Neonatal Genetics of Gene Expression Reveal Potential Origins of Autoimmune and Allergic Disease Risk

Investigators mapped expression quantitative trait loci in resting myeloid cells and CD4+ T cells from cord blood samples, as well as in response to lipopolysaccharide or phytohemagglutinin stimulation, respectively.

Regeneration of the Rotator Cuff Tendon-to-Bone Interface Using Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells and Gradient Extracellular Matrix Scaffolds from Adipose Tissue in a Rat Model

Researchers investigated the efficacy of a biomimetic hydroxyapatite-gradient scaffold isolated from adipose tissue with umbilical cord derived MSCs on the regeneration of the structure of the tendone-to-bone interface by analyzing the histological and biomechanical changes in a rat repair model.

hUC-MSCs Ameliorated CUMS-Induced Depression by Modulating Complement C3 Signaling-Mediated Microglial Polarization during Astrocyte-Microglia Crosstalk

Human umbilical cord (hUC)-MSCs were administered into chronic unpredictable mild stress model mice through the tail vein once a week for four weeks. After the administration of hUC-MSCs, the depression-like and anxiety-like phenotypes, neuronal histopathology, synaptic-related protein expression and inflammatory index of the mice were assessed.

SARS-CoV-2 Entry Receptor ACE2 Is Expressed on Very Small CD45 Precursors of Hematopoietic and Endothelial Cells and in Response to Virus Spike Protein Activates the Nlrp3 Inflammasome

Investigators demonstrated for the first time that ACE2 and the entry-facilitating transmembrane protease TMPRSS2 were expressed on very small CD133+CD34+LinCD45 cells in human umbilical cord blood, which could be specified into functional hematopoietic stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells.
