The role of embryonal or adult stem cells, in particular bone marrow (BM)-derived stem cells, in regenerating the kidney after injury has been the subject of intensive investigation. BM-derived stem cells have been shown to give rise to small numbers of most renal cell types, including tubular cells, mesangial cells, podocytes, vascular cells and interstitial cells. However, the role this infrequent display of BM cell plasticity plays in organ regeneration is less certain. Injections of BM… CONTINUE READING
