Retinal progenitor cells (RPCs) are an excellent resource for retinal replacement therapy, because they show enormous potential to differentiate into retinal-specific cell types. While the differentiating influence of serum has long been appreciated, the effects of serum concentration on RPC differentiation into specified retinal neural cells have not been(More)
During retina development, retinal progenitor cell (RPC) proliferation and differentiation are regulated by complex inter- and intracellular interactions. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) are reported to express a variety of cytokines and neurotrophic factors, which have powerful trophic and protective functions for neural tissue-derived cells.(More)
Retinal progenitor cells (RPCs) show enormous potential for the treatment of retinal degenerative diseases. It is well known that in vitro cultures of RPCs comprise suspension spheres and adherent cells, but the differences between the two cell populations are not fully understood. In this study, cultured RPCs were sorted into suspension and adherent cells.(More)
