Objective(s): Liver transplantation is the most important therapy for end-stage liver disease and ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury is indeed a risk factor for hepatic failure after grafting. The role of miRNAs in I/R is not completely understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential protective role of the mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and ischemic preconditioning on miR-370 expression and tissue injury in hepatic I/R injury. Materials and Methods: In this study, 24 BALB/c mice were divided into 4 groups, including sham, I/R, I/R mouse that received MSCs (I/R+MSC) and ischemia preconditioning (IPC) The expression levels of hepatic miR-370, Bcl2 and BAX in male BALB/c mice in different groups including hepatic I/R, hepatic I/R received MSCs, and hepatic I/R with IPC were assessed by quantitative real-time PCR. The effect of miR-370 on hepatic I/R was investigated by serum liver enzyme analysis and histological examination. Results: The expression of miR-370 was significantly up-regulated in the mice subjected to hepatic I/R injury as compared with the sham operated mice. Injection of MSCs led to the down-regulation of the serum liver enzymes, expression of miR-370 and BAX, up-regulation of Bcl2 as well as the improvement of hepatic histological damage. IPC led to similar results, but the difference was not significant. Conclusion: Our data suggest that miR-370 affected the Blc2/BAX pathway in hepatic I/R injury, and down- regulation of miR-370 by BM-MSCs efficiently attenuated the liver damage.

Autophagy-Modulated Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Accelerate Liver Restoration in Mouse Models of Acute Liver Failure

Background: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been recently received increasing attention for cell-based therapy, especially in regenerative medicine. However, the low survival rate of these cells restricts their therapeutic applications. It is hypothesized that autophagy might play an important role in cellular homeostasis and survival. This study aims to investigate the regenerative potentia...

Harvesting of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells from live rats and the in vitro differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells into neuron-like cells

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...
