A telomere-independent senescence mechanism is the sole barrier to Syrian hamster cell immortalization. (1/2283)

Reactivation of telomerase and stabilization of telomeres occur simultaneously during human cell immortalization in vitro and the vast majority of human cancers possess high levels of telomerase activity. Telomerase repression in human somatic cells may therefore have evolved as a powerful resistance mechanism against immortalization, clonal evolution and malignant progression. The comparative ease with which rodent cells immortalize in vitro suggests that they have less stringent controls over replicative senescence than human cells. Here, we report that Syrian hamster dermal fibroblasts possess substantial levels of telomerase activity throughout their culture life-span, even after growth arrest in senescence. In our studies, telomerase was also detected in uncultured newborn hamster skin, in several adult tissues, and in cultured fibroblasts induced to enter the post-mitotic state irreversibly by serum withdrawal. Transfection of near-senescent dermal fibroblasts with a selectable plasmid vector expressing the SV40 T-antigen gene resulted in high-frequency single-step immortalization without the crisis typically observed during the immortalization of human cells. Collectively, these data provide an explanation for the increased susceptibility of rodent cells to immortalization (and malignant transformation) compared with their human equivalents, and provide evidence for a novel, growth factor-sensitive, mammalian senescence mechanism unrelated to telomere maintenance.  (+info)

Growth-inhibitory effect of cyclic GMP- and cyclic AMP-dependent vasodilators on rat vascular smooth muscle cells: effect on cell cycle and cyclin expression. (2/2283)

1. The possibility that the antiproliferative effect of cyclic GMP- and cyclic AMP-dependent vasodilators involves an impaired progression of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) through the cell cycle and expression of cyclins, which in association with the cyclin-dependent kinases control the transition between the distinct phases of the cell cycle, was examined. 2. FCS (10%) stimulated the transition of quiescent VSMC from the G0/G1 to the S phase (maximum within 18-24 h and then to the G2/M phase (maximum within 22-28 h). Sodium nitroprusside and 8-Br-cyclic GMP, as well as forskolin and 8-Br-cyclic AMP markedly reduced the percentage of cells in the S phase after FCS stimulation. 3. FCS stimulated the low basal protein expression of cyclin D1 (maximum within 8-24 h) and E (maximum within 8-38 h) and of cyclin A (maximum within 14-30 h). The stimulatory effect of FCS on cyclin D1 and A expression was inhibited, but that of cyclin E was only minimally affected by the vasodilators. 4. FCS increased the low basal level of cyclin D1 mRNA after a lag phase of 2 h and that of cyclin A after 12 h. The vasodilators significantly reduced the FCS-stimulated expression of cyclin D1 and A mRNA. 5. These findings indicate that cyclic GMP- and cyclic AMP-dependent vasodilators inhibit the proliferation of VSMC by preventing the progression of the cell cycle from the G0/G1 into the S phase, an effect which can be attributed to the impaired expression of cyclin D1 and A.  (+info)

Mycophenolate mofetil inhibits rat and human mesangial cell proliferation by guanosine depletion. (3/2283)

BACKGROUND: Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is used for immunosuppression after renal transplantation because it reduces lymphocyte proliferation by inhibiting inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) in lymphocytes and GTP biosynthesis. In the present study we asked if therapeutic concentrations of MMF might interfere with mesangial cell (MC) proliferation which is involved in inflammatory proliferative glomerular diseases. METHODS: Rat and human MCs were growth-arrested by withdrawal of fetal calf serum (FCS) and stimulated by addition of FCS, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) or lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). Different concentrations of MMF (0.019-10 microM) were added concomitantly in the presence or absence of guanosine. MC proliferation was determined by [3H]thymidine incorporation. Cell viability was assessed by trypan blue exclusion. Apoptotic nuclei were stained using the Hoechst dye H33258. Cytosolic free Ca2+ concentrations were determined with the fluorescent calcium chelator fura-2-AM. RESULTS: MMF inhibited mitogen-induced rat MC proliferation with an IC50 of 0.45 +/- 0.13 microM. Human MCs proved to be even more sensitive (IC50 0.19 +/- 0.06 microM). Inhibition of MC proliferation was reversible and not accompanied by cellular necrosis or apoptosis. Addition of guanosine prevented the antiproliferative effect of MMF, indicating that inhibition of IMPDH is responsible for decreased MC proliferation. Early signalling events of GTP-binding-protein-coupled receptors, such as changes in intracellular Ca2+ levels were not affected by MMF. CONCLUSIONS: The results show that MMF has a concentration-dependent antiproliferative effect on cultured MCs in the therapeutic range, which might be a rationale for the use of this drug in the treatment of mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis.  (+info)

Altered expression of the IGF-1 receptor in a tamoxifen-resistant human breast cancer cell line. (4/2283)

The relationship between oestrogen (E2) and insulin-like growth factor-one (IGF-1) was examined in both tamoxifen-sensitive (MCF 7/5-21) and tamoxifen-resistant (MCF 7/5-23) subclones of the MCF 7 cell line. Both subclones were grown in defined, serum-free (SF) medium over a period of 7 days with the addition of E2 or IGF-1 or a combination of both agents. Growth of both MCF 7/5-21 and 7/5-23 cells was stimulated (245% and 350%, respectively) by E2. However, only the growth of MCF 7/5-23 cells was stimulated (266%) by IGF-1. A combination of E2 and IGF-1 significantly enhanced MCF 7/5-21 and 7/5-23 cell growth (581% and 695%, respectively). E2-induced IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) levels (as measured by 125I-IGF-1 binding and Northern analyses) in only MCF 7/5-23 cells. This effect was partially inhibited by tamoxifen. In medium containing serum, the growth of only the MCF 7/5-23 cells was significantly inhibited by the IGF-1R monoclonal antibody, alphaIR-3. The detection of E2-induced expression of IGF-2 using RT-PCR was demonstrated in the MCF 7/5-23 cells. These experiments indicate that E2 may sensitize tamoxifen-resistant MCF 7/5-23 cells to the growth stimulatory actions of IGF-2 via up-regulation of the IGF-1R and describes a cell-survival mechanism that may manifest itself as tamoxifen resistance.  (+info)

Protection against necrosis but not apoptosis by heat-stress proteins in vascular smooth muscle cells: evidence for distinct modes of cell death. (5/2283)

We have reported previously that cultured vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) isolated from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) show higher proliferation and cell death than normotensive controls. In addition to protecting cells against death, heat stress proteins (HSPs) appear to play a role in cell proliferation. This investigation examines the involvement of HSP72 and HSP27 in altered SHR VSMC proliferation and death. We have performed detailed discriminatory analysis to characterize which type of VSMC death is induced by heat stress (HS) and serum deprivation. Serum deprivation induced apoptosis (caspase-3 cleavage and DNA laddering) and secondary necrosis, the 2 processes being a continuum of each other. In contrast, acute HS (46 degrees C, 30 minutes), which inhibited BN. lx and SHR VSMC proliferation by 2-fold, increased necrosis (by 5-fold and 2-fold, respectively) but not apoptosis. HSP72 and HSP27 expression evoked in VSMC by mild HS (44 degrees C, 15 minutes) 6 hours before acute HS prevented the inhibition of proliferation and induction of necrosis with no effect on serum deprivation-induced or staurosporine-induced apoptosis. This induced expression of HSP72 and HSP27 did not eliminate the higher basal proliferation, apoptosis, and necrosis of SHR VSMC compared with BN.lx VSMC, suggesting that these HSPs are not involved in altered SHR VSMC proliferation and death. Also, although apoptosis and necrosis may be a continuum, in VSMC the 2 processes may be distinguished by HS, in which only necrosis is prevented by prior HSP accumulation. This observation may be of use in designing strategies for cellular protection.  (+info)

O-glycosylation potential of lepidopteran insect cell lines. (6/2283)

The enzyme activities involved in O-glycosylation have been studied in three insect cell lines, Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf-9), Mamestra brassicae (Mb) and Trichoplusia ni (Tn) cultured in two different serum-free media. The structural features of O-glycoproteins in these insect cells were investigated using a panel of lectins and the glycosyltransferase activities involved in O-glycan biosynthesis of insect cells were measured (i.e., UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase, UDP-Gal:core-1 beta1, 3-galactosyltransferase, CMP-NeuAc:Galbeta1-3GalNAc alpha2, 3-sialyltransferase, and UDP-Gal:Galbeta1-3GalNAc alpha1, 4-galactosyltransferase activities). First, we show that O-glycosylation potential depends on cell type. All three lepidopteran cell lines express GalNAcalpha-O-Ser/Thr antigen, which is recognized by soy bean agglutinin and reflects high UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry studies revealed the presence of at least two different UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases in these insect cells. Only some O-linked GalNAc residues are further processed by the addition of beta1,3-linked Gal residues to form T-antigen, as shown by the binding of peanut agglutinin. This reflects relative low levels of UDP-Gal:core-1 beta1,3-galactosyltransferase in insect cells, as compared to those observed in mammalian control cells. In addition, we detected strong binding of Bandeiraea simplicifolia lectin-I isolectin B4 to Mamestra brassicae endogenous glycoproteins, which suggests a high activity of a UDP-Gal:Galbeta1-3GalNAc alpha1, 4-galactosyltransferase. This explains the absence of PNA binding to Mamestra brassicae glycoproteins. Furthermore, our results substantiated that there is no sialyltransferase activity and, therefore, no terminal sialic acid production by these cell lines. Finally, we found that the culture medium influences the O-glycosylation potential of each cell line.  (+info)

Flow cytometric cell cycle analysis of cultured porcine fetal fibroblast cells. (7/2283)

Normal development of nuclear transfer embryos is thought to be dependent on transferral of nuclei in G0 or G1 phases of the cell cycle. Therefore, we investigated the cell cycle characteristics of porcine fetal fibroblast cells cultured under a variety of cell cycle-arresting treatments. This was achieved by using flow cytometry to simultaneously measure cellular DNA and protein content, enabling the calculation of percentages of cells in G0, G1, S, and G2+M phases of the cell cycle. Cultures that were serum starved for 5 days contained higher (p < 0.05) percentages of G0+G1 (87.5 +/- 0. 7) and G0 cells alone (48.3 +/- 9.7) compared with rapidly cycling cultures (G0+G1: 74.1 +/- 3.0; G0: 2.8 +/- 1.2). Growth to confluency increased (p < 0.05) G0+G1 percentages (85.1 +/- 2.8) but did not increase G0 percentages (6.0 +/- 5.3) compared to those in cycling cultures. Separate assessment of small-, medium-, and large-sized cells showed that as the cell size decreased from large to small, percentages of cells in G0+G1 and G0 alone increased (p < 0.05). We found 95.2 +/- 0.3% and 72.2 +/- 12.0% of small serum-starved cells in G0+G1 and G0 alone, respectively. Cultures were also treated with cell cycle inhibitors. Treatment with dimethyl sulfoxide (1%) or colchicine (0.5 microM) increased percentages of cells in G0 (24.8 +/- 20.0) or G2+M (37.4 +/- 4.6), respectively. However, cells were only slightly responsive to mimosine treatment. A more complete understanding of the cell cycle of donor cells should lead to improvements in the efficiency of nuclear transfer procedures.  (+info)

Cellular effects of beta-particle delivery on vascular smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells: a dose-response study. (8/2283)

BACKGROUND: Although endovascular radiotherapy inhibits neointimal hyperplasia, the exact cellular alterations induced by beta irradiation remain to be elucidated. METHODS AND RESULTS: We investigated in vitro the ability of 32P-labeled oligonucleotides to alter (1) proliferation of human and porcine vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and human coronary artery endothelial cells (ECs), (2) cell cycle progression, (3) cell viability and apoptosis, (4) cell migration, and (5) cell phenotype and morphological features. beta radiation significantly reduced proliferation of VSMCs (ED50 1.10 Gy) and ECs (ED50 2.15 Gy) in a dose-dependent manner. Exposure to beta emission interfered with cell cycle progression, with induction of G0/G1 arrest in VSMCs, without evidence of cell viability alteration, apoptosis, or ultrastructural changes. This strategy also proved to efficiently inhibit VSMC migration by 80% and induce contractile phenotype appearance, as shown by the predominance of alpha-actin immunostaining in beta-irradiated cells compared with control cells. CONCLUSIONS: 32P-labeled oligonucleotide was highly effective in inhibiting proliferation of both VSMCs and ECs in a dose-dependent fashion, with ECs showing a higher resistance to these effects. beta irradiation-induced G1 arrest was not associated with cytotoxicity and apoptosis, thus demonstrating a potent cytostatic effect of beta-based therapy. This effect, coupled to that on VSMC migration inhibition and the appearance of a contractile phenotype, reinforced the potential of ionizing radiation to prevent neointima formation after angioplasty.  (+info)

This study points out the interest in HPL as a replacement for FBS in culture media for expansion of human BM MSCs. Thus, HPL-containing media not only preserve their phenotype as well as their differentiation capacity but also shorten culture time by increasing their growth rate. Nevertheless, some differences exist in terms of cytokines produced, suggesting functional differences between MSCs expanded in media supplemented with HPL and FBS. This has to be considered for particular clinical applications.. The possibility to use animal serum-free culture media has been reported in several recent studies by substituting FBS with human-derived supplements such as HPL or human serum [17-25]. In the present study, MSC expansions were performed in three different HPL-supplemented media consisting of BGM (α-MEM) with (M2) or without (M3 and M4) FBS and compared with the standard medium devoid of HPL (M1). M1 (supplemented with 10% FBS + 1 ng/mL FGF2) represents the reference medium for MSC expansion ...
A central feature of tumor metastasis is the migration of malignant cells through interstitial tissues and vascular structures as they spread throughout the body. Various components of the extracellular matrix and of basement membranes, consisting of genetically distinct collagens, proteoglycans, and noncollagenous glycoproteins, are known to modulate certain aspects of cell behavior, including cell movement. Serum spreading factor is a glycoprotein component of human serum that is also found in interstitial tissues. Two native forms are seen in human serum, a Mr 65,000 and a Mr 75,000 component. Spreading factor promotes substratum attachment and spreading of diverse cell types, including epithelial and fibroblastic cells, and will affect the growth rate and differentiation of cells in serum-free culture media. Serum spreading factor was shown to promote the directed migration of the following tumor cell lines in modified Boyden chamber assays: murine melanoma K-1735 (clones M2, M4, and 16); ...
In my experience with serum-free media, cell lines that were normally adherent did not adhere, and did not grow well (Cho1.1, H460, 293T); however, cells that would grow in clumps were more clumpy, but grew slowly (HepG2, H157). I do not know what these changes is growth behavior and apparence have on subsequent experiments, but I would guess it varies with cell lines ...

Defective acute regulation of hepatic glycogen synthase by glucose and insulin, caused by severe insulin deficiency, can be corrected in adult rat hepatocytes in primary culture by inclusion of insulin, triiodothyronine, and cortisol in a chemically defined serum-free culture medium over a 3-day period (Miller, T. B., Jr., Garnache, A. K., Cruz, J., McPherson, R. K., and Wolleben, C. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 785-790). Using primary cultures of hepatocytes isolated from normal and diabetic rats in the same serum-free chemically defined medium, the present study addresses the effects of cycloheximide and actinomycin D on the chronic actions of insulin, triiodothyronine, and cortisol to facilitate the direct effects of glucose on the short-term activation of glycogen synthase. The short-term presence (1 h) of the protein synthesis blockers had no effect on acute activation of glycogen synthase by glucose in primary hepatocyte cultures from normal rats. Normal cells maintained in the presence of
Cervical explant cultures were first developed by Fink et al.44 for the study of epithelium metaplasia in vitro. They consisted of large tissue explants (5 × 5 × 2 mm or 5 × 10 × 3 mm) cultured on a thin slab of agarose-gelled serum-free Eagles Basal Medium on top of a stainless steel supporting grid. This culture method was successfully adapted to the study of HSV-2 and HSV-1 infection in vitro and was shown to support the replication of these two human herpesviruses.45 OBrien et al.46 modified this method for the study of the production of glycoprotein from normal and malignant cervical explants of smaller size (5 mm3) cultured either fully immersed in serum-free culture medium or maintained at the air-liquid interface, supported only by a stainless steel grid mesh. On the basis of glycoprotein production, the authors concluded that the grid technique was superior to the immersion culture. It was this grid technique that was adapted to the study of HIV-1 infection in human cervical ...
In this study, we characterized signaling cascades activated on direct contact of leukemic cells with bone marrow-derived stromal cells. Our findings indicate stroma-induced activation of ILK with phosphorylation of Akt and GSK3β. Because p-GSK3βSer9 is a known cellular target of ILK ( 7), these results are consistent with evidence of ILK activation induced by growth factors or engagement of the integrins by stroma. We further showed that the nuclear accumulation of β-catenin, a downstream GSK3β target, was induced in NB4 cells by coculture with MSCs and that this accumulation was abrogated when the PI3K/ILK pathway was inhibited. In contrast, the GSK3 inhibitor BIO, which prevented the serum withdrawal-induced apoptosis of NB4 cells, stimulated the translocation of β-catenin to the nucleus in cells growing without stromal support. Altogether, these findings provide evidence that stroma-induced ILK activation results in GSK3 inhibition and up-regulation of nuclear β-catenin consistent with ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Sphingosine 1-Phosphate Protects Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells from Serum-deprived Apoptosis by Nitric Oxide Production. AU - Kwon, Young Guen. AU - Min, Jeong Ki. AU - Kim, Ki Mo. AU - Lee, Doo Jae. AU - Billiar, Timothy R.. AU - Kim, Young Myeong. PY - 2001/4/6. Y1 - 2001/4/6. N2 - Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) can prevent endothelial cell apoptosis. We investigated the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways by which S1P protects endothelial cells from serum deprivation-induced apoptosis. We show here that human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) undergo apoptosis associated with increased DEVDase activity, caspase-3 activation, cytochrome c release, and DNA fragmentation after 24 h of serum deprivation. These apoptotic markers were suppressed by the addition of S1P, the NO donor S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine (100 μM), or caspase-3 inhibitor z-VAD-fmk. The protective effects of S1P were reversed by the nitric-oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor ...

Recently, cell lifestyle systems producing hepatitis C virus particles (HCVcc) were developed. we developed serum-free culture systems producing high-titer single-density sf-HCVcc, showing similar biological properties as HCVcc. This methodology has the potential to advance HCV vaccine development and to facilitate biophysical studies of HCV. within the family. Due to a high degree of genetic heterogeneity, HCV has been categorized in 6 essential genotypes and several subtypes epidemiologically, differing in around 30% and 20% of their nucleotide and amino Vorinostat acidity sequence, [3 respectively,4]. Genotypes display important biological and clinical variations [5C10]. Serotypes Rabbit Polyclonal to 5-HT-2C. never have been defined; nevertheless, different genotypes and subtypes display differential level of sensitivity to neutralizing antibodies within sera of chronically contaminated patients also to monoclonal neutralizing antibodies with restorative potential [6,11C14]. The 9.6 kb HCV ...
The HL-60 (Human promyelocytic leukemia cells) cell line has been used for laboratory research on how certain kinds of blood cells are formed. HL-60 proliferates continuously in suspension culture in nutrient and antibiotic chemicals. The doubling time is about 36-48 hours. The cell line was derived from a 36-year-old woman with acute promyelocytic leukemia at MD Anderson Cancer Center. HL-60 cells are predominantly a neutrophilic promyelocyte (precursor). Proliferation of HL-60 cells occurs through the transferrin and insulin receptors, which are expressed on cell surface. The requirement for insulin and transferrin is absolute, as HL-60 proliferation immediately ceases if either of these compounds is removed from the serum-free culture media. With this line, differentiation to mature granulocytes can be induced by compounds such as dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), or retinoic acid. Other compounds like 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and GM-CSF can induce HL-60 ...

For typical Western blotting experiments, (e.g., Fig. 2J-L), cells were plated at 200,000 cells per well of a 12-well plate in complete Dulbeccos modified Eagles medium (DMEM)/F12 media containing 10% serum. The next day, cells were treated as indicated. For Western blotting involving production of cytokines, ARPE-19 cells were plated as described above followed by gradual serum removal over the course of a week until the serum was removed completely followed by indicated treatments. At appropriate time points, ARPE-19 cells were lysed in-plate with either radioimmunoprecipitation assay (RIPA) buffer (50 mM Tris, pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl2, 1% Triton X-100 [vol/vol], 0.1% SDS [wt/vol], 0.5% sodium deoxycholate [wt/vol]) supplemented with Halt Protease and Phosphatase inhibitors (Pierce, Rockford, IL, USA) and benzonase (Sigma-Aldrich Corp.) or a buffer containing 50 mM HEPES pH 8, 10 mM KCl, 2 mM MgCl2, and 1.0% SDS also supplemented with benzonase.

Abstract: Stochastic partial differential equations frequently arise as limits of finite systems of weighted interacting particles. For a variety of purposes, it is useful to keep the particles in the limit obtaining an infinite exchangeable system of stochastic differential equations for the particle locations and weights. The corresponding de Finetti measure then gives the solution of the SPDE. These representations frequently simplify existence, uniqueness and convergence results. Following some discussion of general approaches to SPDEs, the talk will focus on situations where the particle locations are given by an iid family of diffusion processes, and the weights are chosen to obtain a nonlinear driving term and to match given boundary conditions for the SPDE. (Recent results are joint work with Dan Crisan ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Angiopoietin-1 protects endothelial cells from hypoxia-induced apoptosis via inhibition of phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted from chromosome ten. AU - Lee, Sae Won. AU - Youn, Seock Won. AU - Kim, Tae Youn. AU - Suh, Jung Won. AU - Koh, Gou Young. AU - Kwon, Yoo Wook. AU - Chae, In Ho. AU - Park, Young Bae. AU - Kim, Hyo Soo. PY - 2009/2. Y1 - 2009/2. N2 - Background and Objectives: Angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) is a regulator of blood vessel growth and maturation, and prevents radiation-induced or serum deprivation-induced apoptosis. Phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted from chromosome ten (PTEN), a well-known tumor suppressor, regulates cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Hypoxia induces apoptosis by increasing the expression of PTEN. We hypothesized that Angl may regulate PTEN expression and, thus, reduce endothelial apoptosis under hypoxia in vitro and in vivo. Materials and Methods: In vitro, human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were treated with Ang1, and ...
Human SDMCs. Cultures of skin-derived mast cells (SDMCs) were prepared as previously described (16). In brief, discarded surgical samples of human skin were obtained from deidentified sources through the Cooperative Human Tissue Network (supported by the National Cancer Institute, NIH). Skin fragments were mechanically minced and then processed via enzymatic digestion with Collagenase Type 2 (Worthington Biochemical Corp.), DNase Type 1 (MilliporeSigma), and hyaluronidase (MilliporeSigma) before isolation of mononuclear cells via centrifugation with Percoll PLUS (GE Healthcare). Single-cell suspensions were cultured for 4 weeks in X-Vivo15 Serum-Free Culture Medium (Lonza) containing 100 ng/mL recombinant human stem cell factor (SCF; PeproTech).

Two purified serum protein fractions, fetuin and serum albumin, will replace whole or dialyzed serum in supporting the growth of single S3 HeLa cells in an otherwise chemically defined nutrient solution.. In the serum-free medium, single S3 cells will form macroscopic colonies with essentially 100 per cent efficiency.. The generation time of S3 cells in the serum-free medium is approximately 50 per cent greater than that observed in an optimal, serum-containing medium.. All components of the serum-free medium are available commercially, except fetuin, which can easily be prepared in substantial quantities.. The problem of the purity of the protein preparations and of their possible roles in promoting cell growth is discussed.. ...
Abstract: From the emerging field of cellular therapy, there is an increasing demand for new media to provide optimal expansion of cells in culture. Hematopoietic stem cells have complex growth requirements and serum free media include over 50 components at concentrations from near zero to 7 g/L. Conventionally, media are developed empirically, either by depletion analysis or component addition to determine if culture productivity can be increased. This optimization process consumes valuable time and labour. We are investigating medium optimization through monitoring the gene expression profile of cells in culture based on the hypothesis that cells experiencing a particular limitation will exhibit a characteristic gene expression profile. We have analyzed gene expression of human TF-1 cells under nutritional stress and literature data on yeast under amino acid limitations. The expression levels of genes in pathways relevant to these stresses were monitored at several time points following ...
