چکیده

Introduction: Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells capable of duplication and auto-recovery and distinction from various cells including chondrocytes, adipocytes, chondroblasts, fibroblasts, and osteoblasts. Human stem cells are always subject to local and external mechanical loads. External loads are caused by physical activity in external environment loading to infliction of static and dynamic loads on the body and internal loads are typically caused due to body physiological function. Mechanical factors can affect different parameters such as morphology, proliferation, migration, metabolism and death as well as chemical changes in cells and lead to chemical changes in extracellular matrix and intracellular environment, besides distinction of cells.  Methods: MSCs were isolated from rat’s bone marrow, then cultured in microgravity conditions. Morphologic changes of cells were analyzed by taking pictures at different times. Results: Results indicated a reduction in cell area and an increase in cell aspect ratio, in microgravity conditions. No significant difference was observed in cell angle of rotation at different time measurements. Also, in measuring viability of these cells using MTT test it was found that microgravity reduces viability of stem cells, considerably.  Conclusion: Microgravity conditions have a considerable impact on morphology of MSCs. Furthermore, viability of MSCs decreased signi ficantly after 48 h, under microgravity conditions.

In the bone marrow, there are certain populations of stem cell sources with the capacity to differentiate into several different types of cells. Ideally, cell transplants would be readily obtainable, easy to expand and bank, and capable of surviving for sufficient periods of time. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) possess all of these characteristics. One of the most important benefi...

In the last 15 years, there has been a significant increase in the number of researchers interested in studying Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). MSCs are self-renewing, heterogenic, and multipotent cells that have multi-lineage potential to differentiate not only in to cell types of mesodermal origin but also other various cell lineage MSCs migrate to inflammatory tissues and apply immunosuppress...

Objective(s):In previous investigations, we have shown para-nonylphenol (p-NP) caused significant reduction of proliferation and differentiation of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in vitro. In this study, we first treat the rats with p-NP, then carried out the biochemical and morphological studies on MSCs. Materials and Methods: Proliferation property of cells was evaluated with t...

The present study determined the regenerative effect of bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) on thioacetamide (TA)-induced liver fibrosis in rats. A total of 30 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into sham control and treatment groups. The rats of the sham control group were subdivided into three groups and sampled on the 14th, 18th, and 20th weeks after fibrosis induction. The rats of th...

Currently several studies are being carried out on various properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs)however there are a few investigations about drug metabolizing properties of these cells. The aim of thisstudy was to measure the key factors involved in drug metabolism in human bone marrow MSCs. For thispurpose, cellular glutathione (GSH), glutathione Stransferase (GSTs) and...
