The article focuses on a study on the promotion of the differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) into neural cells by cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART). It describes the study on mouse in which MSCs from bone marrow were isolated and identified, co-cultured with CART, and immunofluorescence analysis was done on differentiated BM-MSCs. The study showed that CART can promote the differentiation of BM-MSCs into neural cells.

    Background: Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a population of multipotent progenitors which have the capacity of proliferation and differentiation into mesenchymal lineage cells. Hypoxia could promote the proliferation of MSCs. Micro-RNAs are endogenous RNAs that can play an...

    Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a pleiotropic lipid mediator that acts through G protein-coupled receptors (LPA1-6). Although several biological roles of LPA4 are becoming apparent, its role in hematopoiesis has remained unknown. Here, we show a novel regulatory role for LPA4 in hematopoiesis....

    Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are rare, multipotent cells that generate via progenitor and precursor cells of all blood lineages. Similar to normal hematopoiesis, leukemia is also hierarchically organized and a subpopulation of leukemic cells, the leukemic stem cells (LSCs), is responsible for...
