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

Ectodermal dysplasias: Classification and organization by phenotype, genotype and molecular pathway.

Am J Med Genet A 2019 Mar 31;179(3):442-447. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

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.

Imaging Bioluminescent Exogenous Stem Cells in the Intact Guinea Pig Cochlea.

Anat Rec (Hoboken) 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Auditory Neurobiology Laboratory, Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Stem-cell-based therapy may be used to replace damaged or lost neurons in the cochlear nerve of patients suffering from severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss. In order to achieve functional recovery in future clinical trials, knowledge about survival of grafted cells and their differentiation into functional neurons is a prerequisite. This calls for non-invasive in vivo visualization of cells and long-term monitoring of their survival and fate after cochlear transplantation. Read More

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 Jan 7. 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

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.

UVB-induced depletion of donor-derived dendritic cells prevents allograft rejection of immune-privileged hair follicles in humanized mice.

Am J Transplant 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Dendritic cells (DCs) are key targets for immunity and tolerance induction; they present donor antigens to recipient T cells by donor- and recipient-derived pathways. Donor-derived DCs, which are critical during the acute posttransplant period, can be depleted in graft tissue by forced migration via ultraviolet B light (UVB) irradiation. Here, we investigated the tolerogenic potential of donor-derived DC depletion through in vivo and ex vivo UVB preirradiation (UV) combined with the injection of anti-CD154 antibody (Ab) into recipients in an MHC-mismatched hair follicle (HF) allograft model in humanized mice.
