We studied umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells and compared mesenchymal stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood, adipose tissue, and skin. Umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells were characterized morphologically, cytofluorometrically, and by their differentiation potential. Umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells did not differ from(More)
Cell-to-cell interactions of human mesenchymal multipotent stromal cells (MMSC) and rat renal tubular cells (RTC) were explored under conditions of co-cultivation. We observed formation of different types of intercellular contacts, including so called tunneling nanotubes. These contacts were shown to be able to provide transfer of cell's contents, including(More)
Neural stem cells of human brain were cultured for a long time and successfully transplanted into the brain of rats exposed to acute hypoxia. Stem and committed cells, neuroblasts, and astrocytes were revealed in transplants by immunohistochemical assay. The transplants and brain tissue were not separated with a glial barrier. Human neuroblasts widely(More)
Expression of transcription factors PAX6, PROX1, and PITX2 was evaluated in eye tissues after 9.5 and 22.0 weeks of human fetus development using polymerase chain reaction. Pax6, Prox1 and Pitx2 expression has been revealed in the cornea, lens, retina, and eye membranes (total preparation of the pigment epithelium, choroid, and sclera) after 9.5 weeks of(More)
UNLABELLED The goal of the present study was to maximally alleviate the negative impact of stroke by increasing the therapeutic potency of injected mesenchymal multipotent stromal cells (MMSCs). To pursue this goal, the intercellular communications of MMSCs and neuronal cells were studied in vitro. As a result of cocultivation of MMSCs and rat cortical(More)
Isolation and cultivation of stem and progenitor cells of human embryos and fetuses at the age of 7-12 weeks of gestation have been described. The embryonic cells of human brain formed neurospheres with heterogenous composition. Cell differentiation took place not only in the presence of serum or as a result of attachment of neurosphere to a sublayer, but(More)
Extraembryonic tissues, in particular, umbilical cord stroma are promising sources of multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells for regenerative medicine. In recent years, methods for isolation of mesenchymal stromal cells from different compartments of the umbilical cords based on enzymatic disaggregation of the tissue or on tissue explants have been proposed.(More)
We, for the first time, directly compared gene expression profiles in human non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLCs) and in human fetal lung development. Previously reported correlations of gene expression profiles between lung cancer and lung development, deduced from matching data on mouse development and human cancer, have brought important information,(More)
Human neural stem cells (HNSCs) are used in studies of neural development and differentiation, and are regarded as an alternative source of tissue for neural transplantation in degenerative diseases. Selection and standardization of HNSC samples is an important task in research and clinical approaches. We evaluated embryonal brain matter obtained from human(More)
We describe a method of isolation of human mesenchymal stromal cells from the umbilical cord (Wharton’s jelly) and human placenta: amnion, placental villi, and trophoblast. Morphology, immunophenotypic characteristics, and differentiation potencies of isolated cells were studied. The capacity of mesenchymal stromal cells from extraembryonic tissues to(More)
