    Purpose: There is increasing interest in the development of cell therapy as a possible approach for the treatment of degenerative disc disease. To regenerate nucleus pulposus tissue, the cells must produce an appropriate proteoglycan-rich matrix, as this is essential for the functioning of the...

  • An Experimental Study on Bovine Nucleus Pulposus Cells Labelled with PKH26 in Vitro. DING Xiaoming; XU Baoshan; WU Yaohong; XU Haiwei; YANG Qiang; MA Xinlong; ZHANG Chunqiu; LI Xiulan; ZHANG Yang // Tianjin Medical Journal;Sep2014, Vol. 42 Issue 9, p849 

    Objective To investigate the application of PKH26 fluorescent labeling on nucleus pulposus cells isolated from bovine coccyx disc, and to provide nucleus pulposus tissue engineering with traceable nucleus pulposus cells by PKH26 fluorescence labelling. Methods Nucleus pulposus primary cells were...

    Attempts to study the biology of the nucleus pulposus have been limited in scope due to the low rates of cell proliferation, difficulties in maintaining viable disc cells in culture and the absence of a clearly defined phenotype. The major objective of this communication is to construct a...

  • Resveratrol Induces Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Differentiation through Stimulation of SirT1 and AMPK. Thompson, Anne Marie; Martin, Kathleen A.; Rzucidlo, Eva M. // PLoS ONE;Jan2014, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p1 

    Phenotypic plasticity in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) is necessary for vessel maintenance, repair and adaptation to vascular changes associated with aging. De-differentiated VSMC contribute to pathologies including atherosclerosis and intimal hyperplasia. As resveratrol has been reported...

  • MicroRNA-10b Promotes Nucleus Pulposus Cell Proliferation through RhoC-Akt Pathway by Targeting HOXD10 in Intervetebral Disc Degeneration. Yu, Xin; Li, Zheng; Shen, Jianxiong; Wu, William K. K.; Liang, Jinqian; Weng, Xisheng; Qiu, Guixing // PLoS ONE;Dec2013, Vol. 8 Issue 12, p1 

    Aberrant proliferation of nucleus pulposus cell is implicated in the pathogenesis of intervertebral disc degeneration. Recent findings revealed that microRNAs, a class of small noncoding RNAs, could regulate cell proliferation in many pathological conditions. Here, we showed that miR-10b was...
