Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions regulate normal gut epithelial homeostasis and have a putative role in inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer pathogenesis. Epimorphin is a mesenchymal and myofibroblast protein with antiproliferative, promorphogenic effects in intestinal epithelium. We previously showed that deletion of

Neutrophils represent an important source of autoantigens for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody associated with vasculitis. To date, two cytoskeletal proteins, vinculin and vimentin, have been reported to be expressed on the cell surfaces of activated macrophages, platelets, and apoptotic T lymphocytes.

While adult stem cells can be induced to transdifferentiate into multiple lineages of cells or tissues, their plasticity and utility for human therapy remains controversial. In this chapter, we describe methods for the transdifferentiation of human adipose tissue-derived stem cells
