The researchers were also able to establish the molecular identity of another cell type in the vascular wall, a kind of connective tissue cell located in a narrow space just outside the brain's blood vessels.
Muscle cells and connective tissue cells are derived from a common mesencymal stem cells (Sordella et al., 2003), which can be committed to a myogenic lineage or connective tissue cell types such as fibroblasts and adipocytes.
Epithelial and connective tissue cell CTGF/CCN2 expression in gingival fibrosis.
An earlier work by Pender et al (19) did not describe any paravascular location but identified two distinct progenitor connective tissue cell populations in the rat gingiva; one population was located in the mid papilla region and the other close to the epithelial attachment and cementum.
During the proliferative phase, several cell types including fibroblasts (the primary connective tissue cell type), keratinocytes (epidermal skin cells) and endothelial cells (the primary vascular cell type) proliferate dramatically and are crucial in promoting healing of the wound.
The research, led by Professor Douglas Fearon, determined that this barrier is created by a chemokine protein, CXCL12, which is produced by a specialised kind of connective tissue cell, called a carcinoma-associated fibroblast, or CAF.
"First, it prepares the connective tissue cell for reprogramming, later, however, Oct4 appears to prevent destabilized cells from becoming brain stem cells" reports the Bonn stem cell researcher.
Shiwani Moghe, a graduate student at Texas Woman's University, decided to evaluate whether blueberry polyphenols play a role in adipocyte differentiation, the process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires specialized features of an adipocyte, an animal connective tissue cell specialized for the synthesis and storage of fat.
Since these cells can be derived from dermal fibroblasts (a type of connective tissue cell that provides the structural frame-work for animal tissues and plays a critical role in wound healing), they can be obtained with relative ease, without the need for invasive procedures required for obtaining other kinds of stem cells.
"First, it prepares the connective tissue cell for reprogramming, later, however, Oct 4 appears to prevent destabilized cells from becoming brain stem cells" reports the Bonn stem cell researcher.
Small bits of RNA called microRNAs that can influence the way a cell's genes are turned on and off can single-handedly cause a connective tissue cell from human skin to transform into a nerve cell, new research shows.
Release date- 26082019 - The first evidence was recently presented demonstrating how the immune system can be controlled by directly reprogramming connective tissue cells into immune cells.
