Article: Phenotypical and functional characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow: comparison of culture using different media supplemented with human platelet lysate or fetal bovine serum.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells able to differentiate into several mesenchymal lineages, classically derived from bone marrow (BM) but potentially from umbilical cord blood (UCB). Although they are becoming a good tool for regenerative medicine, they usually need to be expanded in fetal bovine serum (FBS)-supplemented media. Human platelet lysate (HPL) has recently been proposed as substitute for safety reasons, but it is not yet clear how this supplement influences the properties of expanded MSCs. In the present study, we compared the effect of various media combining autologous HPL with or without FBS on phenotypic, proliferative and functional (differentiation, cytokine secretion profile) characteristics of human BM-derived MSCs. Despite less expression of adipogenic and osteogenic markers, MSCs cultured in HPL-supplemented media fully differentiated along osteoblastic, adipogenic, chondrogenic and vascular smooth muscle lineages. The analyses of particular specific proteins expressed during osteogenic differentiation (calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) and parathormone receptor (PTHR)) showed their decrease at D0 before any induction for MSC cultured with HPL mostly at high percentage (10%HPL). The cytokine dosage showed a clear increase of proliferation capacity and interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 secretion. This study shows that MSCs can be expanded in media supplemented with HPL that can totally replace FBS. HPL-supplemented media not only preserves their phenotype as well as their differentiation capacity, but also shortens culture time by increasing their growth rate.Stem Cell Research & Therapy 02/2012; 3(1):6. · 3.21 Impact Factor
Article: Immunophenotyping of hematopoietic progenitor cells: Comparison between cord blood and adult mobilized blood grafts.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the immunophenotype of hematopoietic progenitor cells from cord blood (CB) grafts (n = 39) in comparison with adult apheresis grafts (AG, n = 229) and pre-apheresis peripheral blood (PAPB) samples (n = 908) using flow cytometry analysis. First, we performed a qualitative analysis of CD34+ cell sub-populations in both CB and PAPB grafts using the standardized ISHAGE protocol and a wide panel of 20 monoclonal antibodies. Next, we studied some parameters, such as the age of mothers and the weight of newborns, which can influence the quality and the quantity of CD34+ cells from CB. We found that the percentage of apoptotic cells was high in CB in comparison to PAPB (PAPB: 4.6% ± 2.6% vs CB: 53.4% ± 5.2%, P < 0.001). In CB, the weight of newborn and the age of the mother have the influence on CD34+ cells. The follow-up of Ag CD133 in the ISHAGE double platform protocol in association with CD45, CD34 and the 7'AAD shows an equal rate between the two cell populations CD133+CD45+CD34+ high and CD34+CD45+ high with a higher percentage. So, is the inclusion of Ac CD133 necessary in the present panel included in the ISHAGE method? Last part, we showed a significant presence of interferon γ in CB in comparison to PAPB, the annexin showing the high number of apoptotic cells in CB. This study demonstrates that many different obstetric factors must be taken into account when processing and cryo-banking umbilical CB units for transplantation.World journal of stem cells. 11/2011; 3(11):104-12.
