Bone marrow also contains a second type of adult stem cell known as a stromal or mesenchymal stem cell. Stromal stem cells become bone, cartilage, fat and connective tissues found in bone. Adult stem cells have also been found in many other tissues such as the brain, skeletal muscle, blood vessels, skin, liver, teeth and the heart.Author: Stephanie Watson & Craig Freudenrich, Ph.D. Jun 17, 2001 · Adult stem cells, like all stem cells, share at least two characteristics. First, they can make identical copies of themselves for long periods of time; this ability to proliferate is referred to as long-term self-renewal. Second, they can give rise to mature cell types that have characteristic morphologies (shapes).
An adult stem cell is thought to be an undifferentiated cell, found among differentiated cells in a tissue or organ. The adult stem cell can renew itself and can differentiate to yield some or all of the major specialized cell types of the tissue or organ. The elemental discrimination between embryonic and adult neural stem cells is that the process of adult NSC is not orchestrated and massively paralleled progression as that in the embryonic developmental stages because such stages can occur at any time point .Cited by: 70.
Derivation of Liver Organoids from Adult Liver Stem Cells. While Lgr5 stem cell marker-expression is generally not detected in the adult wild type liver, injury triggers the activation of an epithelial Lgr5+ epithelial progenitor cell population. 20 Isolation of single Lgr5+ cells from the adult mouse liver and their growth into hepatic organoids has demonstrated their clonogenic potential and the long-term . Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult stem cells which identified by adherence to plastic, expression of cell surface markers including CD44, CD90, CD105, CD106, CD166, and Stro-1, lack of the expression of hematopoietic markers, no immunogenic effect and replacement of damaged tissues.Cited by: 113.
Sox2 + adult mouse pituitary cells can self-renew and terminally differentiate in vitro, but their physiological role in vivo and possible contribution to oncogenesis remain largely unknown. Using genetic lineage tracing, we show here that the Sox2 + cell compartment of both the embryonic and adult pituitary contains stem/progenitor cells that are able to differentiate into all hormone Cited by: 136. Dec 03, 2010 · Membrane-expressed markers would also facilitate isolation of these adult stem cell populations for exploitation of their regenerative potential. Here, we review recent advances in adult stem cell biology, highlighting the promise and pitfalls of the candidate biomarkers of Cited by: 340.

Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Bone marrow transplant is a form of stem cell therapy that has been used for many years without controversy. Advantages. Stem cell treatments may lower symptoms of the disease or condition that is being treated.FMA: 63368.
