Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) have been proposed as an ideal autologous stem cell source for cell-based therapy for myocardial infarction (MI). However, decreased viability and impaired function of aged MSCs hampered the therapeutic efficacy of engrafted MSCs, and the underlying mechanisms remain unclarified. Here, we investigated the(More)
5-Diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (IP7), formed by a family of inositol hexakisphosphate kinases (IP6Ks), has been demonstrated to be a physiologic inhibitor of Akt. IP6K inhibition may increase Akt activation in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), resulting in enhanced cardiac protective effect after transplantation. The aim of this study was to investigate(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) and targeted therapies present major challenges in tumor chemotherapy. Nanoparticles (NPs) hold promise for use in cancer theranostics due to their advantages in terms of tumor-targeted cytotoxicity and imaging. In this study, we developed N-((2-hydroxy-3-trimethylammonium) propyl) chitosan chloride (HTCC)/alginate-encapsulated(More)
