General description

Bone marrow is the major blood creating organ, but in addition to supporting hematopoietic growth and differentiation, marrow stromal cells can be induced to produce cells of other connective tissues, such as bone, cartilage, and fat, as well as cells from neuroectodermal (neurons) and endodermal (hepatocytes) lineages. The potential of HMSCs to maintain multipotency and proliferate extensively in vitro provides new avenues for cell-based therapy in the restoration of damaged or diseased tissue.RMSC from Cell Applications, Inc. have been used to demonstrate that TGF-β stimulates production of MCP-1 by vascular smooth muscle cells, which attracts bone marrow stromal cells (Zhang, 2009); and show that their migration can be stimulated by VPA and lithium through HDAC-CXCR4 and GSK-3β-MMP-9, respectively (Tsai, 2010); to investigate the therapeutic potential of marrow stromal stem cells depending on the extracellular matrix properties (Gershlak, 2013; Sullivan, 2014); and demonstrate that combination of low-level laser therapy and transplantation of marrow stromal stem cells results in greater functional recovery after nerve crush injury (Yang, 2013). Finally, HMSC were used to develop methods to direct stem cell differentiation by altering physical topography of the substrate (Brammer, 2011), and to design surface materials to control cell-adhesion properties (Sommani, 2010; Tsuji, 2011)
