Two to Tango: Dialog between Immunity and Stem Cells in Health and Disease.

08:00 EDT 1st November 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Two to Tango: Dialog between Immunity and Stem Cells in Health and Disease."

Stem cells regenerate tissues in homeostasis and under stress. By taking cues from their microenvironment or "niche," they smoothly transition between these states. Immune cells have surfaced as prominent members of stem cell niches across the body. Here, we draw parallels between different stem cell niches to explore the context-specific interactions that stem cells have with tissue-resident and recruited immune cells. We also highlight stem cells' innate ability to sense and respond to stress and the enduring memory that forms from such encounters. This fascinating crosstalk holds great promise for novel therapies in inflammatory diseases and regenerative medicine.

Characterization of embryonic stem cell-differentiated fibroblasts as mesenchymal stem cells with robust expansion capacity and attenuated innate immunity.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) isolated from adult tissues (Ad-MSCs) have shown great promise for use in regenerative medicine. However, their poor in vitro expansion capacity and tissue scarcity have ...

Defining Dysbiosis in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

In this issue of Immunity, Britton et al. (2019) demonstrate that the colonization of germ-free mice with microbiotas from inflammatory bowel disease patients induces an altered ratio of RORγt regul...

Who Will Win: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Versus Embryonic Stem Cells for β Cell Replacement and Diabetes Disease Modeling?

Ever since the reprogramming of human fibroblasts to induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), scientists have been trying to determine if hiPSCs can give rise to progeny akin to native terminally diff...

Won't You Be My Neighbor? Muscle Stem Cells Recruit Endothelial Cells to Their Niche.

The maintenance of a pool of quiescent satellite cells (muscle stem cells) is necessary for long-term muscle health. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Verma et al. (2018) show that satellite cells rec...

The Suppression Effect of Dendritic Cells Maturation by Adipose-derived Stem Cells through TGF-β1 Related Pathway.

Our previous studies demonstrated that adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) could modulate regulatory T cells (Treg) and prolong hind-limb allotransplant survival in vitro and in vivo. Dendritic cells (D...

Pilot and Feasibility Study of Reduced-Intensity Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant for MonoMAC

Background: - Stem cells are immature blood cells that grow in the bone marrow and produce all of the cells needed for normal blood and immunity. Stem cells can be taken from one ...

Infection and Tumour Antigen Cellular Therapy

This study is to test a new therapy for patients with acute myeloid leukaemia who are undergoing blood stem cell transplant. In this study, the investigators will take a small number of yo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from: http://www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/primer.htm)

Single cells that have the potential to form an entire organism. They have the capacity to specialize into extraembryonic membranes and tissues, the embryo, and all postembryonic tissues and organs. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from: http://www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/primer.htm)

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.

The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.
