Plasmodesmata form intercellular channels which ensure the transport of various molecules during embryogenesis and postembryonic growth. However, high permeability of plasmodesmata may interfere with the establishment of auxin maxima, which are required for cellular patterning and the development of distinct tissues. Therefore, diffusion through plasmodesmata is not always desirable and the symplastic continuum must be broken up to induce or accomplish some developmental processes. Many data sho...

Obesity increases morbidity and resource utilization in sepsis patients. The immune response in sepsis transitions from an endotoxin-responsive hyper- to an endotoxin-tolerant hypo-inflammatory phase. The majority of sepsis mortality occurs during hypo-inflammation. We reported prolonged hypo-inflammation with increased sirtuin 2 (SIRT2) expression in obese-septic mice. The effect of direct exposure to high-fat/free fatty acid (FFA) and the role of SIRT2 in immune cells during the transition to ...

Milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 (MFG-E8) is a secreted glycoprotein that regulates tissue homeostasis, possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties, and protects against tissue injury. The human pancreas expresses MFG-E8; however, the role of MFG-E8 in the pancreas remains unclear. We examined the expression of MFG-E8 in the pancreas at baseline and during cerulein-induced acute pancreatitis in mice and determined whether MFG-E8 attenuates the progression of pancreatitis, a serious inflammatory c...

Cell replacement therapy using mesenchymal (MSC) and other stem cells has been evaluated for diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. This approach has significant limitations, including few cells integrated, aberrant growth, and surgical complications. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Exosomes/Extracellular Vesicles (MSC EVs), which include exosomes and microvesicles, are an emerging alternative, promoting immunomodulation, repair, and regeneration by mediating MSC’s paracrine effects. For the clinical translat...

The clustered DNA lesions (CDLs) are a characteristic feature of ionizing radiation’s impact on the human genetic material. CDLs impair the efficiency of cellular repair machinery, especially base excision repair (BER). When CDLs contain a lesion repaired by BER (e.g., apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) sites) and a bulkier 5′,8-cyclo-2′-deoxypurine (cdPu), which is not a substrate for BER, the repair efficiency of the first one may be affected. The cdPus’ influence on the efficiency of nuclear BER in x...
Despite vaccination and antivirals, influenza remains a communicable disease of high burden, with limited therapeutic options available to patients that develop complications. Here, we report the development and preclinical characterization of Adipose Stromal Cell (ASC) concentrated secretome (CS), generated by process adaptable to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) standards. We demonstrate that ASC-CS limits pulmonary histopathological changes, infiltration of inflammatory cells, prot...

Exploring mechanisms of drug resistance to targeted small molecule drugs is critical for an extended clinical benefit in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients carrying activating epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations. Here, we identified constitutive cell proliferation regulating inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) in the HCC4006rErlo0.5 NSCLC cell line adapted to erlotinib as a model of acquired drug resistance. Constitutive CIP2A resulted in a constit...

The aim of our work was to develop a protocol enabling a derivation of mesenchymal stem/stromal cell (MSC) subpopulation with increased expression of pluripotent and neural genes. For this purpose we used a 3D spheroid culture system optimal for neural stem cells propagation. Although 2D culture conditions are typical and characteristic for MSC, under special treatment these cells can be cultured for a short time in 3D conditions. We examined the effects of prolonged 3D spheroid culture on MSC i...

Angiotensin II (Ang II) has various cardiac effects and causes vasoconstriction. Ang II activates the type-1 angiotensin receptor—Gq/11 signaling pathway resulting in the release of 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). We aimed to investigate whether cardiac Ang II effects are modulated by 2-AG-release and to identify the role of type-1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1R) in these effects. Expression of CB1R in rat cardiac tissue was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. To characterize short-term Ang II effect...

To optimise the culture conditions for human Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hWJ-MSCs) intended for clinical use, we investigated ten different properties of these cells cultured under 21% (atmospheric) and 5% (physiological normoxia) oxygen concentrations. The obtained results indicate that 5% O2 has beneficial effects on the proliferation rate, clonogenicity, and slowdown of senescence of hWJ-MSCs; however, the oxygen level did not have an influence on the cell morphology, immu...
