Stem cells improve damage in other cells by exporting mitochondria

Stem cells improve damage in other cells by exporting mitochondria | What's happening today in the world of Regenerative Medicine | Scoop.it

A research team has identified a protein that increases the transfer of mitochondria from mesenchymal stem cells to lung cells. In work published in The EMBO Journal, the researchers reveal that the delivery of mitochondria to human lung cells can rejuvenate damaged cells. The migration of mitochondria from stem cells to epithelial cells also helps to repair tissue damage and inflammation linked to asthma-like symptoms in mice.

New mechanism or action was proposed for stem cell therapy for lung inflammation and injury.  Transfer of mitochondria from MSCs to lung epithelial cells, which is mediated by the protein Miro1.

Researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a novel process for efficient culturing of human pluripotent stem cells and for neuronal differentiation of these cells. First, they developed a mixture compound that allows the culturing of pluripotent stem cells in the absence of mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEF). Another compound allows high efficient differentiation of these cells towards a neuonal fate. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/stem.1622/abstract

Autologous transplantation of the iPS-derived neural cells was found to produce minimal immune response, in contrast to allogeneic transplantation, which provoked immune reaction by microglia and lymphocytes. Thus, higher number of dopaminergic neurons survived in the autografts.

Stem cell therapy shows promise in repairing brain damage even hours after stroke occurs

Stem cell therapy shows promise in repairing brain damage even hours after stroke occurs | What's happening today in the world of Regenerative Medicine | Scoop.it

"...a new study released today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine indicates that endothelial precursor cells, which are found in the bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, and as very rare cells in peripheral blood, could make a significant difference for these patients’ recovery — even in the later stages of stroke. In animal studies, the treatment minimized the initial brain injury and helped repair the stroke damage."

This study assessed the effect of human umbilical cord blood-derived CD133+ endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) on stroke development and resolution in rats. The resultes demonstrated that  transplanted cells had selectively migrated to the injured area and stopped the tissue damage from spreading, instigated regeneration, and also affected the time course for stroke resolution. A significant decrease in lesion size  was observed, as early as 7 days after the stroke’s onset.
