Summary of "Mesenchymal stem cells differentiation: Mitochondria matter in osteogenesis or adipogenesis direction."

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have exhibited enormous therapeutic potential because of their indispensable regenerative, reparative, angiogenic, anti-apoptotic, and immunosuppressive properties. MSCs can best differentiate into mesodermal cell lineages including osteoblasts, adipocytes, muscle cells, endothelial cells and chondrocytes. Specific differentiation of MSCs could be induced through limited conditions. In addition to the relevant differentiation factors, drastic changes also occur in microenvironment to conduct it in an optimal manner for particular differentiation. Recent evidence suggests that the behavior of mitochondria participates in the regulating on direction and process of MSCs differentiation. Therefore, our current review focuses on how the behavior of mitochondria participates in both osteogenesis and adipogenesis of MSC differentiation. Besides that, in our current review, we try to provide an further understanding of the relationship between the behavior of mitochondria and the direction of MSC differentiation, which could optimize current cellular culturing protocols for benefit further tissue engineering by adjusting specific conditions of stem cells.

Extracellular matrixes (ECMs) are dynamically altered and remodeled during tissue development. How the dynamic remodeling of ECM affects stem cell functions remains poorly understood due to the diffic...

CoCl induced hypoxia enhances osteogenesis of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells through cannabinoid receptor 2.

This study aims to investigate the role of Cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) on osteogenesis of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) under hypoxia.

Effect of mechanical loading and substrate elasticity on the osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are highly sensitive to biomechanics of their extra-cellular environment. Generally, a higher elasticity of culture substrates can drive cells into the osteogenic lineage...

Sensory nerves regulate mesenchymal stromal cell lineage commitment by tuning sympathetic tones.

Sensory nerve was recently identified as being involved in regulation of bone mass accrual. We previously discovered that PGE2 secreted by osteoblastic cells could activate sensory nerve EP4 receptor ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).

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.

Cells that can develop into distinct mesenchymal tissue such as BONE; TENDONS; MUSCLES; ADIPOSE TISSUE; CARTILAGE; NERVE TISSUE; and BLOOD and BLOOD VESSELS.

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:
