Exosomes derived from human dermal papilla cells promote hair growth in cultured human hair follicles and augment the hair-inductive capacity of cultured dermal papilla spheres.

Exp Dermatol 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Immunology, School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea.

Dermal papillae (DP) play key roles in hair growth and regeneration by regulating follicular cell activity. Owing to the established roles of exosomes (Exos) in the regulation of cell functions, we investigated whether DP-derived Exos, especially those from three-dimensional (3D)-cultured DP cells, affect hair growth, cycling and regeneration. Exos derived from 3D DP (3D DP-Exos) promoted the proliferation of DP cells and outer root sheath (ORS) cells and increased the expression of growth factors (IGF-1, KGF and HGF) in DP cells.

Centre for Stem Cell Biology and Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, S10 2TN, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Auditory neuropathy (AN) is a form of sensorineural deafness specifically affecting the conduction of the nerve impulse from the cochlear hair cells to the auditory centres of the brain. As such, the condition is a potential clinical target for 'cell replacement therapy', in which a functioning auditory nerve is regenerated by transplanting an appropriated neural progenitor. In this review, we survey the current literature and examine possible experimental models for this condition, with particular reference to their compatibility as suitable hosts for transplantation.

Melanocyte Chitosan/Gelatin Composite Fabrication with Human Outer Root Sheath-Derived Cells to Produce Pigment.

Sci Rep 2019 Mar 26;9(1):5198. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, People's Republic of China.

The hair follicle serves as a melanocyte reservoir for both hair and skin pigmentation. Melanocyte stem cells (MelSCs) and melanocyte progenitors reside in the bulge/sub-bulge region of the lower permanent portion of the hair follicle and play a vital role for repigmentation in vitiligo. It would be beneficial to isolate MelSCs in order to further study their function in pigmentary disorders; however, due to the lack of specific molecular surface markers, this has not yet been successfully accomplished in human hair follicles (HuHF).

Genetical modification on adipose-derived stem cells facilitates facial nerve regeneration.

Aging (Albany NY) 2019 Feb;11(3):908-920

Department of Plastic Surgery, Shanghai Tenth People's Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine, Shanghai 200072, China.

Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have a demonstrative therapeutic potential in aging-associated facial nerve regeneration, in which ASCs work as a source of Schwann cells therapy as an alternative to autologous nerve grafts. However, the transplantation of ASCs may induce local fibrosis, which causes inferior outcome. Here, we aimed to use genetic modification approaches to reduce the fibrogenic properties of ASCs to improve their therapeutic effects on facial nerve regeneration. Read More

Laboratory of Skin Biology, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.

An international advisory group met at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland in 2017, to discuss a new classification system for the ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) that would integrate both clinical and molecular information. We propose the following, a working definition of the EDs building on previous classification systems and incorporating current approaches to diagnosis: EDs are genetic conditions affecting the development and/or homeostasis of two or more ectodermal derivatives, including hair, teeth, nails, and certain glands. Genetic variations in genes known to be associated with EDs that affect only one derivative of the ectoderm (attenuated phenotype) will be grouped as non-syndromic traits of the causative gene (e.

All mixed up?-genotype change after stem cell transplantation impeded verification of 21-year-old semen sample-a case report.

Int J Legal Med 2019 May 7;133(3):767-770. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Institute of Forensic Medicine, University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Arnold-Heller-Str. 12, Kiel, Germany.

We report a case of identity testing in which a patient charged us with the verification of a semen sample that he had donated and cryopreserved more than 20 years ago and now was suspecting of having been inadvertently interchanged. We found a non-match of the DNA profiles of the patient's blood and the semen samples but could show that this was due to the patient having received a stem cell transplantation of his full brother as part of a cancer therapy in 1997 which was not known to us when the samples were first tested. Also, the blood and semen samples exhibited a low probability of full sibship at first supporting the patient's suspicion that his semen sample might indeed have been interchanged. Read More

Rubella Virus-Associated Cutaneous Granulomatous Disease: a Unique Complication in Immune-Deficient Patients, Not Limited to DNA Repair Disorders.

J Clin Immunol 2019 Jan 3;39(1):81-89. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Center for Immunity and Immunotherapies, Seattle Children's Research Institute, Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

The association of immunodeficiency-related vaccine-derived rubella virus (iVDRV) with cutaneous and visceral granulomatous disease has been reported in patients with primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDs). The majority of these PID patients with rubella-positive granulomas had DNA repair disorders. To support this line of inquiry, we provide additional descriptive data on seven previously reported patients with Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) (n = 3) and ataxia telangiectasia (AT) (n = 4) as well as eight previously unreported patients with iVDRV-induced cutaneous granulomas and DNA repair disorders including NBS (n = 1), AT (n = 5), DNA ligase 4 deficiency (n = 1), and Artemis deficiency (n = 1).

Zhonghua Shao Shang Za Zhi 2018 Dec;34(12):840-843

Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery, the Fourth Medical Center of PLA General Hospital, Beijing 100048, China.

The Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery of the Fouth Medical Center of PLA General Hospital (the former 304th hospital of PLA) was established in 1958 as one of the earliest specialized burn departments in China. In the pioneering efforts of professor Sheng Zhiyong, an internationally renowned authority in burn surgery and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, several generations of the department represented by Zhu Zhaoming, GuoZhenrong, Chai Jiake, Yang Hongming, and Shen Chuan'an have worked hard from inheritance to innovation. The Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery has evolved from a simple treatment-oriented department to a military priority built discipline, a military burn research institute, a national key clinical specialty and a national key discipline which integrates treatment, scientific research, achievement transformation, and talent training.

Bone marrow-derived epithelial cells and hair follicle stem cells contribute to development of chronic cutaneous neoplasms.

Nat Commun 2018 12 13;9(1):5293. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, Columbia University, New York, 10032, NY, USA.

We used allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and a mouse multistage cutaneous carcinogenesis model to probe recruitment of bone marrow-derived epithelial cells (BMDECs) in skin tumors initiated with the carcinogen, dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA), and promoted with 12-O-tetradecanolyphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). BMDECs clustered in the lesional epithelium, expressed cytokeratins, proliferated, and stratified. We detected cytokeratin induction in plastic-adherent bone marrow cells (BMCs) cultured in the presence of filter-separated keratinocytes (KCs) and bone morphogenetic protein 5 (BMP5). Read More

Tissue engineering of human hair follicles using a biomimetic developmental approach.

Nat Commun 2018 12 13;9(1):5301. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Dermatology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY, 10032, USA.

Human skin constructs (HSCs) have the potential to provide an effective therapy for patients with significant skin injuries and to enable human-relevant drug screening for skin diseases; however, the incorporation of engineered skin appendages, such as hair follicles (HFs), into HSCs remains a major challenge. Here, we demonstrate a biomimetic approach for generation of human HFs within HSCs by recapitulating the physiological 3D organization of cells in the HF microenvironment using 3D-printed molds. Overexpression of Lef-1 in dermal papilla cells (DPC) restores the intact DPC transcriptional signature and significantly enhances the efficiency of HF differentiation in HSCs. Read More

Protective Mechanism of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Remodelling of the Skin Stem Cell Niche During Photoaging.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2018 11;51(5):2456-2471. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Background/aims: Skin photoaging is primarily caused by the functional attrition of skin stem cells. The skin stem cell niche plays an important role in maintaining stem cell survival and behaviour. In our study, we hypothesized that UVB irradiation induces skin photoaging by changing skin stem cell niches and that transferred adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) can remodel the niches by affecting the BMP signalling pathway and transdifferentiating into skin stem cells.
