The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on the apoptosis of granulosa cells (GCs) in rats. BMSCs and GCs were isolated from rats. GCs were separated into one of the following three groups: an untreated control group (control), a cisplatin (5 mg/L) treatment group (cisplatin), and group co-cultured(More)
The saturated free fatty acid (FFA), palmitate, could induce apoptosis in various cell types, but little is known about its effects on human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs). Here, we investigated whether palmitate induced apoptosis and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in hUC-MSCs. hUC-MSCs were stained by labeled antibodies and(More)
RHO GTPases regulate cell migration, cell-cycle progression, and cell survival in response to extracellular stimuli. However, the regulatory effects of RHO GTPases in mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are unclear. Herein, we show that CDC42 acts as an essential factor in regulating cell proliferation and also takes part in lipotoxic effects of palmitate in(More)
