Two distinct mechanisms mediate the involvement of bone marrow cells in islet remodeling: neogenesis of insulin-producing cells and support of islet recovery.

We have recently reported that small-sized bone marrow cells (BMCs) isolated by counterflow centrifugal elutriation and depleted of lineage markers (F...

The co-transplantation of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells reduced inflammation in intramuscular islet transplantation.
Although the muscle is one of the preferable transplant sites in islet transplantation, its transplant efficacy is poor. Here we attempted to determine whether an intramuscular co-transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could improve the out

Transdifferentiation of Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells into the Islet-Like Cells: the Role of Extracellular Matrix Proteins.
Pancreatic islet implantation has been recently shown to be an efficient method of treatment for type 1 diabetes. However, limited availability of donor islets reduces its use. Bone morrow would provide potentially unlimited source of stem cells for

Human Fallopian tube as a novel source of multipotent stem cells with potential for islet neogenesis.
Presence of stem cells in the female genital tract has been reported; however stem cell status of Fallopian tube remains unexplored. In the present study, we show for the first timean existence of stem cells in a Fallopian tube. A pure population of

Snf chromatin remodeling complexes modulates Pdx1 activity in islet β cells.
Pdx1 is a transcription factor of fundamental importance to pancreas formation and adult islet β cell function. However, little is known about the positive- and negative-acting coregulators recruited to mediate transcriptional control. Here, we isola

In vitro differentiation of human adipose tissue-derived stem cells into islet-like clusters promoted by islet neogenesis-associated protein pentadecapeptide.
Human adipose tissue-derived stem cells (hASCs) are considered an ideal tool for the supply of insulin-producing cells to treat diabetes mellitus, with high differentiation efficiency. Islet neogenesis-associated protein (INGAP) is an initiator of is

Involvement of bone marrow cells and neuroinflammation in hypertension.
Microglial activation in autonomic brain regions is a hallmark of neuroinflammation in neurogenic hypertension. Despite evidence that an impaired sympathetic nerve activity supplying the bone marrow (BM) increases inflammatory cells and decreases ang

Regenerating islet-derived protein 1 inhibits the activation of islet stellate cells isolated from diabetic mice.
Emerging evidence indicates that the islet fibrosis is attributable to activation of islet stellate cells (ISCs). In the present study, we compared the differences in biological activity of ISCs isolated from diabetic db/db and non-diabetic db/m mice

Survival of free and encapsulated human and rat islet xenografts transplanted into the mouse bone marrow.
Bone marrow was recently proposed as an alternative and potentially immune-privileged site for pancreatic islet transplantation. The aim of the present study was to assess the survival and rejection mechanisms of free and encapsulated xenogeneic isle

Isolation and characterization of islet stellate cells in rat.
The central role of PSCs in pancreatic fibrogenesis is well established. However, the mechanism responsible for the islet fibrosis presenting in the late stage of T2DM has not been fully elucidated. This study was designed to determine whether the en

Role of Islet Glucokinase, Glucose Metabolism, and Insulin Pathway in the Enhancing Effect of Islet Neogenesis-Associated Protein on Glucose-Induced Insulin Secretion.
To demonstrate the role of islet glucokinase, glucose metabolism, and intracellular insulin mediators in the enhancing effect of islet neogenesis-associated protein pentadecapeptide (INGAP-PP) on glucose-induced insulin secretion.
