BACKGROUND The Side Population (SP) has become an important hallmark for the definition of the stem cell compartment, especially in the detection of these cells and in their physical isolation by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS). SP cells are CD34neg and were discovered using ultraviolet excitation based on the efflux of Hoechst 33342 (Ho342).(More)
BACKGROUND It is well known that estrogens regulate cell cycle progression, but the specific contributions and mechanisms of action of the estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta) remain elusive. METHODS We have analyzed the levels of ERbeta1 and ERbeta2 throughout the cell cycle, as well as the mechanisms of action and the consequences of the over-expression of(More)
Previous work by our group showed that transferring bone marrow cells transduced with a self-antigen induced immune tolerance and ameliorated experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a model of multiple sclerosis (MS). We also found that following retroviral transduction of murine bone marrow (BM) cells, the majority of cells generated and(More)
