    Multipotent somatic stem cells have been identified in various adult tissues. However, the stem/progenitor cells of the peripheral nerves have been isolated only from fetal tissues. Here, we isolated Schwann-cell precursors/immature Schwann cells from the injured peripheral nerves of adult mice...

    Background: Schwann cells (SC) which are myelin-forming cells in peripheral nervous system are very useful for the treatment of diseases of peripheral nervous system and central nervous system. However, it is difficult to obtain sufficient large number of SC for clinical use, so alternative cell...

    Sex-determining region Y (SRY)-box 2 (Sox2) is a member of the Sox family transcription factors. In the central nervous system, Sox2 is expressed in neural stem cells from neurogenic regions, and regulates stem cell proliferation and differentiation. In the peripheral nervous system, Sox2 is...

    Objective: To induce neural stem cell (NSC)-like cells derived from rat bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) into functional Schwann cell (SC)-like cells. Methods: In this study, rat BMSCs were cultured, identified and converted into NSC-like cells. NSC-like cells were then induced into SC-like...

    Schwann cell (SC) transplantation as a cell-based therapy can enhance peripheral and central nerve repair experimentally, but it is limited by the donor site morbidity for clinical application. We investigated weather respiratory mucosa stem cells (REMSCs), a kind of ectomesenchymal stem cells...

    Neural cortical cells, isolated from prenatal rat cerebra, were grown on surface-modified poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid, 65:35) (PLGA) films coated with poly-D-lysine (PDL) with either laminin (LN), fibronectin (FN) or collagen (CN). Immunocytochemistry showed that the isolated cells were highly...

    Schwann cells are important components of the peripheral glia that form myelin, serving as the microenvironment of nerve fibers in the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Damage to the PNS induces the differentiation and activation of Schwann cells to produce factors that strongly promote axonal...

    Low levels of survival of motor neuron (SMN) protein lead to spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The major pathological hallmark of SMA is a loss of lower motor neurons from spinal cord and peripheral nerve. However, recent studies have revealed pathological changes in other cells and tissues of the...

    Neurons in the adult mammalian CNS do not spontaneously regenerate axons after injury due to CNS myelin and other inhibitoryfactors. Previous studies have showed that inhibition of the Rho-ROCK pathway promotes axonal outgrowth in primary neurons or in spinal cord injury models. Furthermore,...

  • Damaged nerves could be repaired with fat cells. Liddle, Rachel // GP: General Practitioner;10/26/2007, p2 

    The article reports on British researchers' claim that peripheral nerve damage could be fixed by creating artificial nerves from fat cells. In a study in rats, the researchers were able to create Schwann cells from adipose-derived stem cells. When the artificial Schwann cells were cultured with...
