Concise Review: Emerging Role of CD44 in Cancer Stem Cells: A Promising Biomarker and Therapeutic Target
The reception and integration of the plethora of signals a cell receives from its microenvironment determines the cell's fate. CD44 functions as a receptor for hyaluronan and many other extracellularExpand

Exosomes derived from human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells alleviate liver fibrosis.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered as an attractive tool for the therapy of diseases. Exosomes excreted from MSCs can reduce myocardial ischemia/reperfusion damage and protect againstExpand

Exosomes derived from human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells promote tumor growth in vivo.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can promote tumor growth in a mouse xenograft model, but the exact mechanism remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the effects of bone marrow MSC-derivedExpand

Human Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cell Exosomes Enhance Angiogenesis Through the Wnt4/β‐Catenin Pathway
Human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hucMSCs) and their exosomes have been considered as potential therapeutic tools for tissue regeneration; however, the underlying mechanisms are still notExpand

hucMSC Exosome-Derived GPX1 Is Required for the Recovery of Hepatic Oxidant Injury.
Exosomes are small biological membrane vesicles secreted by various cells, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). We previously reported that MSC-derived exosomes (MSC-Ex) can elicitExpand

Gastric Cancer Exosomes Trigger Differentiation of Umbilical Cord Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Carcinoma-Associated Fibroblasts through TGF-β/Smad Pathway
Background Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) promote tumor growth by differentiating into carcinoma-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) and composing the tumor microenvironment. However, the mechanismsExpand

Exosomes released by human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells protect against cisplatin-induced renal oxidative stress and apoptosis in vivo and in vitro
IntroductionAdministration of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) or secreted microvesicles improves recovery from acute kidney injury (AKI). However, the potential roles and mechanisms are notExpand

5-Azacytidine induces cardiac differentiation of human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells by activating extracellular regulated kinase.
5-Azacytidine (5-Aza) induces differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) into cardiomyocytes. However, the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. Our previous work showed that 5-AzaExpand

Exosomes derived from human mesenchymal stem cells confer drug resistance in gastric cancer
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) play an important role in chemoresistance. Exosomes have been reported to modify cellular phenotype and function by mediating cell-cell communication. In this study, weExpand

Hepatocyte growth factor modification promotes the amelioration effects of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells on rat acute kidney injury.
Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hucMSCs) are particularly attractive cells for cellular and gene therapy in acute kidney injury (AKI). Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy has beenExpand
