[Scientific Reports] Human CB-MSCs were isolated and characterized using flow cytometry. Cell differentiation has been induced by combining retinoic acid and sonic hedgehog in a two-step protocol for 14 days.
[Nature Genetics] By monitoring epigenomes, transcriptomes and lineages with single-cell resolution, scientists showed that the repressive histone mark trimethylation of histone H3 at lysine 27 (H3K27me3) regulated cell fate at the onset of chemotherapy.
[Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America] Scientists identified a membrane receptor for progesterone/17-hydroxyprogesterone and delineated the mechanisms by which GPR126 participated in potential tumor progression in TNBC.
[Seminars in Cell & Developmental Biology] Scientists examine current knowledge of early human placental development, discuss the critical role of the maternal endometrium and of the fetal-maternal dialogue in pregnancy success, and they explore the latest models of trophoblast and endometrial stem cells.
[Placenta] Utilizing human models including in vitro and ex vivo scientists demonstrated robust nanoparticle uptake, transgene expression, nutrient transporter regulation without transfer to the fetus.
[British Journal of Pharmacology] In vivo, investigators studied the role of Caspase-11 in several angiogenesis mouse models using Caspase-11 wild-type and knockout mice. In vitro, scientists detected the effects of Caspase-4 on endothelial functions and Notch signaling by depleting or overexpressing Caspase-4 in HUVECs.
[Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America] Scientists identified the reversible SUMOylation of FGF receptor 1 (FGFR1) as an intrinsic fine-tuned mechanism in coordinating endothelial angiogenic signaling during neovascularization.
