Inhibition of PDGF resulted in a significant reduction in mesangial cell proliferation, and largely prevented the increased deposition of extracellular matrix associated with the disease. This suggests that PDGF may have a central role in proliferative glomerular disease . To understand the mechanisms that control leaf size, we previously isolated a number of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants with altered leaf size. Because leaf morphogenesis depends on determinate cell proliferation,
The microenvironment encompasses all components of a tumor other than the cancer cells themselves. It is highly heterogenous, comprising a cellular component that includes immune cells, fibroblasts, adipocytes, and endothelial cells, and a non-cellular component, which is a meshwork of polymeric proteins and accessory molecules, termed the extracellular matrix (ECM) On the other hand, along this line of 3D cell culture, more recently Huch et al. and other teams showed the long-term expansion of adult human liver cells as 3D organoids culture 18,19,20. By. Primary cell culture in vitro suffers from cellular senescence. We hypothesized that expansion on decellularized extracellular matrix (dECM) deposited by simian virus 40 large T antigen (SV40LT) transduced autologous infrapatellar fat pad stem cells (IPFSCs) could rejuvenate high-passage IPFSCs in both proliferation and chondrogenic differentiation Here, we developed a new type of artificial ECM consisting of layered nano- and microfibers, which we termed fiber-on-fiber (FF) matrix (Fig. 1A and B).While microfiber matrices have too wide a diameter to interact with cells and show low cell stimulation , they display better mechanical stability and flexibility than nanofiber matrices.The FF matrix combines the advantages of both nano.
Niva Shapira, Ossie Sharon, in Encyclopedia of Cancer (Third Edition), 2019. Dietary effects on stem cell mutations. Obesity has been shown to promote stem cell expansion during cancer initiation, and to enhance the conversion of adipose-derived stem cells into carcinoma-associated fibroblasts, leading to cancer cell proliferation and progression to an invasive form Dermal fibroblasts are responsible from the production of extracellular matrix and take role in the closure of skin wounds. Dermal fibroblasts are major cells of origin in the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs) and are historically being used as feeder layer and biofiller in the restorative surgeries. ex vivo expansion of the dermal fibroblasts provides a suitable model to. .4X and 3.3X, respectively, while cell number increased by 9.2X and 5.5X, respectively. Since proliferation outpaces area expansion in long-term growth, average tissue density increased by the end of the experiment
The extracellular matrix (ECM) regulates cell behavior by influencing cell proliferation, survival, shape, migration and differentiation. Far from being a static structure, the ECM is constantly undergoing remodeling - i.e. assembly and degradation - particularly during the normal processes of development, differentiation and wound repair Large-scale expansion of highly functional adult human mesenchymal stem cells (aMSCs) remains technologically challenging as aMSCs lose self renewal capacity and multipotency during traditional long-term culture and their quality/quantity declines with donor age and disease. Identification of cultur
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is an intricate, three-dimensional network of macromolecules that provides structural and molecular support to establish an appropriate environment for cell growth, communication, and differentiation, ultimately aiding in tissue homeostasis [1,2,3,4].Its ability to complete these functions is regulated by changes in its composition and its bi-directional.
The expansion of mesangial matrix is one characteristic of diabetic nephropathy although it also involves other cells in interaction including podocytes and endothelial cells. Mesangial expansion occurs due to increased deposition of extracellular matrix proteins, for example fibronectin, into the mesangium Extracellular matrix proteins have primarily been designated as supporting scaffolds for cells. This work presents the soluble extracellular matrix component tropoelastin as a powerful proproliferative and cell-attractive molecule that surpasses the potency of conventional growth factors and matrix proteins used in a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) culture
Abstract Tumor-originated and undefined extracellular matrices (ECMs) such as Matrigel™ have been widely used in three-dimensional (3D) cell and tissue culture, but their use is unacceptable in clinical cell therapies. In this study, we proposed a 3D cellulose nanofiber (CNF) hydrogel that has great potential as a defined tissue-engineering scaffold, especially for osteoblast culture. The. Heart muscle contracts and relaxes in a regular rhythm to pump blood around the body. Soon after birth, the cells that form our heart muscle stop multiplying. As we grow, these cells increase in size and their internal skeleton—called myoskeleton—becomes more complex, to withstand the demands of pumping more blood. However, because the cells can no longer divide, the body is unable to. Large numbers of viable cells cannot be obtained from periodontal ligament tissues of patients with periodontitis. Therefore, it is imperative to establish an ex vivo environment that can support cell proliferation and delay senescence. Here, we have successfully reconstructed a native extracellular matrix (ECM), derived from early-passage human periodontal ligament cells (PDLCs) using the NH. The increase in cell number is achieved by a process called cell proliferation. A process in which a single cell divides, producing two identical daughter cells and thereby increasing the cell number. , where a single cell divides and produces two identical cells called daughter cells. Cellular specialization requires a different process called. Cell proliferation ECM (extracellular matrix) Mesenchymal stem cells abstract Large-scale expansion of highly functional adult human mesenchymal stem cells (aMSCs) remains technologically challenging as aMSCs lose self renewal capacity and multipotency during traditional long-term culture and their quality/quantity declines with donor age and.
Cellular proliferation is a critical component in biological systems. While normal cell proliferation keeps the body functioning, abnormal proliferation (such as in cancer) can be a target for therapy. Measuring how cells proliferate in response to a stimulus is a time-honored assay in science The minimal structural unit of a solid tumor is a single cell or a cellular compartment such as the nucleus. A closer look inside the cells reveals that there are functional comp 1 INTRODUCTION. Control of cell proliferation generally occurs during the first gap phase (G 1) of the eukaryotic cell division cycle (see Box 1).Multiple signals, ranging from growth factors to DNA damage to developmental cues, influence the decision to enter S phase, when DNA is replicated ().Hence, G 1 phase cell cycle control is intrinsically linked with a diverse set of pathways. Expansion of the mesangial matrix (production of components of the mesangial extracellular matrix) is a response to many injuries against glomeruli. Mesangial matrix expansion is also evidenced when there are pathologic deposits of proteins or circulating substances: fibrillary/immunotactoid glomerulopathy, amyloidosis, light and heavy chain. The new product - termed myMATRIX MSC - promotes adhesion, proliferation and high viability of hMSC. According to the manufacturer, this novel surface supports long-term expansion of hMSCs over 10 passages and more than 25 population doublings. Furthermore, myMATRIX MSC enables expansion of hMSC in both serum-free and xeno-free media.
Cells were analyzed for spreading area, proliferation, cell and nuclear shape, and c‐Jun expression. It was found that substrates with a stiffness of 8.67 kPa coated with laminin promoted the highest expression of c‐Jun, a marker signifying a regenerative SC The extracellular matrix of endothelial cells, also known as the perivascular matrix, forms a vascular niche that orchestrates processes required for tissue homeostasis and organ repair. This concise review describes which messages are sent by this perivascular matrix and how this knowledge can be used in the field of regenerative medicine Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and fibroblasts are two major seed cells for ligament tissue engineering. To understand the effects of mechanical stimulation on these cells and to develop effective approaches for cell therapy, it is necessary to investigate the biological effects of various mechanical loading conditions on cells. In this study, fibroblasts and MSCs were tested and compared under. itors) positive liver cells and induce their proliferation on long term, starting from liver tissue. A population of liver progenitors with high proliferative capacity emerged from this 3D culture.

Names below the different cell types are the markers of the specific cell types (based on recent human single-cell RNAseq studies [21, 24]).TP63, KRT5, KRT6C, KRT14 and KRT15 are basal cell.
. Here we develop a long-term culture system for adult murine keratinocytes that is genetically stable over time. Using an organoid-based approach, we establish a 3D culture of murine keratinocytes that resembles the interfollicular epidermis. Ability to support hiPSC health was assessed via measurement of cell area in the printed structure at day −13 as an indicator of cell viability and colony area at day 0 as an indicator of proliferation with continued cell health (Table; Figure 2B and 2C). We found that viability was relatively consistent across all formulations at day −13.
'The most distal cells undergo mitotic proliferation and serve as a stem-cell population.' 'The capillary grows by degradation of the extracellular matrix and proliferation of cells at the tip of the sprout.' 'The results suggested that reactivation of the silenced transgene occurs with cell proliferation.' Most metazoans have at least some ability to regenerate damaged cells and tissues, although the regenerative capacity varies depending on the species, organ, or developmental stage. Cell replacement and regeneration occur in two contexts: renewal of spent cells during tissue homeostasis (homeostatic growth), and in response to external injury, wounding, or amputation (epimorphic regeneration) Extracellular matrix (ECM) is a kind of connective tissue in the cell microenvironment, which is of great significance to tissue development. ECM in muscle fiber niche consists of three layers: the epimysium, the perimysium, and the endomysium (basal lamina). These three layers of connective tissue structure can not only maintain the morphology of skeletal muscle, but also play an important.
Abstract. Long term effects of morphine on mesangial cell proliferation and matrix synthesis. Since focal glomerulosclerosis is the predominant glomerular lesion in heroin nephropathy and since mesangial expansion is considered to be a precursor of glomerulosclerosis, we have evaluated the effect of opiates on mesangial cell (MC) proliferation and matrix synthesis Schwann cells (SCs) play a crucial role in the repair of peripheral nerves. This is due to their ability to proliferate, migrate, and provide trophic support to axon regrowth. During peripheral nerve injury, SCs de-differentiate and reprogram to gain the ability to repair nerves. Cysteine-rich 61 (Cyr61/CCN1) is a member of the CCN family of matrix cell proteins and have been reported to be. DAHP ameliorated mesangial matrix expansion and mesangial cell proliferation in diabetic nephropathy rats.

Human periodontal ligament stem cells (hPDLSCs) are one of the most promising types of seed cells in periodontal tissue regeneration. Suitable biomaterials are additional essential components that must cooperate with seed cells for in vivo expansion or in vitro implantation. Extracellular matrix (ECM) derived from mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) was recently reported to be a promising substrate. STEM CELLS Translational Medicine works to advance the utilization of cells for clinical therapy. By bridging stem cell molecular and biological research and helping speed translations of emerging lab discoveries into clinical trials, STEM CELLS Translational Medicine will help move applications of these critical investigations closer to accepted best patient practices and ultimately improve. Diabetes is characterized by high blood glucose level due to either autoimmune destruction of islet β-cells or insufficient insulin secretion or glucose non-responsive production of insulin by β-cells. It is highly desired to replace biological functional β-cells for the treatment of diabetes. Unfortunately, β-cells proliferate with an extremely low rate Feeder cell derivation and culture. The SDEC cell culture was derived from human embryonic germ cells as described .Briefly, cells were derived and maintained on a matrix of type I bovine collagen (10 μg/cm 2; Collaborative Biomedical Products) in EGM-2 MV medium (Clonetics) supplemented with 5% fetal bovine serum, hydrocortisone, human basic FGF, human vascular endothelial growth factor. Atherosclerosis is a pattern of the disease arteriosclerosis in which the wall of the artery develops abnormalities, called lesions.These lesions may lead to narrowing due to the buildup of atheromatous plaque. Initially, there are generally no symptoms. When severe, it can result in coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral artery disease, or kidney problems, depending on which arteries are.
Once the cell line is established, LN521 supports the robust, long-term, single-cell expansion of human pluripotent stem cells. Pluripotent stem cells grow as a monolayer on LN521 providing you with a homogenous, pluripotent cell culture without the need to dispose of unwanted differentiated cells A marked expansion of the connective tissue population and an abnormal deposition of extracellular matrix proteins are hallmarks of chronic and acute injuries to liver tissue. Liver connective tissue cells, also called stellate cells, derived from fibrotic liver have been thoroughly characterized and correspond phenotypically to myofibroblasts Objectives . Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are common disease in maxillofacial surgery. The aim of this study is to regenerate fibrocartilage with a mixture of TMJ fibrochondrocytes and periodontal ligament derived mesenchymal stem cells (PD-MSCs). Materials and Methods . Fibrochondrocytes and PD-MSC were cocultured (ratio 1 : 1) for 3 weeks
Results: Laminin 521 supported increased proliferation in early phases of expansion and was the only substrate facilitating high-level fusion following eight passages in mouse myoblast cell cultures. In human myoblast cell cultures, laminin 521 supported increased proliferation during expansion and superior differentiation with myotube hypertrophy In response to sFRP2, CFs exhibited robust cell proliferation associated with increased glucose consumption and lactate production, a phenomenon termed the Warburg effect in oncology. The coupling between CF expansion and anaerobic glycolysis is marked by upregulation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and tissue-nonspecific. On day 14, the lumen-containing spheroids matured into a mass of cells with strong cell-cell bonds (Figure 1). The cell proliferation assay shows that the cell number increase from 2000 cells/well to about 132,000 cells/well in 14 days, which is more than 60-fold expansion (Figure 3). The cells kept growing after 14 days stem cells expansion: influence of oxygen, culture medium and cell separation cord (UC) matrix has great potential, since there are no ethical limitations, risks for the donor or problems with Influence of glucose concentration on the short-term proliferation of the MSC: cell growth in high-glucose medium is inhibited under 21% oxygen Cartilage defects caused by injuries of the knee affect about 900,000 Americans annually, resulting in more than 200,000 surgical procedures. Cartilage repair remains a major challenge due to its limited healing capacity. Current cell-based therapy using autologous chondrocyte implantation has been developed for decades and promising results have been observed in clinic
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are somatic stem cells that can support life-long hematopoiesis. 1 They are characterized by the unique capacity to self-renew and differentiate into all blood cell lineages. In a steady state, most HSCs are quiescent in the G0 phase of the cell cycle, being recruited into the cycle intermittently with long intervals. 2,3 Once HSCs face hematopoietic demands. These genes are critical for cell proliferation and/or fusion, hence their inhibition promotes differentiation of precursor muscle cells . In this sense, Wang et al. have also shown that miR-34b represses the proliferation and promotes the differentiation of myoblasts by targeting insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 2 (IGFBP2) [ 64.
which mediate cell proliferation, differentiation and migration through transcriptional regulation. The down-stream cellular response is typically the expansion and remodelling of the micro-environment. For example, during wound repair, MAPK activation and signalling through downstream effector proteins- MAPK3(ERK1) andMAPK neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation is regulated by a complex interaction of cues including (i) soluble factors (growth factors and cytokines), (ii) insoluble factors (extracellular matrix) and (iii) cell-cell contacts in a specialized microenvironment known as the stem cell niche Restoring the number of glucose-responsive β-cells in patients living with diabetes is critical for achieving normoglycemia since functional β-cells are lost during the progression of both type 1 and 2 diabetes. Stem cell-derived β-cell replacement therapies offer an unprecedented opportunity to replace the lost β-cell mass, yet differentiation efficiencies and the final yield of insulin. Abstract. Recognizing the cell-instructive capacity of tissue-specific extracellular matrix (ECM) to direct cell attachment, proliferation and differentiation, there is a need for the development of in vitro cell culture models that reflect the complexity of the ECM to improve stem/progenitor cell expansion and lineage-commitment.This thesis focused on the development and characterization of.
Components and structure of the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix of the human body includes: Interstitial matrix : is the intercellular space, the space that remains between some cells and others within a tissue. It is occupied by a kind of aqueous gel of polysaccharides and fibrous proteins , together with other molecules dispersed in it, such as electrolytes, enzymes and. In vitro expansion of human mesenchymal stem cells: choice of serum Barria, E.; Mikels, A.; Haas, M. Maintenance and self-renewal of long term is a determinant of cell proliferation, differentiation, gene expression reconstituting hematopoietic stem cells supported by amniotic fluid The long-term expansion of keratinocytes under serum- and feeder free conditions generally results in diminished proliferation and an increased commitment to terminal differentiation. Here we present a serum and xenogeneic feeder free culture system that retains the self-renewal capacity of primary human keratinocytes. In vivo , the tissue microenvironment is a major contributor to determining. Diabetes is characterized by chronic hyperglycemia as a result of either loss or dysfunction of the insulin-producing β-cells.Diabetes is classified into two main types: type 1 diabetes (T1D) manifests as a result of the autoimmune destruction of β-cells, whereas type 2 diabetes (T2D) is caused by the dysfunction and loss of β-cells as a result of factors, such as insulin resistance and.
Mesenchymal stromal cells in the endosteal niche lining compact bone (CB-MSCs) represent a heterogeneous population, all of which contribute to bone repair and remodelling. Hyperglycaemia associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) can delay and impair the bone healing process. Therefore, this study investigated the influences of high (25 mM) glucose conditions on CB-MSC populations. An increase in cell proliferation of preadipocytes was associated with obesity, contradicting the previous results obtained by Nadler et al. . In contrast, ASCs harvested under hypoxia showed increased levels of growth factor VEGF, which, in turn, stimulated proliferation of adipocytes, improving the wound healing properties of ASCs
Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) belongs to a family of homologous, disulfide-linked, homodimeric proteins. These highly pleiotropic cytokines inhibit proliferation of most cells, but can promote the growth of mesenchymal cells and enhance extracellular matrix formation. The pivotal function of TGF-β1 in the immune system is to mediate immunosuppression and maintain tolerance by. Tendon-derived cell lines expressing tendon phenotype-related genes such as scleraxis, cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), and type I collagen (in addition to osteopontin and Runx2), were developed from transgenic mice. Bi et al. (2007) identified and characterized a unique cell population, termed tendon stem/progenitor cells, from mous cell - cell - Meiosis: A specialized division of chromosomes called meiosis occurs during the formation of the reproductive cells, or gametes, of sexually reproducing organisms. Gametes such as ova, sperm, and pollen begin as germ cells, which, like other types of cells, have two copies of each gene in their nuclei. The chromosomes composed of these matching genes are called homologs The long-term expansion of chondrocytes in culture and the resulting CPD has been shown to affect the chondrogenic potential of chondrocytes. 34-38 To that end, we examined the effect of CPD on GAG/DNA in NC and MFC microtissue pellets. The measured variables followed a normal distribution as assessed by Shapiro-Wilk test Robust, long-term expansion of high-quality human ES and iPS cells on LN521. The natural cell-matrix interaction triggers authentic biorelevant signals and gives homogenous and genetically stable PSC cultures with more uniformed gene expression. The cells migrate quickly on LN521, which correlates with the high survival of the cells
