DNA damage in dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells: An in vitro study

Jaime Sardá Aramburú Junior; Tiago Luis Eilers Treichel; Saulo Tadeu Lemos Pinto Filho; Sergio Alexandre Gerhke; Alencar Kolinski Machado; Francine Carla Cadoná; Ivana Beatrice Mânica da Cruz; Ney Luis Pippi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , December 2018, , Pages 293-299

  The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential use of a DNA comet assay, DNA fragmentation fluorimetric assay and reactive oxygen species levels as potential biomarkers of genome conditions of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) isolated from dog canine teeth. Mesenchymal stem cells were isolated from ...  Read More

Comparison of the effects of progesterone and 17 β-estradiol on Schwann cell markers expression in rat adipose-derived stem cells

Homayoun Naderain; Neda Khanlarkhani; Iraj Ragerdi Kashani; Amirabbas Atlasi; Mohammad Ali Atlasi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , December 2018, , Pages 307-313

  Steroids promote the myelination and regeneration in the peripheral nervous system. Whereas, little is known about the inducing effects by which the hormones exert their effects on Schwann cells differentiation. This could be revealed by the expression of Schwann cell markers in adipose-derived stem ...  Read More

Effect of lysophosphatidic acid on the follicular development and the ‎expression of lysophosphatidic acid receptor genes during in vitro culture of ‎mouse ovary

Neda Abedpour; Mojdeh Salehnia; Nassim Ghorbanmehr

Volume 9, Issue 1 , March 2018, , Pages 59-66

  Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) known as a serum-derived growth factor, is involved in several cell physiological functions in the female reproductive system including: oocyte maturation, in vitro fertilization and embryo implantation by its transmembrane G protein-coupled receptors. The aim of the present ...  Read More

Rat adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells aging reduction by zinc sulfate under extremely low frequency electromagnetic field exposure is associated with increased telomerase reverse transcriptase gene expression

Ezzatollah Fathi; Raheleh Farahzadi; Reza Rahbarghazi; Hossein Samadi Kafil; Rahman Yolmeh

Volume 8, Issue 2 , June 2017, , Pages 89-96

  Zinc as an essential trace element was reported to be involved in regulation of the growth and aging of cells. In this study, rat adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells were exposed to extremely low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF-EMF) of 50 Hz and 20 mT to evaluate whether exposure to ELF-EMF in ...  Read More

Effect of extracellular matrix on testosterone production during in vitro culture of bovine testicular cells

Vahid Akbarinejad; Parviz Tajik; Mansoureh Movahedin; Reza Youssefi

Volume 8, Issue 1 , March 2017, , Pages 7-13

  Testosterone is believed to play a significant role in spermatogenesis, but its contribution to the process of spermatogenesis is not completely understood. Given that extracellular matrix (ECM) facilitates differentiation of spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) during culture, the present study was conducted ...  Read More

The role of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) in differentiation of bovine spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs)

Vahid Akbarinejad; Parviz Tajik; Mansoureh Movahedin; Reza Youssefi

Volume 7, Issue 2 , June 2016, , Pages 149-153

  The receptors 1 and 2 of fibroblast growth factor (FGFR1 and FGFR2, respectively) have been observed in all types of testicular cells. Culture on extracellular matrix (ECM) has been observed to lead to initiation of differentiation in spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs). The present study was carried out ...  Read More

Evaluation of tendon healing using fibroblast like synoviocytes in rabbits: A biomechanical study

Mahboobeh Azad-Tirgan; Farshid Sarrafzadeh-Rezaei; Hassan Malekinejad; Rahim Hobbenaghi; Behnam Heshmatian

Volume 7, Issue 1 , March 2016, , Pages 21-26

  Tendon never restores the complete biological and mechanical properties after healing. Several techniques are available for tissue-engineered biological augmentation for tendon healing like stem cells. Recently, synovium has been investigated as a source of cells for tissue engineering. In the present ...  Read More

In vitro histological investigation of interactions between rat decellularized large intestine scaffold and human adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells

Somayeh Naderi; Malihe Akbarzadeh Niaki; Nasser Mahdavi Shahri; Maryam Moghaddam Matin; Masoud Fereidoni; Fatemeh Naseri

Volume 6, Issue 3 , September 2015, , Pages 251-255

  The aim of this study was to investigate the interactions between rat intestine decellularized scaffold and human adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells. Rat large intestine was dissected in fragments and decellularized by physicochemical methods. The scaffolds were loaded by human adipose derived mesenchymal ...  Read More
