Here, we have now developed a new inducing system to promote the differentiation of human stem cells (hESCs) toward hematopoietic lineages by the treatment with cells extract of human fetal liver tissue (hFLT). The embryoid bodies (EBs) obtained from human H1 embryonic stem cells were exposed to buffer, hFLT cells extract, heated hFLT cell extract, and cell(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct the plant expression vectors containing the multiepitope gene of Toxoplasma gondii (TGMG). METHODS 1. TGMG was subcloned into pBAC55 vector to construct the intermediate plasmid pB35MG. The E35S/TGMG/NOS3' fragment was cleaved from pB35MG and ligated into the plant binary vector pCAMBIA2300 to construct the plant expression vector(More)
Recent studies have suggested that prostaglandin (PG) E2 (PGE2) and the prostaglandin pathway are essential for hematopoietic stem cell growth and development. However, similar studies on hematopoietic commitment from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are still limited. Here we report that the addition of PGE2 promotes hematopoietic differentiation of(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain the gene encoding tomato fruit-specific E8 promoter therefore to prepare for exogenous gene transcription and expression in transgenic tomato fruit. METHODS The cotyledons of tomato Lycopersicon esculentum (Zhongshu No.5) were collected for extracting the genomic DNA of this plant. The fruit-specific E81.1 and E82.2 promoter DNA were(More)
The study was aimed to investigate the effect of deriving hematopoietic cells from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) by the erythropoietin gene-modified conditioned medium of human mesenchymal cells. The mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) steadily expressing EPO were established by lentiviral system. The expression of exogenous EPO was detected by RT-PCR and(More)
Human embryonic stem (hES) cells are typically maintained on mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) feeders or with MEF-conditioned medium. However, these xenosupport systems greatly limit the therapeutic applications of hES cells because of the risk of cross-transfer of animal pathogens. The stem cell niche is a unique tissue microenvironment that regulates the(More)
Blood cells transfusion and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) transplantation are important methods for cell therapy. They are widely used in the treatment of incurable hematological disorder, infectious diseases, genetic diseases, and immunologic deficiency. However, their availability is limited by quantity, capacity of proliferation and the risk of blood(More)
