STUDY DESIGN Human stromal stem cells derived from menstrual blood (MenSCs) and nucleus pulposus (NP) cells were cocultured under normal or low oxygen (O2) condition. OBJECTIVE To assess the differentiation capability of MenSCs toward nucleus pulposus cells under normal or low oxygen condition. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Given the proliferative capacity(More)
Most plant disease-resistance genes (R-genes) isolated so far encode proteins with a nucleotide binding site (NBS) domain and belong to a superfamily. NBS domains related to R-genes show a highly conserved backbone of an amino acid motif, which makes it possible to isolate resistance gene analogues (RGAs) by degenerate primers. Degenerate primers based on(More)
OBJECTIVES Tissue engineering is a promising approach for repair of tendon injuries. Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSCs) have gained increasing research interest for their potential in improving healing and regeneration of injured tendons. The present study aimed to investigate effects of O2 tension and potential signalling pathways on AMDSC(More)
BACKGROUND Hypoxic conditions play roles in functioning of human tendon-derived stem cells (hTSCs). The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of various hypoxic conditions in self-renewal capacity and differentiation of TSCs. MATERIAL AND METHODS hTSCs was obtain from supraspinatus tendon donors. Colony formation and cell proliferation assay were(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the research progress of different ways of stem cells generation and cells dedifferentiation induced by reversine. METHODS The papers related to reversine inducing cells dedifferentiation and stem cells generation were reviewed. RESULTS To obtain stem cells, there are always some disadvantages via somatic cell nuclear transfer or(More)
This study was to compare differentiation potential of bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) and adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) from Sprague-Dawley rats towards annulus fibrosus (AF)-like cells. Using coculture plates with 0.4μm pore size polyethylene terephthalate (PET) track-etched inserts (Corning,USA), MSCs and AF cells were cocultured with direct(More)
Achilles tendons have a very poor capacity for intrinsic regeneration. The cell-based treatment strategy for Achilles tendinitis includes the application of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which have high proliferative and multipotent differentiation ability, and is a promising approach. The aim of the present study was to explore the tenogenic potential of(More)
A routing scheme of wireless sensor networks which is suitable for mine monitoring system is designed in this paper. Consideration of the topographic features of coal mine, two-level network is adopted. We design a semi-proactive routing protocol based on tree topology. Isolated nodes in the network send routing requests to neighbor nodes with least path(More)
