adipogenic cells may compromise organ recovery and impair function. In myopathies and muscle atrophy associated with aging, fat accumulationExpand

Type-1 pericytes participate in fibrous tissue deposition in aged skeletal muscle.
In older adults, changes in skeletal muscle composition are associated with increased fibrosis, loss of mass, and decreased force, which can lead to dependency, morbidity, and mortality.Expand

Type-1 pericytes accumulate after tissue injury and produce collagen in an organ-dependent manner
IntroductionFibrosis, or scar formation, is a pathological condition characterized by excessive production and accumulation of collagen, loss of tissue architecture, and organ failure in response toExpand

Pericytes at the intersection between tissue regeneration and pathology.
Perivascular multipotent cells, pericytes, contribute to the generation and repair of various tissues in response to injury. They are heterogeneous in their morphology, distribution, origin andExpand

Type-2 pericytes participate in normal and tumoral angiogenesis.
Tissue growth and function depend on vascularization, and vascular insufficiency or excess exacerbates many human diseases. Identification of the biological processes involved in angiogenesis willExpand

Interleukin-13 receptor–targeted nanovesicles are a potential therapy for glioblastoma multiforme
The difficulties associated with treatment of malignant brain tumors are well documented. For example, local infiltration of high-grade astrocytomas prevents the complete resection of all malignantExpand

Pericytes are heterogeneous in their origin within the same tissue.
Pericytes heterogeneity is based on their morphology, distribution, and markers. It is well known that pericytes from different organs may have distinct embryonic sources. Yamazaki et al. (2017)Expand
