Adult bone marrow (BM) contains Sca-1+/Lin-/CD45- very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) that express markers of several lineages, including cardiac markers, and differentiate into cardiomyocytes in vitro. We examined whether BM-derived VSELs promote myocardial repair after a reperfused myocardial infarction (MI). Mice underwent a 30-minute coronary(More)
Adult bone marrow-derived very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSEL-SCs) exhibit a Sca-1(+)/Lin(-)/CD45(-) phenotype and can differentiate into various cell types, including cardiomyocytes and endothelial cells. We have previously reported that transplantation of a small number (1 × 10(6)) of freshly isolated, non-expanded VSEL-SCs into infarcted mouse(More)
