This paper focuses on the development of renewable sources of isletreplacement tissue for the treatment of type I diabetes mellitus. Placental tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a promising source for regenerative medicine due to their plasticity and easy availability. They have the potential to differentiate into insulin-producing cells.(More)
In spite of previous reports, the role of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) on cardiomyocyte differentiation, especially in the present autologous serum (AS) in culture medium, is still unclear. So, the purpose of this study was to investigate the potential of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (rBMSCs) to proliferate and differentiate towards(More)
OBJECTIVE(S) Leptin is a hormone secreted by adipose tissue and is involved not only in the regulation of feeding and energy expenditure, but also its role in memory enhancement has been demonstrated as well. The partial transfer of leptin across the blood-brain barrier in obese individuals causes leptin resistance and prevents leptin reaching brain. On the(More)
