Loss of Ephrin B2 Receptor (EPHB2) Sets Lipid Rheostat by Regulating Proteins DGAT1 and ATGL Inducing Lipid Droplet Storage in Prostate Cancer Cells

Knockdown strategies for EPHB2 were performed in prostate cancer cells to analyze the impact on the net lipid balance, proliferation, triacylglycerol-regulating proteins, effect on lipid droplet (LD) biogenesis, and intracellular localization of LDs.

Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cells as a Valuable Source for the Treatment of Immune-Mediated Disorders

The authors discuss the therapeutic applications of mesenchymal stem/stromal cell (MSC) secretome and its biomedical aspects related to immune-mediated conditions. Sources for MSC extraction, their migration and homing properties, therapeutic molecules released by MSCs, and the pathways and molecular mechanisms possibly involved in the exceptional immunoregulatory competence of MSCs are discussed.

Bone Marrow Stromal Cells from MDS and AML Patients Show Increased Adipogenic Potential with Reduced Delta-Like-1 Expression

Researchers established a stringent flow cytometric protocol for the prospective isolation of a CD73+ CD105+ CD271+ bone marrow (BM) stromal cell subpopulation from uncultivated cryopreserved BM of myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia patients as well as age-matched healthy donors.

Down Regulation of SUV39H1 and CITED2 Exerts Additive Effect on Promoting Adipogenic Commitment of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Through a siRNA-based high throughput screen that identifies adipogenic regulators whose expression knockdown leads to enhanced adipogenic differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells, two new regulators, SUV39H1, a histone methyltransferase that catalyzes H3K9Me3, and CITED2, a CBP/p300 interacting transactivator with Glu/Asp rich carboxy-terminal domain 2 were uncovered.

Single-Cell Analysis Shows That Adipose Tissue of Persons with Both HIV and Diabetes Is Enriched for Clonal, Cytotoxic, and CMV-Specific CD4+ T Cells

Persons with HIV and diabetes have a high proportion of CX3CR1+ GPR56+ CD57+ (C-G-C+) CD4+ T cells in adipose tissue, a subset of which are cytomegalovirus specific, whereas individuals with diabetes but without HIV have predominantly CD69+ CD4+ T cells.
