Alternative Splicing in Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation

The authors highlight the key alternative splicing (AS) events that modulate MSC differentiation to major osteocytes, chondrocytes, and adipocytes, and discuss the regulatory mechanisms by which AS is regulated.

Functional Changes in Decidual Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cells are Associated with Spontaneous Onset of Labour

Decidual MSCs displayed stem cell-like properties and were of maternal origin. Important cell properties and lipid profiles were assessed and compared between spontaneous onset of labor- and not in labor-decidual MSCs.

Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Improve Cognitive Impairment in an Alzheimer’s Disease Model by Increasing the Expression of MicroRNA-146a in Hippocampus

Investigators showed that intracerebroventricularly injected bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells improved cognitive impairment in Alzheimer’s disease model mice by ameliorating astrocytic inflammation as well as synaptogenesis.

miR-132-3p Priming Enhances the Effects of Mesenchymal Stromal Cell-Derived Exosomes on Ameliorating Brain Ischemic Injury

Mesenchymal stromal cell-derived exosomes could deliver their carried miR-132-3p into target ECs, which functionally downregulated the target protein RASA1, while upregulated the expression of Ras and the downstream PI3K phosphorylation.

Co‑Transplantation of Tonsil‑Derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in Bone Marrow Transplantation Promotes Thymus Regeneration and T Cell Diversity following Cytotoxic Conditioning

Researchers found that the co‑transplantation of tonsil‑derived mesenchymal stromal cells (T‑MSCs) with bone marrow‑derived cells (BMCs) accelerated the recovery of involuted thymuses in mice following partial pre‑bone marrow transplantation conditioning with busulfan‑cyclophosphamide treatment, possibly by inducing FMS‑like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand and fibroblast growth factor 7 production in T‑MSCs.

MiR-200b in Heme Oxygenase-1-Modified Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Derived Exosomes Alleviates Inflammatory Injury of Intestinal Epithelial Cells by Targeting High Mobility Group Box 3

Scientists identified that exosomes derived from HO-1/BMMSCs played an important role in alleviating the inflammatory injury of intestinal epithelial cells (IECs). The mechanism was related to miR-200b targeting the abnormally increased expression of the high mobility group box 3 (HMGB) gene in IECs induced by inflammatory injury. The reduced level of HMGB3 then decreases the inflammatory injury.

Dose and Duration of Interferon γ Pre-Licensing Interact with Donor Characteristics to Influence the Expression and Function of Indoleamine-2,3-Dioxygenase in Mesenchymal Stromal Cells

Scientists found that across three human MSC donors, MSCs increased their expression of indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase in response to both increased dose of IFNγ and duration of pre-licensing.
