The influence of heart valve leaflet matrix characteristics on the interaction between human mesenchymal stem cells and decellularized scaffolds.
The potential for in vitro colonization of decellularized valves by human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBM-MSCs) towards the anisotropic layers ventricularis and fibrosa and in homo- vs.Expand

Phenotype and genotype of interfollicular large B cells, a subpopulation of lymphocytes often with dendritic morphology.
We describe large B cells, many of which have a stellate or dendritic morphology, found in the interfollicular T-cell-rich areas of human peripheral lymphoid tissue. These B cells probably requireExpand

Improvement of diaphragmatic performance through orthotopic application of decellularized extracellular matrix patch.
Muscle tissue engineering can provide support to large congenital skeletal muscle defects using scaffolds able to allow cell migration, proliferation and differentiation. Acellular extracellularExpand

The NFATc1 transcription factor is widely expressed in white cells and translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus in a subset of human lymphomas
Stimulation of lymphoid cells via their surface receptors triggers signalling pathways that terminate in the nucleus, where they induce alterations in gene transcription. Nuclear factor of activatedExpand

Expression of intracellular signaling molecules in classical and lymphocyte predominance Hodgkin disease.
The neoplastic cells in classical Hodgkin disease (Reed-Sternberg cells) are of B-lymphoid origin, but they lack many markers of this cell lineage, for example, immunoglobulin, CD20, andExpand

Transmembrane adaptor molecules: a new category of lymphoid-cell markers.
Transmembrane adaptor proteins (of which 7 have been identified so far) are involved in receptor signaling in immune cells. They have only a short extracellular region, with most of the moleculeExpand

Expression pattern of FCRL (FREB, FcRX) in normal and neoplastic human B cells
FCRL (also known as FREB and FcRX) is a recently described member of the family of Fc receptors for immunoglobulin G (IgG). In the present study we analysed its expression in normal and neoplasticExpand

Leukocyte-specific phosphoprotein-1 and PU.1: two useful markers for distinguishing T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma from lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's disease.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma is a rare variant of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. It shows morphologic, phenotypic and molecular similarities to lymphocyte predominantExpand

High transduction efficiency of human amniotic fluid stem cells mediated by adenovirus vectors.
In the last few years some studies have shown the possibility of deriving progenitors with various potential from the amniotic fluid. Amniocentesis is a widely accepted method for prenatal diagnosis;Expand

Mesenchymal stromal cells can be derived from bone marrow CD133+ cells: implications for therapy.
It is known that the bone marrow (BM) CD133(+) cells play an important role in the hematopoietic compartment, but this is not their only role. The cells indeed can take part in vascularExpand
