Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stem cells that can generate various microenvironment components in bone marrow, ensuring a precise control over self-renewal and multilineage differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells. Nevertheless, their spatiotemporal correlation with embryonic hematopoiesis remains rudimentary, particularly in relation to(More)
Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) loaded bio-scaffold transplantation is a promising therapeutic approach for bone regeneration and repair. However, growing evidence shows that pro-inflammatory mediators from injured tissues suppress osteogenic differentiation and impair bone formation. To improve MSC-based bone regeneration, it is important to understand the(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are characterized by their hematopoiesis-supporting and immunosuppressive capacity, while osteoclasts are main cell components in the endosteal hematopoietic stem cell niche and pivotal players in osteoimmunology. To clarify the association of these 2 kinds of cells, mouse CD11b(+) monocytes were cultured onto MSC layers in the(More)
This study was designed to investigate the role of experimental febrile seizures in the induction of generalized clonic seizures and the involvement of heat-sensitive channel TRPV1. Pentylenetetrazol-induced clonic seizure was used as the seizure model, and Trpv1 gene knock-out and wild-type C57/BL6 mice were used as experimental subjects.(More)
This study was aimed to explore the molecular mechanism of the regulatory effects of ICAM-1 on the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) to adipocytes. The murine MSC cell line C3H10T 1/2 was treated with the supernatants contained plasmid MIGR1-ICAM-1 and MIGR1-ICAM-1/MSC (high expression of ICAM-1), the activation of the pathway was detected by(More)
This study was purposed to establish a convenient and efficient method for isolating and culturing mouse bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). The femurs and tibias of mouse were taken under sterile condition. MSC were isolated and cultured with flushing- out bone marrow or collagenase-digested bone fragment or bone marrow plus bone fragment. MSC colony(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent powerful tools for regenerative medicine for their differentiation and migration capacity. However, ontogeny and migration of MSCs in mammalian mid-gestation conceptus is poorly understood. We identified canonical MSCs in the mouse embryonic day (E) 11.5 dorsal aorta (DA). They possessed homogenous immunophenotype(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The postoperative survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is mainly determined by clinical pathologic stage. However, recurrence is not rare in stage I NSCLC patients. This study was to explore whether conventional pathologic stages of some NSCLC were underestimated. METHODS A total of 195 lymph nodes were(More)
The poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) bio-scaffold is a biodegradable scaffold commonly used for tissue repair. However, implanted PLGA scaffolds usually cause serious inflammatory responses around grafts. To improve PLGA scaffold-based tissue repair, it is important to control the PLGA-mediated inflammatory responses. Recent evidence indicated that PLGA(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the effect of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) on the migration in vitro of the murine mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and its related mechanisms. The migration ability of murine MSC (C3H10T1/2), ICAM-1 transfected MSC (C3H10T1/2-MIGR1-ICAM-1) and empty vector-transfected MSC (C3H10T 1/2-MIGR1) were assayed in(More)
