Hematopoietic cells maintained for long periods on primary cultures of bone marrow stromal cells formed cobblestone colonies (Dexter's long-term bone marrow culture, LTBC). These stably maintained hematopoietic cells (for 4 months) were transferred to a coculture on an established spleen stromal cell line (MSS62), and maintained under stromal cell layer,(More)
A new primitive hematopoietic cell line (THS119), exhibiting Lin(-)/Sca-1(+)/c-Kit(+) a surface phenotype, grew and survived underneath stromal cells (TBR59). The ability of the THS119 cells to invade these stromal cell layers was dependent on the inclusion of serum in the culture medium. This was apparently due to a requirement for lipids contained in(More)
Human thioredoxin (TRX) is a multifunctional redox-active protein. We previously reported that the intraperitoneal administration of recombinant human thioredoxin (rhTRX) attenuates inflammatory cytokine- or bleomycin-induced lung injury in mice. In this study, the effect of rhTRX injected intravenously after lipopolysaccharide (LPS) injection was analyzed(More)
A novel primitive hematopoietic cell line, THS119, was established from lineage marker negative (Lin-)/Sca-1+ cells from bone marrow of temperature-sensitive (ts) SV40 T-antigen transgenic mice after lengthy passaging by coculture with TBR59 bone marrow stromal cells. THS119 cells exhibited immature primitive hematopoietic cells such as forming cobblestones(More)
