Several cytokines and growth factors are released by proteolytic cleavage of a membrane-anchored precursor, through the action of ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) metalloproteases. The activity of these proteases is regulated through largely unknown mechanisms. In this study we show that Ab engagement of several tetraspanins (CD9, CD81, CD82)(More)
In addition to its well-known effect on migration and homing of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs), CXCL12 chemokine also exhibits a cell cycle and survival-promoting factor for human CD34(+) HSPCs. CXCR4 was suggested to be responsible for CXCL12-induced biological effects until the recent discovery of its second receptor, CXCR7. Until now, the(More)
Cell cycle regulation plays a fundamental role in stem cell biology. A balance between quiescence and proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells in interaction with the microenvironment is critical for sustaining long-term hematopoiesis and for protection against stress. We analyzed the molecular mechanisms by which stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1)(More)
