Heat shock protein 60 affects behavioral improvement in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease grafted with human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell-derived dopaminergic-like neurons

Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is caused by a loss of dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons in mesencephalic substantia nigra (SN). Human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) are capable of self-renewal and differentiation into multiple cell lineages, including DAergic neurons. Thus, hUC-MSCs could be a promising… (More)
