Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) arise from a variety of tissues, including bone marrow and adipose tissue and, accordingly, have the potential to differentiate into multiple cell types, including osteoblasts and adipocytes. Research on MSCs to date has demonstrated that a large number of transcription factors and ectocytic or intrastitial signaling pathways(More)
A phytochemical study of the invasive Eupatorium adenophorum indicated that the plant was rich in a phenolic compound o-coumaric acid (or 2-hydroxycoumaric acid). Biological investigations with the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and crop plants showed that o-coumaric acid strongly inhibited seed germination, plant growth and root elongation, reduced the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the value of free anterolateral thigh myocutaneous flap (ALTMF) and computed tomography angiography (CTA) for the reconstruction of mouth-floor defects after the resection of middle-late stage carcinoma of the mouth floor. METHODS Sixteen cases of middle-late stage carcinomas of the mouth floor underwent(More)
Cartilage tissue engineering is emerging as a therapeutic approach for the repair and regeneration of cartilage tissue defects resulting from trauma and disease. It is still essential to explore approaches that employ combinations of ideal seed cells, biomaterials, and growth factors to repair defect areas because cartilage lacks spontaneous regenerative(More)
