OBJECTIVE Adipose Tissue Stromal Cells (ASCs) have important clinical applications in the regenerative medicine, cell replacement and gene therapies. Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue (SAT) is the most common source of these cells. The adult human thymus degenerates into adipose tissue (TAT). However, it has never been studied before as a source of stem cells. (More)
Nucellar calli from two citrus cultivars with known tolerance to mal secco disease were chosen as experimental material, to test the pathogen's response to culture filtrate (CF) and partially purified toxin (PPT). The response of the two calli to the CF was in reverse order to the known response of the two cultivars to natural and artificial inoculations(More)
Real-time or quantitative PCR (qPCR) is a useful technique that requires reliable reference genes for data normalization in gene expression analysis. Adipogenesis is among the biological processes suitable for this technique. The selection of adequate reference genes is essential for qPCR gene expression analysis of human Vascular Stromal Cells (hVSCs)(More)
Phoma tracheiphila is the causative agent of the disease mal secco. Citrus cultivars differ substantially in respect to their sensitivity to the pathogenP. tracheiphila and its toxin. Some cultivars (e.g., 'Femminello' lemon) are inherently sensitive while others (e.g., 'Tarocco' orange) are tolerant. Cell lines derived from nucellar tissue of 'Femminello',(More)
