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.
