Cellular Interactions in the Stem Cell Niche

The finding that endothelial cells in the neural stem cell niche secrete factors that influence neural stem cells to proliferate and become neurons is discussed.

Stem cells and their niche: a matter of fate

A brief review highlights some of the most important recent trends in stem cell biology, focusing in particular on the supportive microenvironments for both embryonic and adult stem cells.

Biology of stem cells: an overview

This review aims at presenting, to health professionals interested in this area, an overview on the biology of embryonic and adult stem cells, and their therapeutic potential.

Cell adhesion in regulation of asymmetric stem cell division.

Stem Cell Niche, the Microenvironment and Immunological Crosstalk

The concept of stem cells, their physiological existence, the intricate anatomical localization, the known and the unknown functions, and their exclusive utility for the purpose of regenerative

The role of the microenvironment on the fate of adult stem cells

The microenvironmental regulation of the behavior of SC is discussed and plasticity approaches by which various environmental factors can enhance the function of SCs and more effectively direct the fate ofSCs are focused on.

Engineering the Stem Cell Microenvironment

Novel methods of characterizing the effects of various environmental factors are described and new techniques that enable scientists and engineers to more effectively direct stem cell fate are reviewed.

The stem cell niche: theme and variations.

Epithelial Stem Cells and Their Niche: There's No Place Like Home

The purpose of this review is to compare how the cell signaling influences the stem cell and its niche in rapidly self‐renewing epithelia.



Defining the Epithelial Stem Cell Niche in Skin

It is found that these cells rarely divide within their niche but change properties abruptly when stimulated to exit, and their transcriptional profile is determined, which, when compared to progeny and other SCs, defines the niche.

Germline Stem Cells Anchored by Adherens Junctions in the Drosophila Ovary Niches

It is demonstrated that anchorage of GSCs in their niche by DE-cadherin–mediated adhesion is important for stem cell maintenance and function.

Empty niches can persist, signal incoming cells, and support ectopic proliferation in stem cell loss, and may underlie some disease states.

Stem cells in the skin: waste not, Wnt not.

Skin biologists have begun to identify some of the key steps involved in generating a functional tissue from multipotent stem cells, a major challenge over the next decade will be to identify the molecular signals that regulate stem cell self-renewal, proliferation, and differentiation.

Stem Cell Self-Renewal Specified by JAK-STAT Activation in Response to a Support Cell Cue

It is demonstrated that the apical hub cells in the Drosophila testis act as a cellular niche that supports stem cell self-renewal and continual maintenance of the germ line stem cell population.

Homing and mobilization in the stem cell niche.

A molecular profile of a hematopoietic stem cell niche

It is suggested that the AFT024 cell line represents a component of an in vivo stem cell niche, and this work undertook a functional genomics approach that combines extensive sequence mining of a subtracted cDNA library, high-density array hybridization and in-depth bioinformatic analyses.

A Stem Cell Molecular Signature

This work determined global gene expression profiles for mouse and human hematopoietic stem cells and other stages of the hematopolietic hierarchy, which define key conserved regulatory pathways in this developmental system.
