Platelet Lysate Induces Chondrogenic Differentiation of Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Regulating the lncRNA H19/miR-29b-3p/SOX9 Axis

Platelet lysate (PL) had been shown to induce chondrogenic differentiation of human umbilical cord‐derived MSCs Scientists investigated whether long non‐coding RNA H19 was involved in this process. Human umbilical cord MSCs were isolated, identified, and cultured in 5% PL‐supplemented chondrogenic differentiation medium

IL-8/CXCR2 Mediates Tropism of Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells toward CD133+/CD44+ Colon Cancer Stem Cells

Scientists compared the effects of three tissue‐derived mesenchynal stem cells (MSCs) in vivo on colon tumor xenograft growth. Then, they analyzed the tropism of bone marrow‐derived MSCs toward normal intestinal epithelial cells, parental colon cancer cells, CD133/CD44, and CD133+/CD44+ colon cancer cells in vitro.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells-Secreted Exosome Promotes Chemoresistance in Breast Cancer via Enhancing miR-21-5p-Mediated S100A6 Expression

The authors investigated the effect of a standard of care chemotherapeutic agent Doxorubicin (Dox) on MSC-exo and its contribution to the development of Dox resistance in breast cancer cells (BCs). They found that the exosome secreted by Dox-treated MSC induced a higher degree of Dox resistance in BCs when compared with non-treated MSC-exo.
