Lineage Tracing and Cell Potential of Postnatal Single Progenitor Cells In Vivo

Publication date: Available online 19 September 2019Source: Stem Cell ReportsAuthor(s): María Figueres-Oñate, Mario Sánchez-Villalón, Rebeca Sánchez-González, Laura López-MascaraqueSummaryUnderstanding the contribution of adult neural progenitor cells (NPCs) and their lineage potential is a great challenge in neuroscience. To reveal progenitor diversity and cell-lineage relationships of postnatal NPCs in the subventricular zone (SVZ), we performed in vivo lineage-tracing genetic analysis using the UbC-StarTrack. We determined the progeny of single SVZ-NPCs, the number of cells per clone, the dispersion of sibling cells, and the cell types within clones. Long-term analysis revealed that both the cell-dispersion pattern and number of cells comprising clones varied depending on the glial/neuronal nature of sibling cells. Sibling-olfactory interneurons were primarily located within the same layer, while sibling-glial cells populated SVZ-adjacent areas. Sibling astrocytes and interneurons did not form big clones, whereas oligodendroglial-lineage clones comprised the largest clones originated in adult brains. These results demonstrate the existence of SVZ postnatal bipotential progenitors that give rise to clones widely dispersed across the olfactory bulb and SVZ-adjacent areas.Graphical Abstract

AbstractLactotroph adenomas, also called prolactinomas and prolactin-secreting adenomas, constitute nearly 80% of functioning pituitary tumors and about 30 –50% of all adenomas in the clinical practice. Lactotroph adenomas occur in the general population at a prevalence of 45/100,000, are more common in women, but also involve men and children of both sexes. Most lactotroph adenomas are microadenomas occurring in reproductive-age women who present wi th oligo/amenorrhea, galactorrhea, and infertility. In men and elderly women, lactotroph adenomas are usually macroadenomas and are most commonly associated with symptom...

Exosomes derived from human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (HUCMSCs) expressing microRNAs (miRs) have been highlighted as important carriers for gene or drug therapy. Hence, this study aimed to explore the role of exosomal miR-148b-3p from HUCMSCs in breast cancer. Clinical samples subjected to RT-qPCR detection revealed that miR-148b-3p was poorly expressed, while tripartite motif 59 (TRIM59) was highly expressed in breast cancer tissues. Online analyses available at miRanda, TargetScan, and miRbase databases revealed that miR-148b-3p could bind to TRIM59, while dual-luciferase reporter gene assay further verified ...

AbstractThe use of hypomethylating agents (HMAs) prior to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) was still controversial. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the impact of hypomethylation therapy before HSCT, with a special focus on long-term outcome. Databases, including PubMed, Embase Ovid, and the Cochrane Library, were searched for studies published up to 4 November 2018. Overall survival (OS) was selected as the primary endpoint, and relapse-free survival (RFS) was the secondary endpoint. A total of 6 cohort studies were included in the final meta-analysis. Our res...

The stem cells responsible for maintaining muscle tissue decline in function with age, becoming ever less active. This loss of function contributes to sarcopenia, the characteristic decline in muscle mass and strength that takes place with advancing age. Researchers here report on investigations of the role of adipogenic progenitor cells in the decline of muscle stem cell function. These progenitor cells are a necessary part of the muscle stem cell niche, but their behavior changes for the worse with advancing age, disrupting the balance of intracellular signaling needed for stem cell function. Declining stem cell...

ConclusionsThe experience of changes in taste was common yet highly variable in its presentation and resultant changes in food preferences. Taste changes did not always resolve soon after treatment completion. Future research should identify ways to manage this symptom in pediatric cancer patients.

In this study, we evaluated the 5mC content of single cell human primordial germ cell-like cells (hPGCLCs) generated from a male human embryonic stem cell line (UCLA2, 46XY). tilizing a strand-specific, enzymatic based method of sequencing, we compared the 5mC content of the plus strand relative to the whole chromosome. We evaluated just specified hPGCLCs, at day 4 of differentiation (D4) and then D4 hPGCLCs that were cultured on a feeder layer for additional 10 days (D4C10).
