Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are involved in tissue repair and in the regulation of immune responses. MSC express Toll-like receptors (TLR) known to link innate and adaptive immunity. We hypothesized that TLR signaling could influence human MSC (hMSC) function. Here, we show that hMSC express TLR1, TLR2, TLR3, TLR4, TLR5, and TLR6 but not TLR7, TLR8,(More)
Due to their immunomodulatory properties, adipose tissue (AT) and Wharton's Jelly (WJ) constitute valuable alternatives to BM as sources of MSCs for managing graft-versus-host disease. To ensure the efficiency of AT- and WJ-MSCs implies the characterization of their immunomodulatory functions in comparison to those of BM. In this study, we investigated the(More)
Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) possess immunomodulatory functions and have been proposed as a tool for managing or preventing graft-versus-host disease. Recently, adipose tissue (AT) and Wharton's jelly (WJ) have been reported as potential alternative MSC sources to bone marrow (BM). In this study, we investigated the capacity of MSCs derived from AT and(More)
