BACKGROUND Kisspeptins (kp) activate a receptor coupled to a Gαq subunit (GPR54 or KiSS-1R) receptor to perform a variety of functions, including inhibition of cell motility, chemotaxis, and metastasis. In this study we have investigated whether kp-10, the most potent member of the kisspeptin family, can modulate CXCR4 (C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4)(More)
BACKGROUND There are significant limitations in repair of irrecoverable bone defects. Stem-cell therapy is a promising approach for the construction of bone tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been introduced as basic tools for bone tissue generation. Through MSCs, adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are more interesting. Since the similarity of(More)
BACKGROUND One of the challenges in lentiviral vector-based suicide gene therapy by toxin or apoptosis-inducing genes is death of packaging cells. Therefore, the process of production of these lentiviral particles would be stopped in this step. We proposed that insertion of a reverse promoter between R and U5 regions of 5' long terminal repeat (LTR) in(More)
Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) are attractive tools for cancer gene therapy due to their intrinsic tropism to the tumor environment. Interleukin-2 (IL2) is recognized as a key regulatory molecule, which enhances the activity and growth of the immune effector cell function. High-Dose IL2 Therapy is an option for treatment of malignant(More)
TRAIL and IFNγ are promising anti-cancer cytokines and it has been shown that IFNγ may sensitize cancer cells to TRAIL. Adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) are attractive vehicles for delivering anti-cancer agents. In this study, we evaluated the therapeutic potential of PhiC31 (φC31) recombinase and/or piggyBac transposase (pBt) modified ADSCs(More)
