S100A6 Is a Critical Regulator of Hematopoietic Stem Cells

Researchers showed that S100A6 regulated intracellular and mitochondria calcium buffering of HSC upon cytokine stimulation and have demonstrated that Akt activator SC79 reverted the levels of intracellular and mitochondrial calcium in HSC.

A Missense Mutation in the MLKL Brace Region Promotes Lethal Neonatal Inflammation and Hematopoietic Dysfunction

The authors isolated a mouse strain with a single missense mutation, MlklD139V, that altered the two-helix ‘brace’ that connects the killer four-helix bundle and regulatory pseudokinase domains.

ADP Receptor P2y12 Prevents Excessive Primitive Hematopoiesis in Zebrafish by Inhibiting Gata1

By using mass spectrometry combined with RNA sequencing, scientists showed that absence of P2y12 induced excessive erythropoiesis, evidenced by significantly increased expression of mature erythrocytes marker α-globin, β-globin.

Allogeneic Cord Blood Transfusions Prevent Fetal Haemoglobin Depletion in Preterm Neonates. Results of the CB-TrIP Study

Investigators monitored fetal haemoglobin levels in 25 preterm neonates until 36 weeks of post‐menstrual age; patients received repeated red blood cell (RBC) units from allogeneic cord blood (cord‐RBCs) or from adult donors, depending on whether cord‐RBCs were available.

Enhanced Collection of Phenotypic and Engrafting Human Cord Blood Hematopoietic Stem Cells at 4°C

Researchers demonstrated that collecting and processing of human cord blood at 4°C within minutes of the baby’s birth results in significantly enhanced numbers of rigorously defined phenotypic hematopoietic stem cell and self‐renewing NSG immune‐deficient mouse engrafting and SCID‐repopulating cells.
