Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.
Mitogenic peptide growth hormone carried in the alpha-granules of platelets. It is released when platelets adhere to traumatized tissues. Connective tissue cells near the traumatized region respond by initiating the process of replication.
A polypeptide substance comprising about one third of the total protein in mammalian organisms. It is the main constituent of SKIN; CONNECTIVE TISSUE; and the organic substance of bones (BONE AND BONES) and teeth (TOOTH).

Cells propagated in vitro in special media conducive to their growth. Cultured cells are used to study developmental, morphologic, metabolic, physiologic, and genetic processes, among others.
A syndrome with overlapping clinical features of systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, polymyositis, and Raynaud's phenomenon. The disease is differentially characterized by high serum titers of antibodies to ribonuclease-sensitive extractable (saline soluble) nuclear antigen and a "speckled" epidermal nuclear staining pattern on direct immunofluorescence.
Histochemical localization of immunoreactive substances using labeled antibodies as reagents.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A vascular connective tissue formed on the surface of a healing wound, ulcer, or inflamed tissue. It consists of new capillaries and an infiltrate containing lymphoid cells, macrophages, and plasma cells.
Proteins that are coded by immediate-early genes, in the absence of de novo protein synthesis. The term was originally used exclusively for viral regulatory proteins that were synthesized just after viral integration into the host cell. It is also used to describe cellular proteins which are synthesized immediately after the resting cell is stimulated by extracellular signals.
Regulatory proteins and peptides that are signaling molecules involved in the process of PARACRINE COMMUNICATION. They are generally considered factors that are expressed by one cell and are responded to by receptors on another nearby cell. They are distinguished from HORMONES in that their actions are local rather than distal.

Insulin regulation of amino acid transport in mesenchymal cells from avian and mammalian tissues. (1/275)

Insulin regulation of amino acid transport across the cell membrane was studied in a variety of mesenchymal cell directly isolated from avian and mammalian tissues or collected from confluent cultures. Transport activity of the principal systems of mediation in the presence and absence of insulin was evaluated by measuring the uptake of representative amino acids under conditions approaching initial entry rates. Insulin enhanced the transport rate of substrate amino acids from the A system(alpha-aminoisobutyric acid, L-proline, glycine, L-alanine and L-serine) in fibroblasts and osteoblasts from chick-embryo tissues, in mesenchymal cells (fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells) from immature rat uterus, in thymic lymphocytes from young rats and in chick-embryo fibroblasts from confluent secondary cultures. In these tissues, the uptake of amino acid substrates of transport systems L and Ly+ (L-leucine, L-phenylalanine, L-lysine) was not affected by the presence of the hormone. No insulin control of amino acid transport was detected in chick-embryo chondroblasts and rat peritoneal macrophages. These observations identify the occurrence of hormonal regulatory patterns of amino acid transport for different mesenchymal cells types and indicate that these properties emerge early during cell differentiation.  (+info)

Role of matrix metalloproteinases and their tissue inhibitors in the regulation of coronary cell migration. (2/275)

The migration of vascular cells is regulated by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs). Because the activation of adventitial fibroblasts has been implicated in coronary repair, we have examined regional differences in cell outgrowth and the synthesis of MMPs/TIMPs in different layers of porcine coronary arteries. Coronary medial explants demonstrated significantly slower cell outgrowth than coronary adventitia in culture (P<0.001). These observations were paralleled by the predominant expression of TIMP-1 and -2 in the media (14-fold and 37-fold higher than in adventitia, respectively, P<0.001), whereas higher gelatinolytic activities (MMP-2 and -9) were released from adventitial explants. Smooth muscle cell outgrowth from the media was regulated by endogenous TIMPs, since TIMP inhibition (recombinant MMP-2 or neutralizing anti-TIMP antibodies) facilitated cell outgrowth (P<0.001). In contrast, the addition of recombinant TIMP-1 or -2 decreased adventitial cell outgrowth. In the coculture experiments, the presence of coronary media retarded adventitial cell outgrowth, whereas medial damage abrogated these effects, allowing for fibroblast migration (P<0.001). In conclusion, this study demonstrated differential migratory properties and distinct MMP/TIMP synthesis by coronary fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells. Endogenous TIMPs in the media may play an important role in maintaining coronary arterial wall homeostasis, whereas high levels of matrix-degrading activities confer the "invasive" characteristics of adventitial fibroblasts.  (+info)

Selective antibody blockade of lymphocyte migration to mucosal sites and mast cell adhesion. (3/275)

The integrins alpha4beta7 and alpha4beta1 mediate adhesion to the mucosal addressin cell adhesion molecule-1 (MAdCAM-1) and the vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and are important in T cell and allergic inflammatory reactions in the rat. The relative contributions of alpha4beta7 and alpha4beta1 in these reactions is unknown. To examine the role of alpha4beta7 in the rat a new mAb, TA-6, was developed. TA-6 inhibited adhesion to MAdCAM-1 but not to VCAM-1, a characteristic of alpha4beta7 adhesion, and immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation studies were compatible with binding to alpha4beta7. TA-6 blocked rat lymphocyte adhesion to mesenteric lymph nodes and T cell migration to mucosal lymphoid tissues and it bound to rat mucosal mast cells. TA-6 did not inhibit lymphocyte adhesion to peripheral lymph nodes and T cell migration to peripheral lymphoid tissues or cutaneous inflammatory sites, and was not expressed on connective tissue mast cells.  (+info)

Gi-mediated activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway by receptor mimetic basic secretagogues of connective tissue-type mast cells: bifurcation of arachidonic acid-induced release upstream of MAPK. (4/275)

The family of basic secretagogues of connective tissue mast cells act as receptor mimetic agents, which trigger exocytosis by directly activating G proteins. We now demonstrate that pertussis toxin (Ptx)-sensitive Gi proteins, activated by compound 48/80 (c48/80), a potent member of this family, also activate the p42/p44 MAP kinases (MAPKs). This activation was potentiated by the protein tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor vanadate, whereas the tyrphostin AG-18, a competitive inhibitor of protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs); the protein kinase C inhibitors K252a and GF109203X; the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI-3K) inhibitors wortmannin and LY294002; and EGTA have abolished this activation. These results suggest that c48/80 activated the p42/p44 MAPKs via a mechanism that involves PTKs, protein kinase C, phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase and Ca2+ as mediators. Protein tyrosine phosphorylation and activation of the p42/p44 MAPKs were closely correlated with stimulation of arachidonic acid (AA) release by c48/80 but not with histamine secretion. However, whereas PD98059, the inhibitor of the MAPK kinase has abrogated MAPK activation, this inhibitor failed to effect release of AA. We therefore conclude that by activating Ptx-sensitive Gi protein(s), the basic secretagogues of mast cells stimulate multiple signaling pathways, which diverge to regulate the production and release of the different inflammatory mediators. Whereas the signaling pathway responsible for triggering histamine release is PTK independent, the pathway responsible for the stimulation of AA release bifurcates downstream to PTKs but upstream to the activation of MAPKs.  (+info)

Cyclic expression of mRNA transcripts for connective tissue components in the mouse ovary. (5/275)

In the ovary, differentiation of germinal cells into primordial follicles, functional ovulatory follicles and corpus luteum, all take place in a connective tissue matrix. We postulated that extracellular matrix (ECM) of the ovary participates actively in ovarian functions. To test this, the mRNA levels for several ECM components were determined in the mouse ovary at six distinct stages of the 4-day oestrous cycle. Northern analysis revealed statistically significant cyclic expression patterns for the mRNAs coding for type III, IV and VI collagens as well as for the small proteoglycan, biglycan, and for syndecan-1 and osteonectin. The cyclic changes observed in the mRNAs for these structural components exceeded those for matrix metalloproteinases (MMP)-2, -9 and -13, and for tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases (TIMP)-1, -2 and -3, where the changes were not statistically significant, despite their apparent role in ECM remodelling in the ovary. These observations support the hypothesis that cyclic changes in the production and degradation of ECM are part of normal ovarian function connected with follicular maturation, rupture and corpus luteum formation.  (+info)

Distribution of membrane cofactor protein (MCP/CD46) on pig tissues. Relevance To xenotransplantation. (6/275)

Membrane cofactor protein (MCP; CD46) is a 50-60 000 MW glycoprotein, expressed on a wide variety of cells and tissues in man, which plays an important role in regulating complement activation. Human MCP has also been shown to be the receptor for measles virus. We have recently identified the pig analogue of MCP and demonstrated that pig MCP has cofactor activity for factor I-mediated cleavage of C3b when these components are derived either from pig or human. As a consequence, pig MCP is an efficient regulator of the classic and alternative pathways of human and pig complement. In order to define the potential importance of MCP in protecting against complement activation in the pig, we have conducted a comprehensive survey of its distribution in pig cells and organs. As in humans, MCP in the pig is broadly and abundantly distributed. Pig MCP is highly expressed on all circulating cells, including erythrocytes, in contrast to its absence on human erythrocytes. Multiple isoforms of MCP are found on cells and in tissues, probably representing products of alternative splicing analogous to those found in man. MCP is abundantly expressed throughout all tissues examined with particularly strong staining on the vascular endothelium. Connective tissue elements within liver and testis are also strongly stained by anti-pig MCP antibodies. Pig MCP is expressed only weakly on skeletal muscle cells and expression is absent from smooth muscle cells in the lung and vessel walls, sites at which human MCP is expressed. Of particular note, MCP is not expressed in B-cell areas of the germinal centres of lymph nodes.  (+info)

Increased incidence of apoptosis in non-labour-affected cytotrophoblast cells in term fetal membranes overlying the cervix. (7/275)

A regional reduction in the cellularity of the cytotrophoblastic and decidual layers occurs in the fetal membranes overlying the cervix in the lower uterine segment prior to labour. Although the mechanism(s) involved are not known it could result from regionally increased apoptosis, the histological manifestation of programmed cell death, or decreased proliferation. Apoptosis was assessed in regionally sampled fetal membranes from women undergoing elective Caesarean section (n = 14) by the presence of apoptotic bodies by light and electron microscopy. Cell proliferation was assessed by immunocytochemical detection of the protein Ki-67. Apoptotic bodies were identified in all regions of the fetal membrane with the highest incidence found within the cytotrophoblast layer. However, this layer in fetal membranes biopsied over the cervix contained significantly more apoptotic bodies (mean +/- SD 0.085 +/- 0.020%) compared to the layer in fetal membranes obtained from the mid-zone (0.020 +/- 0.008%) apoptotic bodies. Isolated Ki-67 positive cells were detected in the cytotrophoblast layer, but no regional differences in their incidence were seen. Fetal membranes also failed to exhibit significant immunoreactivity for BCL-2 but exhibited strong BAX immunoreactivity within the decidual layer. We conclude that the regionally increased incidence of apoptosis in the cytotrophoblastic layer in the membrane overlying the cervix may account for the reduction in its cellularity but not the relative decrease in the decidual layer. Given the consequence of the loss of local function in degrading uterotonins and stabilizing the fetal membrane, the study of the regulation of apoptosis in these cells may have important implications for fetal membrane rupture and parturition.  (+info)

Lipopolysaccharide-activated macrophages stimulate the synthesis of collagen type I and C-fibronectin in cultured pancreatic stellate cells. (8/275)

We have recently identified and characterized pancreatic stellate cells (PSC) in rats and humans (Gastroenterology 1998, 15:421-435). PSC are suggested to represent the main cellular source of extracellular matrix in chronic pancreatitis. Now we describe a paracrine stimulatory loop between human macrophages and PSC (rat and human) that results in an increased extracellular matrix synthesis. Native and transiently acidified supernatants of cultured macrophages were added to cultured PSC in the presence of 0.1% fetal calf serum. Native supernatants of lipopolysaccharide-activated macrophages stimulated the synthesis of collagen type I 1.38 +/- 0.09-fold of control and c-fibronectin 1.89 +/- 0.18-fold of control. Transiently acidified supernatants stimulated collagen type I and c-fibronectin 2.10 +/- 0.2-fold and 2.80 +/- 0.05-fold of control, respectively. Northern blot demonstrated an increased expression of the collagen-I-(alpha-1)-mRNA and fibronectin-mRNA in PSC 10 hours after addition of the acidified macrophage supernatants. Cell proliferation measured by bromodeoxyuridine incorporation was not influenced by the macrophage supernatants. Unstimulated macrophages released 1.97 pg TGFbeta1/microgram of DNA over 24 hours and lipopolysaccharide-activated macrophages released 6.61pg TGFbeta1/microgram of DNA over 24 hours. These data together with the results that, in particular, transiently acidified macrophage supernatants increased matrix synthesis, identify TGFbeta as the responsible mediator. In conclusion, our data demonstrate a paracrine stimulation of matrix synthesis of pancreatic stellate cells via TGFbeta1 released by activated macrophages. We suggest that macrophages might play a pivotal role in the development of pancreas fibrosis.  (+info)

Many of the differentiated cells in the adult body can be grouped into families whose members are closely related by origin and by character. An important example is the family of connective-tissue cells, whose members are not only related but also unusually interconvertible. The family includes fibroblasts, cartilage cells, and bone cells, all of which are specialized for the secretion of collagenous extracellular matrix and are jointly responsible for the architectural framework of the body. The connective-tissue family also includes fat cells and smooth muscle cells. These cell types and the interconversions that are thought to occur between them are illustrated in Figure 22-45. Connective-tissue cells play a central part in the support and repair of almost every tissue and organ, and the adaptability of their differentiated character is an important feature of the responses to many types of damage.Figure 22-45The family of connective-tissue cells Arrows show the interconversions that are thought to
The present invention provides a new and improved method for preparing a composite bone graft. The method includes providing a bone marrow aspirate suspension and passing the bone marrow aspirate suspension through a porous, biocompatible, implantable substrate to provide a composite bone graft having an enriched population of connective tissue progenitor cells. Because the method is preferably performed intraoperatively it reduces the number of occasions the graftee must undergo invasive procedures. The invention also relates to an improved composite bone graft prepared according to the present method. The improved composite graft includes an enriched population of connective tissue progenitor cells and a greater number of connective tissue progenitor cells per unit volume than that found in the original bone marrow aspirate. The present invention also relates to a kit including the apparatus used for preparing the composite bone graft.

1. Fragments of skin taken from the back of the leopard frog were cultivated in a mixture of plasma and muscle extract of the same species.. 2. A few hours after explanation, processes of activity are seen to arise, which finally lead to the formation of a compact epithelial rim around the fragment of skin.. 3. These epithelial cells undergo gradual transformation into a spindle-shaped type of cell; in this form they resemble the spindle cells which have been described as connective tissue cells.. 4. The growth of a rim of tissue around the explanted fragments of skin may be ascribed principally to the activity of a basal layer of epithelial cells, the units of which first advance into the medium as compact membranes by means of the so called epithelial movement, but which later become separated from the compact membrane, and having assume a spindle form, spread according to the manner of connective tissue cells.. 5. In contradistinction to this basal layer, the cells of an upper and middle ...

Connective tissue progenitors (CTP) can act as a pluripotent source of reparative cells during injury and therefore have great potential in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. However, the response of CTP to most growth factors and cytokines is unknown. Many envisioned applications of CTP, such as treating large defects in bone, involve in vivo implantation of CTP attached to a scaffold, a process that creates an acute inflammatory environment that may be hostile to CTP survival. This project entails the design of a two-component polymeric implant system to aid in the healing process of bony defects by influencing cell behaviors at the implant site through the covalent modification of the implant surface with selected ligands. We investigate cellular responses of CTP on a biomaterial surface covalently modified with epidermal growth factor (EGF) and find that surface-tethered EGF (tEGF) promotes both cell spreading and survival more strongly than saturating concentrations of soluble ...
Small is known about how pro-obesity diet plans regulate tissues progenitor and control cell function. on digestive tract homeostasis, we preserved rodents on a long lasting HFD (60% unwanted fat diet plan; Prolonged Data 1o) for 9C14 a few months, which is normally enough to observe many of the metabolic phenotypes linked with weight problems10,11. Consistent with prior reviews, HFD-fed rodents obtained significantly even more mass than their regular chow-fed counterparts (Prolonged Data 1a). While the little digestive tract from HFD-fed rodents had been shorter in duration (Expanded Data 1c) and considered much less (Expanded Data 1b), there was no transformation in the thickness of crypt-villous systems (Prolonged Data 1d) or in the quantity of apoptotic cells (Prolonged Data 1n).

Connective tissue gives our body support and protection at the same time. The crucial molecules that are produced in the connective tissue cells are collagen fibers. They have a similar function in our body as the steel girders in a skyscraper.. The collagen types I and IV play a particular role in our body. Collagen type IV is especially important for the blood vessel walls and the cardiovascular system.. The activation of collagen production in the nucleus (gene expression) was used to investigate how different micronutrient combinations affect the production of type IV collagen. The examination was performed on skin cells in human cells of the arterial wall (smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts). The enquiry concerning the formation of collagen stability molecules (type IV) showed a significant increase. The collagen formation could be increased by up to 200% compared to the control group (without the addition of micronutrients). ...
In cell or tissue engineering, it is essential to develop a support for cell-to-cell adhesion, which leads towards the generation of cell sheets linked by extracellular matrix. thermoresponsive supports for transplanting in vitro cultured fibroblasts. Introduction The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, is composed mostly of epithelial cells (keratinocytes), pigment cells (melanocytes), cells responsible for immune reactions (Langerhans cells) and nervous system cells (Merkels cells), whereas fibroblasts are connective tissue cells that inhabit the dermis. Connective tissue, the main component of the dermis, is composed mostly of collagen and elastin fibers [1]. Skin cells can proliferate ex vivo in cell culture under appropriate conditions. Without the ability to adhere to the surface of a culture flask, these types of cells cannot proliferate. Therefore, the cells are cultured in Amyloid b-Peptide (1-42) human irreversible inhibition an appropriate medium to ensure cellular adhesion to the ...

Platelet-derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is a potent stimulator of growth and motility of connective tissue cells such as fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells as well as other cells such as capillary endothelial cells and neurons.The PDGF family of growth factors is composed of four different polypeptide chains encoded by four different genes. The classical PDGF chains, PDGF-A and PDGF-B, and more recently discovered PDGF-C and PDGF-D. The four PDGF chains assemble into disulphide-bonded dimers via homo- or heterodimerization, and five different dimeric isoforms have been described so far; PDGF-AA, PDGF-AB, PDGF-BB, PDGF-CC and PDGF-DD. It is notable that no heterodimers involving PDGF-C and PDGF-D chains have been described. PDGF exerts its effects by binding to, and activating, two protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) receptors, alpha and beta. These receptors dimerize and undergo autophosphorylation. The phosphorylation sites then attract downstream effectors to transduct the signal into the cell ...

is the amorphous substance that fills the space between the cells and contains the fibers. It is composed of interstitial fluid, cell adhesion proteins and proteoglycans. Cells adhesion proteins allow the connective tissue cells to attach themselves to matrix elements. The proteoglycans are proteins to which polysaccharides are attached. These polysaccharides can trap more or less water depending their nature and form a substance that varies from a fluid to a semi-stiff hydrated gel. The relative amounts and kinds of polysaccharides help determine the properties of the matrix. For example, the more polysaccharides, the stiffer the ground substance is. The ground substance supports cells, binds them together and functions as a medium through which nutrients and other dissolved substances can diffuse between capillaries and cells ...
The investigators induced heart injury in mice through transverse aortic constriction (TAC). A control group of mice underwent a surgical procedure without the aortic constriction, for comparison. They evaluated acute cardiac modeling events beginning two days after surgery, including changes in hypertrophy, collagen deposition, capillary density, and cell populations.. Within 48 hours after injury, the left ventricular free wall and septum were significantly enlarged, with an increase in heart weight and relative wall thickness compared to controls. In addition to this hypertrophy, a significant decrease in capillary density was observed two days after TAC. Increased levels of pericytes, which are connective tissue cells in small blood vessels, were associated with the reduction in capillary density, supporting earlier research that suggested a role for pericytes in stabilizing vessels and minimizing vascular remodeling. The participation of pericytes could mark the period where degradation ...

Mast cells are commonly recognized for their detrimental role in allergic reactions and can, upon activation through the high-affinity receptor for IgE (FcεRI), rapidly produce and secrete many of the mediators responsible for the typical symptoms in urticaria, asthma and rhinitis. However, increasing amount of data show that mast cells have important, even vital, roles in host defence against bacteria, viruses, parasites and venoms. Mast cells exist as two different subtypes, MCT (mucosal mast cells) and MCTC (connective tissue mast cells). These two subtypes differ in their molecular expression and distribution in the body. MCT are for example the dominating subtype in the lungs, while MCTC are most common in the skin and the gastrointestinal tract. ...

Research on the biology of the tumor stroma has the potential to lead to development of more effective treatment regimes enhancing the efficacy of drug-based treatment of solid malignancies. Tumor stroma is characterized by distorted blood vessels and activated connective tissue cells producing a collagen-rich matrix, which is accompanied by elevated interstitial fluid pressure (IFP), indicating a transport barrier between tumor tissue and blood. Here, we show that the collagen-binding proteoglycan fibromodulin controls stroma structure and fluid balance in experimental carcinoma. Gene ablation or inhibition of expression by anti-inflammatory agents showed that fibromodulin promoted the formation of a dense stroma and an elevated IFP. Fibromodulin-deficiency did not affect vasculature but increased the extracellular fluid volume and lowered IFP. Our data suggest that fibromodulin controls stroma matrix structure that in turn modulates fluid convection inside and out of the stroma. This finding ...
The procedure is based on the ELOS™ technology which affects dermis with the combination of infrared light (IRL) and bi-polar radio frequency.. Changes in skin texture, like formation of wrinkles, sagging of skin and losing elasticity, results from the lessening of collagen and elastin in dermis. The procedure stimulates the long-term collagen synthesis and tightens the existing collagen fibres, providing immediate tone. Due to accumulated heat skin tissue tightens gradually, and finer and deeper wrinkles become more even and soft. As a result of tissue contraction it improves the elasticity of forehead, neck, chin and cheek area and keeps improving thanks to more intensive collagen synthesis.. With infrared light dermis is heated up to a depth of 1-3 mm which suits to all types of skin. Heating tissue improves the function of fibroblast (connective tissue cells) which in turn stimulates the production of collagen. Infrared light together with bi-polar radio frequency allows to heat dermis up ...
PDGFs are disulfide-linked dimers consisting of two 12.0-13.5 kDa polypeptide chains, designated PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains. The three naturally occurring PDGFs; PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB, are potent mitogens for a variety of cell types including smooth muscle cells, connective tissue cells, bone and cartilage cells, and some blood cells. The PDGFs are stored in platelet alpha-granules and are released upon platelet activation. The PDGFs are involved in a number of biological processes, including hyperplasia, chemotaxis, embryonic neuron development, and respiratory tubule epithelial cell development. Two distinct signaling receptors used by PDGFs have been identified and named PDGFR-alpha and PDGFR-beta. PDGFR-alpha is high-affinity receptor for each of the three PDGF forms. On the other hand, PDGFR-beta interacts with only PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB. Recombinant human PDGF-BB is a 24.3 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer of two B chains (218 total amino acids ...
Abdel Halim Tolba, a snake hunter, holds a mouse which is used to feed snakes at the Tolba snake farm in Cairo, Egypt. (REUTERS). HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese researchers have managed to create powerful stem cells from mouse skin and used these to generate fertile live mouse pups.. They used induced pluripotent skin cells, or iPS cells - cells that have been reprogrammed to look and act like embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells, taken from days-old embryos, have the power to morph into any cell type and, in mice, can be implanted into a mothers womb to create living mouse pups.. Their experiment, published in Nature, means that it is theoretically possible to clone someone using ordinary connective tissue cells found on the persons skin, but the experts were quick to distance themselves from such controversy.. We are confident that tremendous good can come from demonstrating the versatility of reprogrammed cells in mice, and this research will be used to … understand the root causes ...
The intervertebral discs are soft structures which act as shock absorbers between each of the vertebrae (bones) in the spine. A single disc sits between each vertebra. Each intervertebral disc has a strong outer ring of fibres (annulus), and a soft, jelly-like centre (nucleus).. The central soft and juicy nucleus is a sphere-shaped structure that allows tilting, rotating, and gliding movements in the spine. The nucleus functions as a primary shock absorber. It is a clear, jellylike material that is made up of 88 percent water in young adults. As the body ages and/or degenerates, the amount of water in the nucleus reduces. The rest of the nucleus is made up of connective tissue cells, collagen fibres, and a small amount of cartilage. There are no blood vessels or nerves in the nucleus, The annulus is a ring-like frame of fibres which connects each vertebral bone. It is the strongest part of the disc and it encloses the central nucleus and holds it under pressure to prevent it from ...
Human Interferon-γ (IFN-γ) is a 20-25 kDa (monomer) pleiotrophic cytokine that is produced by activated T cells and NK cells and is involved in the regulation of almost all immune and inflammatory responses. IFN-γ is involved in the activation, growth and differentiation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, NK cells as well as other cell types. IFN-γ enhances MHC expression on antigen-presenting cells including epithelial, endothelial and connective tissue cell and monocytes cell lines. It also has weak antiviral activity and acts as a macrophage-activating factor (MAF) for tumor cytotoxicity leading to anti-tumor effects. *Alexa Fluor and Pacific Blue are registered trademarks of Molecular Probes, Inc.

Is this the study that was awarded a prize last year for being the most cited study with Geistlich biomaterials? Prof. Lindhe: Yes it is. The funny thing is that we mainly conducted it to investigate the soft tissues. Our focus was: is there any difference regarding epithelium cells, connective tissue cells, etc., between the soft tissues above bone and the soft tissues above a bone substitute material? But the reason this study is cited so often is, of course, that we could also show that the osseointegration in the Geistlich Bio-Oss® augmented area was just as good as in the native bone. This much more important finding was, at the time, just a side observation. ...

Previous histochemical and chemical studies indicated that the granules of the connective tissue mast cells contain a sulfuric mucopolysaccharide. This substance is closely related to heparin and hyaluronic acid without being identical with either.. Stripping-film autoradiography of connective tissue in experimental skin tumors in mice injected intraperitoneally with S35, with sodium sulfate as carrier, showed that the majority of the mast cells take up sulfur. This uptake manifests itself as a blackening of a stripping film.. ...
Heparin is the most widely prescribed biopharmaceutical in production globally. Its potent anticoagulant activity and safety makes it the drug of choice for preventing deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. In 2008, adulterated material was introduced into the heparin supply chain, resulting in several hundred deaths and demonstrating the need for alternate sources of heparin. Heparin is a fractionated form of heparan sulfate derived from animal sources, predominantly from connective tissue mast cells in pig mucosa. While the enzymes involved in heparin biosynthesis are identical to those for heparan sulfate, the factors regulating these enzymes are not understood. Examination of the promoter regions of all genes involved in heparin/heparan sulfate assembly uncovered a transcription factor-binding motif for ZNF263, a C2H2 zinc finger protein. CRISPR-mediated targeting and siRNA knockdown of ZNF263 in mammalian cell lines and human primary cells led to dramatically increased expression ...

Abstract: : Purpose: We have previously shown that proliferation of Human Tenons fibroblasts (HTCFs) from diabetic patients is reduced. The aim of this study was to determine the effect hyperglycaemia on the previously noted changes in proliferation of HTCFs from diabetic and non-diabetic patients. We also determined the expression of cell surface receptors required for control of cellular proliferation in the diabetic and control patients. Methods: Tenons capsule fibroblasts from 7 diabetic and 7 non-diabetic patients were exposed to normo- (5mmol/L) and hyperglycaemic (25mmol/L) conditions and their proliferation determined by 3H thymidine incorporation. The possession of cell surface receptors (PDGF and TGF RII) and intracellular signalling molecules (TGF-ß1, ERK1/2 and MAPK) was determined on lysed and non-lysed cells by direct immunoblotting. Results: Human Tenons capsule fibroblasts (HTCF) derived from diabetic patients exposed to a glucose concentration of 5mmol/L exhibited a ...
Systemic sclerosis is an autoimmune disease. This means that the immune system causes damage to some of the bodys own cells. Normally, our body makes proteins called antibodies to fight infections - for example, when we catch a cold or have a sore throat. These antibodies help to kill the germs causing the infection. In autoimmune diseases the body makes similar antibodies (autoantibodies) that attack its normal cells. In systemic sclerosis, the immune system damages the connective tissue cells, which are found in many parts of the body. Your connective tissue supports, binds or separates other tissues and organs within your body and can also be a kind of packing tissue in your body. So, systemic sclerosis is also classed as a connective tissue disease.. It is not known what triggers the immune system to cause systemic sclerosis. There is probably an inherited tendency to develop it. It is more common in people who have a family member with systemic sclerosis. It may be triggered by certain ...
Stromal cells are connective tissue cells of any organ, for example in the uterine mucosa (endometrium), prostate, bone marrow, lymph node and the ovary. They are cells that support the function of the parenchymal cells of that organ. Fibroblasts and pericytes are among the most common types of stromal cells. The interaction between stromal cells and tumor cells is known to play a major role in cancer growth and progression. In addition, by regulating local cytokine networks (e.g. M-CSF, LIF), bone marrow stromal cells have been described to be involved in human haematopoiesis and inflammatory processes. Stromal cells (in the dermis layer) adjacent to the epidermis (the very top layer of the skin) release growth factors that promote cell division. This keeps the epidermis regenerating from the bottom while the top layer of cells on the epidermis are constantly being sloughed off the body. Certain types of skin cancers (basal cell carcinomas) cannot spread throughout the body because the cancer ...
Stromal cells are connective tissue cells of an organ found in the loose connective tissue.

These are the cells which make up the support structure of biological tissues and support the parenchymal cells.. Cadherin- ...
During limb development, dorsal and ventral muscles progressively separate to form individual muscles in a process called muscle splitting. In their study on p. 2579, Duprez and colleagues reveal that blood vessels regulate this process. They report that the location of endothelial cells, which are present in the developing chick limb before muscle, determines the site of future zones of muscle cleavage. By overexpressing VEGFA (a key growth factor in blood vessel development) in chick wing buds prior to muscle splitting, the researchers induced both blood vessel and connective tissue formation, while inhibiting muscle formation. Conversely, blocking blood vessel formation with a soluble VEGFR1 in chick wing buds caused muscle fusion. The authors propose that PDGFB (platelet-derived growth factor B), which is expressed in endothelial cells, is the molecular signal that regulates this process, perhaps by promoting the production of the extracellular matrix and attracting connective tissue cells ...

The vast diversity in the plant kingdom provides virtually any size and shape of interest, notes Murphy, who was prompted to explore the plant world after gazing from his office window onto UW-Madisons Lakeshore Nature Preserve. It really seemed obvious. Plants are extraordinarily good at cultivating new tissues and organs, and there are thousands of different plant species readily available. They represent a tremendous feedstock of new materials for tissue engineering applications.. The new approach to making scaffolds for tissue engineering depends on cellulose, the primary constituent of the cell walls of green plants. The Wisconsin team found that stripping away all of the other cells that make up the plant, and treating the leftover husks of cellulose with chemicals, entices human stem cells such as fibroblasts -- common connective tissue cells generated from stem cells -- to attach to and grow on the miniature structures.. Stem cells seeded into the scaffolds, according to Fontana, ...

Fenestrated blood vessels in the rat choroid plexus are permeable to dye-labelled proteins, HRP and ferritin. Most leakage appears to be via fenestrae but some additional escape of marker appears to take place through transient and reversible openings in the junctions between endothelial cells. After they have escaped into the choroidal stroma markers are prevented from entering the CSF by tight junctions between the epithelial cells which cover the choroid plexus, but how they are removed from the extravascular space is not known. Electron microscope study of rats who have been given multiple intravenous injections of ferritin shows that extravascular ferritin is take up both by connective tissue cells in the choroidal stroma and by choroidal epithelial cells. The findings suggest that the ingested protein is subsequently broken down within lysosomal vacuoles in the cytoplasm of these cells. Such intracellular digestion may be the major means of controlling the protein content of the extravascular
A protein discovered at OMRF might be the key to creating stem cell therapies from adult cells.. OMRF researcher Carol Webb, Ph.D., and University of Texas at Austin scientist Haley Tucker, Ph.D., found that removing or suppressing the protein called Bright could spontaneously convert connective tissue cells in mouse embryos into pluripotent stem cells-the kinds of cells that have the potential to become almost any other type of cell. Their research was published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.. The ultimate goal of stem cell research is to revert an adult cell into a pluripotent stem cell, which could be used to treat patients using their own cells, Webb said. Weve found that inhibiting the Bright protein improves the efficiency of techniques other labs use to make pluripotent mouse stem cells.. Webb discovered Bright, which is known as ARID3a in humans, and has spent years researching its function. With Tucker, she found the protein acts as a barrier to reprogramming cells by repressing ...
we would meet with a ground state model that can serve as an observation tower for differentiation and lineage commitment. Since dental pulp has a very heterogeneous cell population including connective tissue cells, unique odontoblasts, immune cells, cementoblasts, and bone cells in a very rich neuronal and vascular environment, pushing ontogenically closed cells back to a common progenitor base (mesectodermal cells/NC cells?) would provide an opportunity for following the pathways through cellular specification. Another possible way to use dental pulp iPSC may be through mimicking epithelial-mesenchymal interactions. Dental pulp contains DPSC, which can differentiate to epithelial cells (Marchionni et al ...
December 26, 2017. To date, the molecular basis of pulmonary fibrosis has been poorly understood. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim have now shown that reduced activity of the transcription factor FoxO3 plays a key role in the development of the disease. In research on mice, the progress of the disease was able to be halted using drugs that boost FoxO3 activity. The researchers are hoping they may have found a possible approach to treatment.. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is currently an incurable lung disease, in which sufferers lose the ability to absorb adequate oxygen. Although the word idiopathic means that the cause is unknown, the disease primarily affects former and active heavy smokers from the age of 50.. An important role in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is played by connective tissue cells called fibroblasts. These cells provide structure to the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. During development of the disease, characteristic ...
In the framework of a CTI project the Lucerne-based company nolax and Empa have taken a major step towards solving this problem. They have developed a cell carrier or scaffold from bio-compatible, degradable plastic material that should help wounds to heal. This scaffold - a spongy- like foam made of flexible polyurethane - can be adapted to the exact shape of the wound. Over time, the scaffold should be populated by connective tissue cells. At the same time the body breaks down the foam. All that should remain is a newly formed layer of skin. There are already cell scaffolds on the market, but they are made of products of animal origin, which not only makes them expensive, but also carries the risk of transmitting animal diseases. There are no such disadvantages when synthetic materials are used as wound healing support materials ...

Living tissue cells such as from an animal or a plant are encapsulated in inorganic microspheres. An organosilicon precursor such as tetraethoxysilane or an organometallic precursor such as aluminum tri-n-propoxide is hydrolyzed in an aqueous acidic solution to form a gel forming solution. Tissue cells are mixed with a salt solution such as Hanks Balanced Salt Solution to form a solution containing the tissue cells. The solution containing tissue cells and the gel forming solution are mixed to form a mixture. The mixture is mixed with an oil that is immiscible with the mixture and has a lower specific density than the mixture. The resultant mixture is stirred to form microspheres encapsulating the tissue cells. The mixture containing the tissue cells and the gel forming solution may be formed into droplets and added to the top of a column containing the oil to form the microspheres.
