Exendin ‑4 promotes osteogenic differentiation of adipose‑derived stem cells and facilitates bone repair.

Exendin‑4 promotes osteogenic differentiation of adipose‑derived stem cells and facilitates bone repair. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Oct 23;: Authors: Deng B, Zhu W, Duan Y, Hu Y, Chen X, Song S, Yi Z, Song Y Abstract Inflammation‑related bone defects pose a heavy burden on patients and orthopedic surgeons. Although stem‑cell‑based bone repair has developed rapidly, it is of great significance to characterize bio‑active molecules that facilitate bone regeneration. It is reported that a glucagon‑like peptide 1 receptor agonist, exendin‑4, promoted bone regeneration mediated by the transplantation of adipose‑derived stem cells in a metaphyseal defect mouse model of femur injury. However, the underlying mechanism is unclear. Bone imaging, immunohistochemistry real‑time PCR and western blot analysis were used in the present study, and the results revealed that exendin‑4 increased the transcription of the osteogenic differentiation‑related genes and induced osteogenic differentiation in situ. Furthermore, the present data obtained from sorted adipose‑derived stem cells revealed that exendin‑4 promoted osteogenic differentiation and inhibited adipogenic differentiation in vitro. These findings indicated that exendin‑4 facilitates osteogenic differentiation of transplanted adipose‑derived stem cells for bone repair and illuminated clinical prospects of both adipose‑derived stem cells and exendin‑4 in stem‑cell‑based bone d...

o AP Abstract Laminin is a heterotrimeric glycoprotein with a key role in the formation and maintenance of the basement membrane architecture and properties, as well as on the modulation of several biological functions, including cell adhesion, migration, differentiation and matrix-mediated signaling. In the central nervous system (CNS) laminin is differentially expressed during development and homeostasis, with an impact on the modulation of cell function and fate. Within neurogenic niches, laminin is one of the most important and well described extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Specifically, efforts have been...

This study demonstrates for the first time that senescent cells secrete functional LTs, significantly contributing to the LTs pool known to cause or exacerbate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Against Senolytics https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/against-senolytics/ There is no consensus in science that is so strong as to have no heretics. So here we have an interview with a naysayer on the matter of senolytic treatments, who argues that the loss of senescent cells in aged tissues will cause more harm to long-term health than the damage they will do by remaining. To be clear, I think this to be a ...

Authors: Zhang R, Ma J, Han J, Zhang W, Ma J Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative joint disease characterized by cartilage degradation, synovitis, subchondral bone sclerosis and osteophyte formation. Current therapeutic approaches for OA are not curative and only temporarily alleviate symptoms. In recent years, pre-clinical experiments and clinical trials have demonstrated that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) related therapy is a promising option for the treatment of cartilage lesions and OA. MSCs isolated from bone marrow (BMSCs) have been widely used in animal models and clinic practice to demonstrat...

ConclusionsMSCs transplantation proved to be a safe and tolerable therapy. Their potential therapeutic benefits were also validated. However, larger placebo controlled blinded clinical trials will be required to establish the long term safety and efficacy profile of these therapies for MS. Their translation into the clinical practice can provide a new hope for the patients of this highly debilitating disease.

Function Follows Form - A Review of Cardiac Cell Therapy. Circ J. 2019 Nov 13;: Authors: Nakamura K, Murry CE Abstract The investment of nearly 2 decades of clinical investigation into cardiac cell therapy has yet to change cardiovascular practice. Recent insights into the mechanism of cardiac regeneration help explain these results and provide important context in which we can develop next-generation therapies. Non-contractile cells such as bone marrow or adult heart derivatives neither engraft long-term nor induce new muscle formation. Correspondingly, these cells offer little functional benefit t...

In conclusion, high-dose NR induces the onset of WAT dysfunction, which may in part explain the deterioration of metabolic health. Towards a Rigorous Definition of Cellular Senescence https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/towards-a-rigorous-definition-of-cellular-senescence/ The accumulation of lingering senescent cells is a significant cause of aging, disrupting tissue function and generating chronic inflammation throughout the body. Even while the first senolytic drugs capable of selectively destroying these cells already exist, and while a number of biotech companies are working on the productio...

Abstract Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) have the ability to migrate to injury sites and facilitate tissue repair by promoting angiogenesis. However, the therapeutic effect of ADSCs from patients with diabetes is impaired due to oxidative stress. Given that diabetes is a group of metabolic disorders and mitochondria are a major source of reactive oxygen species (ROS), it is possible that mitochondrial ROS plays an important role in the induction of diabetic ADSC (dADSC) dysfunction. ADSCs isolated from diabetic mice were treated with mitoTEMPO, a mitochondrial ROS scavenger, or TEMPO, a universal ROS scavenger,...

Abstract Angiogenesis plays a central role in human physiology from reproduction and fetal development to wound healing and tissue repair/regeneration. Clinically relevant therapies are needed for promoting angiogenesis in order to supply oxygen and nutrients after transplantation, thus relieving the symptoms of ischemia. Increase in angiogenesis can lead to restoration of damaged tissues, thereby leading the way for successful tissue regeneration. Tissue regeneration is a broad field that has shown the convergence of various interdisciplinary fields, wherein living cells in conjugation with biomaterials have been...
