چکیده

Background & Aims: Type 1 diabetes, or insulin-dependent diabetes, is an autoimmune disease in which pancreatic beta cells are destroyed by the immune system. Hitherto, no definite treatment has been found for this condition. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent, self-renewing cells that have the ability to differentiate into mesodermal tissues. This ability has attracted the attention of researchers toward MSCs as therapeutic agents. The aim of this study was to inspect the in vitro differentiation of human adipose-derived tissue stem cells (hADSCs) into insulin producing cells (IPCs) using minimal differentiation factors to provide a source of cells for the purpose of diabetic cell therapy. Methods: The hADSCs were obtained from liposuction aspirates and induced to differentiate into IPCs under a two-stage protocol. In the pre-induction stage, a combination of low-glucose DMEM medium, 20% (FBS), β-mercaptoethanol, and nicotinamide, and in the induction stage, high-glucose DMEM, β- mercaptoethanol, and nicotinamide without FBS was used. Differentiation was evaluated through morphological analysis, dithizone (DTZ) staining, and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RTPCR). In order to evaluate the performance of differentiated cells, insulin production level was measured. Results: Morphological changes were observed using an inverted microscope at the end of the differentiation stage. Based on dithizone staining, differentiated cells were positive. Furthermore, RT-PCR confirmed the expression of insulin, pancreatic duodenal homeobox (PDX-1), paired box gene 4 (PAX-4), and glucose transporter type 2 (GLUT2) in differentiated cells. Moreover, insulin production by the IPCs was confirmed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Conclusion: It can be concluded that hADSCs can differentiate into IPCs using minimal differentiation factors.

The feasibility of isolating and manipulating mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from human patients provides hope for curing numerous disease and disorders. Recent phenotypic analysis showed heterogeneity of MSCs. A nestin progenitor cell is a subpopulation within MSCs which plays a role in pancreas regeneration during embryogenesis. This study aimed to separate nestin (+) cells from human bone mar...

  Background & Objective: Diabetes is a major chronic metabolic disease in the world. Islet transplantation is a way to treat diabetes. Unfortunately, this method is restricted due to graft rejection and lack of donor islets. Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCS) have the ability to differentiate into Insulin-Producing Cells (IPCs). In this study, Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells (HUMSCS) were in...

Hyaline cartilage is a vascular and neural tissue with scanty chondrocytes and limited regenerative ability. After some serious injuries of the cartilage, healing process will take place through the formation of fibrocartilage structures. Currently, tissue engineering and cell therapy are 2 interesting therapeutic fields dealing with regenerative medicine. In this regard, tissue&...

Introduction:   Mesenchymal stem cells have the potential of self-renewal and differentiation into different cell types, including blood cells, heart, nerves and cartilage, and have unlimited power for division. These cells can be obtained from cord, before implantation from fertilized cells and also from various tissues of adults although the differentiation power and the ability to reproduce ...

BACKGROUND Cardiomyocytes have small potential for renovation and proliferation in vivo. Consequently, the heart muscle has limited capacity of self-renewal. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) therapy, as well as MSC differentiated into cardiomyocytes, has been used in the attempt to minimize the effects of ischemic-hypoxic lesions and those affecting the electrical conduction system of the heart. ...
