Abstract Transfusion of platelet concentrates represents an important treatment for various bleeding complications. However, the short half-life and frequent contaminations with bacteria restrict the availability of platelet concentrates and raise a clear demand for platelets generated ex vivo. Therefore, in vitro platelet generation from megakaryocytes represents an important research topic. A vital step for this process represents accurate analysis of thrombopoiesis and proplatelet formation… Expand

Ibrutinib Suppresses Early Megakaryopoiesis but Enhances Proplatelet Formation.
Ibrutinib, an irreversible inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase, has a favorable safety profile in patients with B cell-related malignancies. A primary adverse effect of ibrutinib isExpand
Mitochondrial dynamics and reactive oxygen species initiate thrombopoiesis from mature megakaryocytes.
TLDR
It is shown that initiation of thrombopoiesis from human mature MKs was enhanced under hyperoxia or during pro-oxidant treatments, whereas antioxidants dampened it, demonstrating a functional coupling between ROS and mitochondrial fission in MKs, which is crucial for the onset of throttle. Expand
Automated image analysis of stained cytospins to quantify Schwann cell purity and proliferation
TLDR
It is shown that rat SC culture derived cytospins stained for SC marker SOX10, proliferation marker EdU, intermediate filament vimentin and DAPI allowed the determination of SC identity and proliferation by requiring only a small number of cells. Expand
Megakaryocyte Images Segmentation Using Wavelet Transform and Modified Fuzzy C-means Techniques
TLDR
The proposed state of art technique for the automatic segmentation for megakaryocyte structure image exhibits remarkably high level of accuracy compared with Otsu’s segmentation method in the case of detection nucleus and cytoplasm. Expand

TLDR
The data indicate a crucial role of platelet PI3K signaling for leukocyte extravasation upon inflammatory stimuli in various diseases models. Expand
High‐content, label‐free analysis of proplatelet production from megakaryocytes
The mechanisms that regulate platelet biogenesis remain unclear; factors that trigger megakaryocytes (MKs) to initiate platelet production are poorly understood. Platelet formation begins withExpand

Interpreting the developmental dance of the megakaryocyte: a review of the cellular and molecular processes mediating platelet formation
TLDR
This review will highlight recent studies on thrombopoeitin‐dependent megakaryocyte maturation, endomitosis and granule formation, cytoskeletal contributions to proplatelet formation, the role of apoptosis, and terminal platelet formation and release. Expand
Understanding platelet generation from megakaryocytes: implications for in vitro-derived platelets.
TLDR
The understanding of committed megakaryocytes and platelet release in vivo and in vitro, and how this knowledge can guide the development of in vitro-derived platelets for clinical application are focused on. Expand
Label free monitoring of megakaryocytic development and proplatelet formation in vitro.
TLDR
It is shown that automated image analysis algorithms applied to two-photon excited fluorescence images can non-invasively monitor structural and metabolic megakaryocyte behavior changes occurring during differentiation and platelet formation in vitro. Expand
Regulation of proplatelet formation and platelet release by integrin αIIbβ3
TLDR
It is demonstrated that fibrinogen is able to regulate proplatelet formation via integrin αIIbβ3, and is localized to the bone marrow sinusoids, a location that would allow it to readily influence platelet release. Expand
Dasatinib enhances megakaryocyte differentiation but inhibits platelet formation.
TLDR
It is proposed that dasatinib causesThrombocytopenia as a consequence of ineffective thrombopoiesis, promoting MK differentiation but also impairing MK migration and proplatelet formation. Expand
Intrinsic impaired proplatelet formation and microtubule coil assembly of megakaryocytes in a mouse model of Bernard-Soulier syndrome
TLDR
Findings point to a role of the GPIb-V-IX complex intrinsic to megakaryocytes at the stage of proplatelet formation and suggest a functional link with the underlying microtubular cytoskeleton in platelet biogenesis. Expand
Outside-In Signalling Generated by a Constitutively Activated Integrin αIIbβ3 Impairs Proplatelet Formation in Human Megakaryocytes
TLDR
The data show that constitutive activation of αIIbβ3-mediated outside-in signalling in human megakaryocytes negatively influences proplatelet formation, leading to macrothombocytopenia. Expand
Adhesive receptors, extracellular proteins and myosin IIA orchestrate proplatelet formation by human megakaryocytes
TLDR
The findings show that proplatelet formation in human megakaryocytes undergoes a complex spatio‐temporal regulation orchestrated by adhesive proteins, GPIb‐IX‐V and myosin IIA. Expand
In vitro generation of platelets: Where do we stand?
TLDR
The overall goal is to identify innovative instruments to study mechanisms of platelet release, diseases related to platelet production and new therapeutic targets starting from human progenitor cells. Expand
Regulation of proplatelet formation and platelet release by integrin alpha IIb beta3.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that fibrinogen is able to regulate proplatelet formation via integrin alpha IIb beta3, and is localized to the bone marrow sinusoids, a location that would allow it to readily influence platelet release. Expand
