Mesenchymal stem cell-conditioned medium (MSC-CM) has been shown to have protective effects against various cellular-injury models. This mechanism of protection, however, has yet to be elucidated. Recently, exosomes were identified as the active component in MSC-CM. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of MSC-derived exosomes in an established(More)
The present investigation was carried out to study the possible effects of quinacrine in modulating cytoplasmic phospholipase A(2) (cPLA(2)) mRNA levels in rat hippocampus after kainate treatment. Injections of kainate into the right lateral ventricle resulted in significant increases in cPLA(2) mRNA levels in the hippocampus, at 3 days and 7 days after(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously derived highly similar lineage-restricted stem cell lines, RoSH and E-RoSH cell lines from mouse embryos and CD9hi SSEA-1- differentiated mouse embryonic stem cells, respectively. These cell lines are not pluripotent and differentiate readily into endothelial cells in vitro and in vivo. RESULTS We investigated the signaling(More)
BACKGROUND Differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) into specific cell types with minimal risk of teratoma formation could be efficiently directed by first reducing the differentiation potential of ESCs through the generation of clonal, self-renewing lineage-restricted stem cell lines. Efforts to isolate these stem cells are, however, mired in an(More)
