Vitronectin (VN) is a multi-functional protein involved in extracellular matrix (ECM)-cell binding through integrin receptors on the cell surface, which is an important environmental process for maintaining biological homeostasis. We investigated how VN affects the survival of endothelial cells after radiation damage. VN attenuated radiation-induced(More)
Three-dimensional (3-D) aggregate culturing is useful for investigating the functional properties of mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs). For 3-D MSC analysis, however, pre-expansion of MSCs with two-dimensional (2-D) monolayer culturing must first be performed, which might abolish their endogenous properties. To avoid the need for 2-D expansion, we used(More)
The generation of induced-pluripotential stem cells- (iPSCs-) derived mesenchymal stem cells (iMSCs) is an attractive and promising approach for preparing large, uniform batches of applicable MSCs that can serve as an alternative cell source of primary MSCs. Appropriate culture surfaces may influence their growth and differentiation potentials during iMSC(More)
