Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could be obtained from many sources, and there are differences between them. This study was purposed to compare and analyze the basic biological characteristics of umbilical cord, adipose tissue-and bone marrow-derived MSC (UC-MSCs, AD-MSCs and BM-MSCs). The MSCs were isolated from umbilical cord, adipose tissue and bone marrow(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the effects of rapamycin on biological function and autophagy of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC) from patients with aplastic anemia so as to provide experimental basis for the clinical treatment of aplastic anemia (AA) with rapamycin. BM-MSC were treated with different concentrations of rapamycin (0, 10, 50,(More)
15-Deoxy-Δ(12), 14-prostaglandin J2 (15d-PGJ2), a well known peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) γ ligand, has been shown to inhibit cellular proliferation and induce apoptosis and differentiation. However, whether 15d-PGJ2 influences the cytokines in the culture supernatant of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC) is unknown. This study(More)
BACKGROUND The Notch signaling pathway is implicated in a broad range of developmental processes, including cell fate decisions. This study was designed to determine the role of Notch signaling in adipogenic differentiation of human bone marrow derived MSCs (BM-MSCs). METHODS The Notch signaling was inhibited by the γ-secretase inhibitor(More)
This study was purposed to investigate the impact of human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSC) on the sensitivity of HL-60 cells to therapeutic drugs so as to provide more information for exploring the regulatory effect of hUC-MSC on leukemia cells. Transwell and direct co-culture systems of HL-60 and hUC-MSC were established. The(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have emerged as alternative sources of stem cells for regenerative medicine because of their multipotency and strong immune-regulatory properties. Also, human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) is an important mediator of MSC-mediated immunomodulation. However, it is unclear whether MSC retain their immune-privileged potential after(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have shown promise for use in cell therapy, and due to their tumor tropism can serve as vehicles for delivering therapeutic agents to tumor sites. Because interleukin-8 (IL-8) is known to mediate the protumor effect of MSCs, elimination of IL-8 secretion by MSCs may enhance their safety for use in cancer gene therapy. However,(More)
This study was aimed to explore the immunoregulatory function and capability supporting the angiogenesis of exosomes secreted by bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSC) from healthy persons. Supernatant of BMMSC (P4-P6) was collected for exosome purification. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Western blot were used to identify the quality of(More)
