Abstract Background Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) therapy has become a new coming focus of clinical research in regenerative medicine. However, only a small number of implanted MSCs could successfully reach the injured areas. The previous studies have shown that fracture healing time is inversely proportional to concentration of MSCs in injured tissue. Methods The migration and osteogenesis of MSCs were assessed by transwell assay and Alizarin Red S staining. Levels of gene and protein expression were checked by qPCR and Western Blot. On the other hand, the enhanced migration ability of MSCs induced by Cyasterone was retarded by CXCR4 siRNA. In addition, the rat model of femoral fracture was established to evaluate the effect of Cyasterone on fracture healing. What's more, we also checked the effect of Cyasterone on mobilisation of MSCs in vivo. Results The results showed that Cyasteron increased the number of MSCs in peripheral blood. The concentrations of SDF-1α in serum at different time points were determined by ELISA assay. Micro-CT and histological analysis were used to evaluate the fractured femurs.Our results showed that Cyasterone could promote the migration and osteogenesis capacities of MSCs. The fractured femurs healed faster with treatment of Cyasterone. Meanwhile, Cyasterone could significantly increase the level of SDF-1α in rats with femur fracture. Conclusion Cyasterone could promote migration and osteogenesis of MSCs, and most importantly, it could accelerate bone fracture healing. Translational Potential statement: These findings provide evidence that Cyasterone could be used as a therapeutic reagent for MSCs mobilisation and osteogenesis. What's more, it could acclerate fracture healing.

Abstract Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be easily expanded without losing the ability of multilineage differentiation, including oesteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic differentiation. These characters make MSCs a promising cell resource for cartilage defect repair. MSCs could be recruited by inflammatory stimulation, then home to the injury tissues. However, its capacity of homing is extremely limited. Thus, it has become extremely necessary to develop an agent or a method, which can be us...

β-catenin protein needs to be precisely regulated for effective fracture repair. The pace of fracture healing slows with age, associated with a transient increase in β-catenin during the initial phase of the repair process. Here we examined the ability of pharmacologic agents that target β-catenin to improve the quality of fracture repair in old mice. 20 month old mice were treated with Nefopam or the tankyrase inhibitor XAV939 after a tibia fracture. Fractures were examined 21 days later by mic...

Introduction: Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs) are multiple potential stem cells that can differentiate into various kinds of functional cells, including adipocytes, osteoblasts, and chondroblasts. Thus, UCMSCs have recently been used in both stem cell therapy and tissue engineering applications to produce various functional tissues. This study aimed to evaluate the proliferation and differentiation of UCMSCs on porous scaffolds.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been used to elucidate the pathogenesis of numerous diseases. Our recent study showed that MSCs may conduce to the ossification of spinal ligaments. Stromal cell–derived factor-1 (SDF-1) and CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) regulate MSC migration. Moreover, their expression is elevated in sites of damage and remodeling in pathologic states. We explored the possible role of the SDF-1/CXCR4 axis in the chemotactic behavior of MSCs in the ossification of spinal li...

Background Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from bone marrow have potent stabilizing effects for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). However, low efficiency and survival in MSC homing to injured lung tissue remains to be solved. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess whether large intergenic noncoding RNA (LincRNA)-p21 promote MSC migration and survival capacity through hypoxic preconditioning in vitro.

Background Bushen Huoxue decoction (BHD) has a significant effect on fracture rehabilitation, yet its underlying mechanism is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to explore whether BHD promotes bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (BMSC) migration through the Wnt5a signalling pathway.

Abstract Background Syringin, also called eleutheroside B, is a main bioactive phenolic glycoside in Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Harms. Based on the “kidney dominates bone” theory of TCM, A. senticosus can strengthen bone and Syringin may be one of the responsibilities. Purpose The objectives of this study were to estimate the osteoporotic activity of Syringin and reveal the possible molecular mechanisms in vivo. Methods Sixty female ICR mice were randomly assigned into sham operat...

Bone defects caused by bone fractures, malformations, post-operation on tumor and even periodontitis have became serious clinical problems. Although the exact origin of osteoblast precursors is still obscure, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that originate from local bone marrow, periosteum, endosteum, mineralized bone or systemic circulation play key roles in osteoblastic differentiation and secretion of multiple factors during spontaneous healing of bone trauma or defect. Substantial evidences ha...

Healing and regeneration of bone injuries, particularly those that are associated with large bone defects, are a complicated process. There is growing interest in the application of osteoinductive and osteogenic growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in order to significantly improve bone repair and regeneration. MSCs are multipotent stromal stem cells that can be harvested from many different sources and differentiated into a variety of cell types, such as preosteogenic chondroblasts ...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are promising candidates for adult cell therapies in regenerative medicine. To fully exert their potential, efficient homing and migration toward lesion sites play an important role. Local transplantation deposits MSC in spatial proximity to the lesion, but often requires invasive procedures. Systemic administration routes are favored, but require the targeted extravasation of the circulating MSC at the site of injury. Transplanted MSC can indeed leave the blood flo...
