BACKGROUND The small molecule 6-bromoindirubin-30-oxime (BIO), a glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) inhibitor, is a pharmacological agent known to maintain self-renewal in human and mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs). However, the precise role of GSK3 in immortalized pancreatic mesenchymal stem cells (iPMSCs) growth and survival is not completely understood(More)
Umbilical cord (UC) has been suggested as a new source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). In this report, we isolated MSCs from the fetal UC of goat and investigated their multipotency of differentiation into germ cells in vitro, in the presence of 0–20 % bovine follicular fluid (FF). The phenotypes, capacity of proliferation and expression of MSC markers(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) on the proliferation of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) and further explore the mechanism of PDGF in promoting the proliferation of UC-MSCs. The human UC-MSCs were treated with different concentrations of PDGF, and the effects were evaluated by(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that germ-like cells could be differentiated from human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) in vitro. Whether the sexuality of hUC-MSCs affects the formation efficiency of germ-like cells derived from hUC-MSCs is still unclear. To clearly test the formation efficiency of oocyte-like cells from male and female(More)
