Polycaprolactone Fibrous Electrospun Scaffolds Reinforced with Copper Doped Wollastonite for Bone Tissue Engineering Applications

The synthesized polycaprolactone/metal ion-wollastonite scaffold was biocompatible to mouse mesenchymal stem cells and enhanced the mRNA expressionof osteoblastic specific marker genes including alkaline phosphatase and type I collagen and major transcription factor Runx2 in the presence of osteogenic medium indicates the osteoconductive nature of the scaffolds.

Modified Parylene-N Films As Chemical Microenvironments for Differentiation and Spheroid Formation of Osteoblast Cells

The influence of parylene N film on the spheroid formation of osteoblast-like cells was determined and compared with that of high-hydrophilicity microenvironments. The formation of spheroids and regulation of differentiation in human mesenchymal stem cells on parylene N film was demonstrated.

Microenvironment-Responsive Immunoregulatory Electrospun Fibers for Promoting Nerve Function Recovery

With the capability of directly responding to the acidic microenvironment at focal areas followed by triggered release of the IL-4 plasmid-loaded liposomes within a few hours to suppress the release of inflammatory cytokines and promote neural differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells in vitro, the microenvironment-responsive immunoregulatory electrospun fibers were implanted into acute spinal cord injury rats.

EZH2 Reduction Is an Essential Mechanoresponse for the Maintenance of Super-Enhancer Polarization Against Compressive Stress in Human Periodontal Ligament Stem Cells

Researchers interrogated compressive force-elicited transcriptomic changes in mesenchymal stem cells purified from human periodontal ligament, and identified H3K27me3 and E2F signatures populated within upregulated and weakly downregulated genes.

Potential of Mesenchymal Stem Cells as Topical Immunomodulatory Cell Therapies for Ocular Surface Inflammatory Disorders

Researchers highlight considerations, including whether the source of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) isolation impacts the efficacy and safety of the therapy, in addition to assessing the feasibility of MSC topical application to the cornea and ocular surface through analysis of potential scaffolds and cell carriers for application to the eye.
