We investigated by transmission and scanning election microscopy the interface between the epithelium and lamina propria in the rat urinary bladder. A digestion technique that dissolves the basal laminae and collagen fibrils was effective in cleaving the mucosa at this level; the specimens were then prepared for scanning electron microscopy, thus(More)
Bone marrow derived human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have attracted great interest from both bench and clinical researchers because of their pluripotency and ease of expansion ex vivo. However, these cells do finally reach a senescent stage and lose their multipotent potential. Proliferation of these cells is limited up to the time of their senescence,(More)
To date, there has been no study on the development of novel regimens based on the following tissue engineering principles: seeding and culturing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on a scaffold before surgery or injecting cultured MSCs into a scaffold during surgery. The purpose of this study was to assess the in vivo osteogenic ability of scaffold/MSCs(More)
The effect on the adhesion of endothelial cells of immobilization of adhesion proteins onto a microporous polypropylene hollow fiber membrane for a conventional artificial lung was investigated with the aim of constructing a hybrid artificial lung bearing endothelial cells on the modified membrane. The membrane was modified by adsorption or covalent bonding(More)
This report introduces practical techniques and applications of complementary scanning electron microscopy (SEM). To identify the complementary structures at high magnification, we first made a montage pair of low magnification micrographs as a guide map. Consulting the map, we took complementary micrographs at high magnification. When taking a picture at(More)
