PDGF promoter driven amyloid precursor protein (PDAPP) transgenic mice were accompanied by age dependent amyloid β deposition and progressive spatial memory dysfunction which emerges within a few months of age. We conducted transplantation of neuronal precursors of cholinergic neuron phenotype which were derived from human iPS (hiPS) cells into bilateral(More)
Apoptosis plays a critical role in the development and homeostasis of tissues, especially those with high cell turnover such as the lymphoid system. We have examined the effects of thyroid hormones, TSH and TRH, on apoptosis of human T lymphocytes. We found that T lymphocytes cultured with T3 and T4, but not TSH nor TRH, in vitro showed enhanced apoptosis,(More)
Cholinergic neuronal loss is a common finding in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and AD model mice. We previously transplanted neurons derived from human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into the hippocampus of human amyloid precursor protein transgenic AD model mice. In the present study, we examined the cellular and molecular mechanisms(More)
Gut microbiota compositional alteration may have an association with immune dysfunction in patients with Behcet's disease (BD). We conducted a fecal metagenomic analysis of BD patients. We analyzed fecal microbiota obtained from 12 patients with BD and 12 normal individuals by sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA gene. We compared the relative abundance of(More)
<p>Transplantation of stem cells which differentiate into more mature neural cells brings about functional improvement in pre-clinical studies of stroke. Previous transplant approaches in diseased brain have utilized injection of the cells in a cell suspension. In addition, neural stem cells were preferentially used as graft. However, these cells had no(More)
