Summary of "UM171 induces a homeostatic inflammatory-detoxification response supporting human HSC self-renewal."

Elucidation of the molecular cues required to balance adult stem cell self-renewal and differentiation is critical for advancing cellular therapies. Herein, we report that the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) self-renewal agonist UM171 triggers a balanced pro- and anti-inflammatory/detoxification network that relies on NFKB activation and protein C receptor-dependent ROS detoxification, respectively. We demonstrate that within this network, EPCR serves as a critical protective component as its deletion hypersensitizes primitive hematopoietic cells to pro-inflammatory signals and ROS accumulation resulting in compromised stem cell function. Conversely, abrogation of the pro-inflammatory activity of UM171 through treatment with dexamethasone, cAMP elevating agents or NFkB inhibitors abolishes EPCR upregulation and HSC expansion. Together, these results show that UM171 stimulates ex vivo HSC expansion by establishing a critical balance between key pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators of self-renewal.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A member of the CXC chemokine family that plays a role in the regulation of the acute inflammatory response. It is secreted by variety of cell types and induces CHEMOTAXIS of NEUTROPHILS and other inflammatory cells.

A small cluster of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery. The carotid body, which is richly supplied with fenestrated capillaries, senses the pH, carbon dioxide, and oxygen concentrations in the blood and plays a crucial role in their homeostatic control.

A spectrum of inflammation involving the female upper genital tract and the supporting tissues. It is usually caused by an ascending infection of organisms from the endocervix. Infection may be confined to the uterus (ENDOMETRITIS), the FALLOPIAN TUBES; (SALPINGITIS); the ovaries (OOPHORITIS), the supporting ligaments (PARAMETRITIS), or may involve several of the above uterine appendages. Such inflammation can lead to functional impairment and infertility.
