Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are capable of differentiation into multilineage cell types under certain induction conditions. Previous studies have demonstrated that physical environments and mechanical force can influence MSC fate, indicating that these factors may be favorable inducers for clinical treatment. Our previous study found that MSCs are spread(More)
Hantaviruses infect human endothelial cells (ECs) and are known to cause vascular-permeability-based diseases, including hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). The αvβ3 integrins, which are highly expressed on the surface of ECs, serve as hantavirus receptors. Specifically, the β3 integrin and vascular(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have a therapeutic potential to treat cardiovascular diseases. However, a significant barrier to MSC therapy is insufficient MSC engraftment in ischemic myocardium after systemic administration. Here, we investigated the modulatory effects of tanshinone IIA and astragaloside IV on the migration of MSCs and further defined the(More)
