A Chondrosphere-Based Scaffold Free Approach to Manufacture an In Vitro Articular Cartilage Model

Human articular chondrocytes and immortalised mesenchymal cells differentiated in chondrocytes were cultured in round-bottom 96-well plates to produce multicellular spheroids and their growth kinetics and viability was evaluated over seven days of culture.

Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium SPI-1 and SPI-2 Shape the Global Transcriptional Landscape in a Human Intestinal Organoid Model System

Scientists used a human intestinal organoid model to define host transcriptional responses to S. Typhimurium infection, also determining host pathways dependent on Salmonella pathogenicity island- 1- and -2-encoded type 3 secretion systems

IL-1R1–Dependent Signaling Coordinates Epithelial Regeneration in Response to Intestinal Damage

The authors reported that after distinct types of intestinal epithelial damage, IL-1R1 signaling in GREM1+ mesenchymal cells increased production of R-spondin 3, a Wnt agonist required for intestinal stem cell self-renewal.

Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase Usp53 Regulates Osteoblast versus Adipocyte Lineage Commitment

Using ChIP-Seq against NACA in parallel with RNA-sequencing, investigators report the identification of Ubiquitin Specific Peptidase 53 (Usp53) as a target gene of parathyroid hormone-activated nascent polypeptide associated complex and coregulator alpha in osteoblasts.

Progressive and Coordinated Mobilization of the Skeletal Muscle Niche throughout Tissue Repair Revealed by Single-Cell Proteomic Analysis

Scientists developed a mass cytometry panel to investigate the dynamic nature of muscle regeneration at a single-cell level. Using the panel, they identified early changes in the proteome of stressed satellite and niche cells.

Photobiomodulation Therapy Increases Collagen II after Tendon Experimental Injury

Photobiomodulation effectively interfered in tendon tissue repair after injury by stimulating mesenchymal cell proliferation and the synthesis of collagen type II, which was suggested to provide structural support to the interstitial tissues during the healing process of the Achilles tendon.

Isolating and Targeting the Real-Time Plasticity and Malignant Properties of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition in Cancer

3D high-content screening of ~23,000 compounds using dual-reporter mesenchymal SW620 tumor organoids identified small molecule probes that modulate EMT, and a subset of probes that effectively induced MET.
