Transplanted BMSCs can migrate selectively into ischemic brain area and present a promising recovery from stroke [sup][15] SDF-1/CXCR4 axis has been identified as a critical mediator for stem cell migration.[sup][16] SDF-1 is a small molecule with alternatively spliced forms, belonging to the CXC chemokine family.[sup][17] In CNS, SDF-1 is triggered in the impaired tissue subsequent to ischemic attack,[sup][18] presents a significant role in orchestrating cells and promotes axon outgrowth and neurogenesis.[sup][8],[19] CXCR4 is widely expressed on BMSCs.[sup][4] The interaction of CXCR4 and SDF-1 directs BMSCs migrating toward ischemic brain, around which SDF-1 is presented abundantly,[sup][20] and inhibition of CXCR4 expression decreases BMSCs movement.[sup][21]
