Large-Scale Analysis of MicroRNA Expression in Motor Neuron-Like Cells Derived from Human Umbilical Cord Blood Mesenchymal Stem Cells

[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.

H3K27me3 Conditions Chemotolerance in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

[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.

Progesterone Activates GPR126 to Promote Breast Cancer Development via the Gi Pathway

[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.

Human Placental Development and Function

[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.

Interventions for Placental Insufficiency and Fetal Growth Restriction

[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.

Essent Biologics Launches Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Regenerative Medicine, Biopharmaceutical and Cell Therapy Research

[Essent Biologics™ (PR NewsWire, Inc.)] Essent Biologics™ announced the launch of its human mesenchymal stem cells for regenerative medicine, biopharmaceutical and cell therapy research.


Caspase-4/11 is Critical for Angiogenesis by Repressing Notch1 Signaling via Inhibiting γ-Secretase Activity

[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.

FGFR1 SUMOylation Coordinates Endothelial Angiogenic Signaling in Angiogenesis

[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.

MCPIP1 Promotes Cell Proliferation, Migration and Angiogenesis of Glioma via VEGFA-Mediated ERK Pathway

Scientists report that overexpressed MCPIP1 in glioma cells is a boost of angiogenesis. [nan] AbstractGraphical Abstract
