Magnetic resonance (MR) tracking of magnetically labeled stem and progenitor cells is an emerging technology, leading to an urgent need for magnetic probes that can make cells highly magnetic during their normal expansion in culture. We have developed magnetodendrimers as a versatile class of magnetic tags that can efficiently label mammalian cells, including human neural stem cells (NSCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), through a nonspecific membrane adsorption process with subsequent…

Highly efficient endosomal labeling of progenitor and stem cells with large magnetic particles allows magnetic resonance imaging of single cells.
TLDR
A new application of much larger, micron-scale, iron oxide magnetic particles with enhanced MR susceptibility, which enables detection of single cells at resolutions that can be achieved in vivo, appears to be a promising tool for serial noninvasive monitoring of in vivo cell homing and localization using MRI.
Instant MR labeling of stem cells using magnetoelectroporation
TLDR
While MEP was harmful at higher voltages or pulse durations, the procedure could be properly calibrated using a pulse of 130 V and 17 ms, and may be ideally suitable for bedside implementation.
Magnetoelectroporation: improved labeling of neural stem cells and leukocytes for cellular magnetic resonance imaging using a single FDA-approved agent.
Development of a Magnetosonoporation-Enhanced Stem Cell Labeling Technique
TLDR
This work attempted to develop an alternative instant cell labeling technique, using ultrasound to facilitate MR-labeling of cells, called magneto-sonoporation (MSP), which is based on the fact that ultrasound can increase cell membrane permeability to external molecules.

TLDR
Methods have now been developed that make it possible to incorporate sufficient amounts of superparamagnetic iron oxide into cells, enabling their detection in vivo using MR imaging, and it is anticipated that this technique may ultimately become an important tool for monitoring the efficacy of clinical (stem) cell transplantation protocols.

TLDR
It is shown that HVJ-E is a more efficient vehicle of cell transfection using quantitative evaluation and that the iron content per cell can be predicted using a simple, automated image analysis of stained, labeled cells.

Efficient In Vitro Labeling of Human Neural Precursor Cells with Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Particles: Relevance for In Vivo Cell Tracking
TLDR
This study describes a simple protocol to label NPCs of human origin using SPIOs at optimized low dosages and demonstrates the feasibility of noninvasive imaging of labeled cells after transplantation in the brain and evidentiates potential limitations of the technique that have to be considered, particularly in the perspective of neural cell‐based clinical applications.

TLDR
The present results demonstrate that magnetic resonance tracking of transplanted oligodendrocyte progenitors is feasible and has the potential to be easily extended to other neurotransplantation studies involving different precursor cell types.
High-efficiency intracellular magnetic labeling with novel superparamagnetic-Tat peptide conjugates.
TLDR
A biocompatible, dextran coated superparamagnetic iron oxide particle was derivatized with a peptide sequence from the HIV-tat protein to improve intracellular magnetic labeling of different target cells, and internalized into lymphocytes over 100-fold more efficiently than nonmodified particles.

Generation of oligodendroglial progenitors from neural stem cells
TLDR
The progression of stem cells to oligodendroglial progenitors is likely induced by factors in B104CM, and characterization of their expression of early markers, cell cycle, migration, and self-renewal suggests that they were pre-O2A progenitor.

TLDR
The large temperature dependence suggests that the dominant mechanism of relaxation is the contact interaction effect, with the proton residence time as the primary time constant, and this largely unexplored relaxation mechanism has the potential to create a new class of T2-selective contrast agents.
