Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent an adherent, fibroblast-like population present not only in the bone marrow, but in a number of tissues, including blood, adipose tissue, muscle, and dermis. Their extensive proliferation and transdifferentiation potential makes them best suited for tissue engineering applications. Identification of growth factors and(More)
CD34 is highly glycosylated surface antigen of enormous clinical utility in the identification, enumeration, and purification of engraftable lymphohematopoietic progenitors for transplantation. However, recently its importance in the specific marking of most immature hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells have been questioned by addressing long-term(More)
During normal haematopoiesis, cell development and differentiation programs are accomplished by switching 'on' and 'off' specific set of genes. Specificity of gene expression is primarily achieved by combinatorial control, i.e. through physical and functional interactions among several transcription factors that form sequence-specific multiprotein complexes(More)
PU.1 is a versatile hematopoietic cell-specific ETS-family transcriptional regulator required for the development of both the inborn and the adaptive immunity, owing to its potential ability to regulate the expression of multiple genes specific for different lineages during normal hematopoiesis. It functions in a cell-autonomous manner to control the(More)
Major nuclear envelope abnormalities, such as disruption and/or presence of intranuclear organelles, have rarely been described in cardiomyocytes from dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) patients. In this study, we screened a series of 25 unrelated DCM patient samples for (a) cardiomyocyte nuclear abnormalities and (b) mutations in LMNA and TMPO as they are two(More)
The sequence of Bcl-2 homology domains, BH1 and BH2, is known to be conserved among anti- and pro-apoptotic members of Bcl-2 family proteins. But structural conservation of these domains with respect to functionally active residues playing role in heterodimerization-mediated regulation of apoptosis has never been elucidated. Here, we have suggested the(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), adherent fibroblastoid cells, present in bone marrow and many other tissues can be easily isolated and expanded in vitro. They are capable of differentiating into different cell types such as osteoblasts, chondrocytes, adipocytes, cardiomyocytes, hepatocytes, endothelial cells and neuronal cells. Such immense plasticity(More)
Mutations in the lamin A/C gene are involved in multiple human disorders for which the pathophysiological mechanisms are partially understood. Conflicting results prevail regarding the organization of lamin A and C mutants within the nuclear envelope (NE) and on the interactions of each lamin to its counterpart. We over-expressed various lamin A and C(More)
The objective of the present study was to develop a thermosensitive in situ gel system based on chitosan and poly vinyl alcohol (PVA) for nasal delivery of insulin. The hydrogel was prepared by mixing chitosan and PVA. The concentration of the components was optimized during formulation development. The prepared hydrogel was characterized for gelation(More)
Stem cell therapy hold the potential to meet the demand for transplant cells/tissues needed for treating damages resulting from both natural and man-made disasters. Pluripotency makes embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells ideal for use, but their teratogenic character is a major hindrance. Therapeutic benefits of bone marrow(More)
