LncRNA ENST00000563492 Promoting the Osteogenesis-Angiogenesis Coupling Process in Bone Mesenchymal Stem Cells (BMSCs) by Functions as a ceRNA for miR-205-5p

Investigators found that lncRNA ENST00000563492 was downregulated in bone nonunion tissues. LncRNA ENST00000563492 promoted osteogenic differentiation of BMSCs through upregulating the expression of CDH11.

Abstract

Effect of Donor Age and 3D-Cultivation on Osteogenic Differentiation Capacity of Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity revealed highest levels in 3D of old adipose-derived MSCs after 14 days. ALP expression showed significant rises in old versus young cells in 2D.

miR-200b in Heme Oxygenase-1-Modified Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Derived Exosomes Alleviates Inflammatory Injury of Intestinal Epithelial Cells by Targeting High Mobility Group Box 3

Researchers identified that exosomes derived from HO-1/BMMSCs played an important role in alleviating the inflammatory injury of intestinal epithelial cells (IECs). The mechanism was related to miR-200b targeting the abnormally increased expression of the high mobility group box 3 (HMGB) gene in IECs induced by inflammatory injury. The reduced level of HMGB3 then decreased the inflammatory injury.

Abstract

miR-132-3p Priming Enhances the Effects of Mesenchymal Stromal Cell-Derived Exosomes on Ameliorating Brain Ischemic Injury

Mesenchymal stromal cell-derived exosomes could deliver their carried miR-132-3p into target ECs, which functionally downregulated the target protein RASA1, while upregulated the expression of Ras and the downstream PI3K phosphorylation.

NIH’s New Sexual-Harassment Rules Are Still Too Weak, Say Critics

On 24 June, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) described the actions it will take when alerted to reports of unsafe behavior, including restricting scientists from peer-review panels, holding back pending grants and refusing university requests to transfer funding to other institutions in cases where a harasser changes jobs.
