Abstract This study is based on data analysis by light and transmission electron microscopy of the surgical cases in cerebral tumors, cerebrovascular malformations, thromboses in the carotid system, and other injuries such as perivascular hemorrhage. We examined cortical arteries and veins, perivascular areas with old hematic masses, vasculogenic foci, and broken large vessels. We identified, characterized, and compared both undifferentiated cells and well-differentiated cordocytes within…

Intercellular Communication by Extracellular Vesicles with Emphasis on the Roles of Cordocytes in the Human Brain. An Ultrastructural Study
This first study showed clearly that EVs can be important modulators of cell functions with roles in cell activation, differentiation, phenotypic change, cancer progression, from precursor/stem cells to tumoral phenotypes, because EVs are released en masse during key interactions and certain moments.
Concerted regulation of CD34 and CD105 accompanies mesenchymal stromal cell derivation from human adventitial stromal cell.
This study demonstrates that AdSC are more clonogenic AT-MSC progenitors than PC, and proposes a model describing how de novo acquisition of the typical MSC morphology by AdSC is accompanied by concerted regulation of surface marker expression upon in vitro culture.
Epigenetic aspects of telocytes/cordocytes: jacks of all trades, masters of most
It is proposed that T/Cs are capable of forming an extensive intercellular information transmission and executive system that may utilize electric currents, small molecules, exosomes and possibly electrical events within the cytoskeleton—to modulate homeostasis, stem cell activity, tissue repair, peristalsis, anticancer activity, and other complex functions in many organs.


From Pluripotent Stem Cells to Multifunctional Cordocytic Phenotypes in the Human Brain: An Ultrastructural Study
This work is an attempt to identify and characterize precursor/stem cells for cordocytic lineage in the perivascular areas, within periv vascular nerves and pia mater (now considered a cordocytics-vascular tissue).
Vascular wall resident progenitor cells: a source for postnatal vasculogenesis
The existence of a `vasculogenic zone' in the wall of adult human blood vessels, which may serve as a source for progenitor cells for postnatal vasculogenesis, contributing to tumor vascularization and local immune response is suggested.

This work demonstrates the co-existence of 2 separate perivascular MSC progenitors: pericytes in capillaries and microvessels and adventitial cells around larger vessels.
Vascular progenitor cells: origin and mechanisms of mobilization, differentiation, integration, and vasculogenesis.
The recent discovery of progenitor cells in peripheral blood that can differentiate into endothelial or vascular smooth muscle cells has led to the re-evaluation of many traditionally held beliefs
Adventitial Pericyte Progenitor/Mesenchymal Stem Cells Participate in the Restenotic Response to Arterial Injury
A population of resident adventitial pericyte-like cells or MSCs that contribute to restenosis following arterial injury are identified, different from myofibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and other progenitor populations that have been shown to participate in the restenotic process.
Isolation and Perivascular Localization of Mesenchymal Stem Cells From Mouse Brain
The authors' results indicate that cells similar to BM-MSCs exist in the brain and appear to be located within the vascular niche and may provide the mesenchymal elements of this niche.
Transplanted Stem Cell‐Secreted Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Effects Poststroke Recovery, Inflammation, and Vascular Repair
It is shown for the first time that after subacute transplantation into the ischemic brain of human central nervous system stem cells grown as neurospheres, the stem cell‐secreted factor, human vascular endothelial growth factor (hVEGF), is necessary for cell‐induced functional recovery.
