Electrospun scaffolds have been broadly studied to enhance bone regeneration because of the ability to simulate the structure and biological functions of the extracellular matrix. Polydopamine (PDA) is used to coat various surfaces at a slightly basic pH (8-8.5) and spontaneously reacts with nucleophilic functional groups. It is suitable for surface modifications of scaffolds correlated with bone formation. E7 is a newly discovered peptide with specific affinity for bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs)...

The design of hydrogels with adequate mechanical properties and excellent bioactivity, osteoconductivity, and capacity for osseointegration is essential to bone repair and regeneration. However, it is challenging to integrate all these properties into one bone scaffold. Herein, we developed a strong, tough, osteoconductive hydrogel by a facile one-step micellar copolymerization of acrylamide and urethacrylate dextran (Dex-U), followed by the in situ mineralization of hydroxyapatite (HAp) nanocrystals. We show that the soft, flexible, and hydrophobically associated polyacrylamide (PAAm) network is strengthened by the stiff crosslinked Dex-U phase, and that the mineralized HAp simultaneously improves the mechanical properties and osteoconductivity...

Quorum sensing (QS) inhibitor-based therapy is an attractive strategy to inhibit bacterial biofilm formation without excessive induction of antibiotic resistance. Thus, we designed Ca2+ -binding poly(lactide- co-glycolide) (PLGA) microparticles that can maintain a sufficient concentration of QS inhibitors around hydroxyapatite (HA) surfaces in order to prevent biofilm formation on HA-based dental or bone tissues or implants and, therefore, subsequent pathogenesis. Poly(butyl methacrylate- co-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphate) (PBMP) contains both Ca2+ -binding phosphomonoester groups and PLGA-interacting butyl groups...

Relapse of minimal residual disease (MRD) is a major problem after conventional chemotherapy in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The bone marrow stroma can protect AML cells from insults of chemotherapy, partly contributing to AML relapse. Arsenic trioxide (ATO) is the main component of arsenical traditional Chinese medicines and has been widely used for the treatment of hematologic malignancies particularly acute promyelocytic leukemia over the past three decades. ATO acts through a direct arsenic binding to cysteine residues in zinc fingers located in promyelocytic leukemia protein (PML), thus killing the leukemia stem cells (LSCs)...

We previously showed that MMP-9 contributes to CLL pathology by regulating cell survival and migration and that, when present at high levels, MMP-9 induces cell arrest. To further explore the latter function, we studied whether MMP-9 influences the gene-expression profile in CLL. Microarray analyses rendered 131 differentially expressed genes in MEC-1 cells stably transfected with MMP-9 (MMP-9-cells) versus cells transfected with empty vector (Mock-cells). Ten out of twelve selected genes were also differentially expressed in MEC-1 cells expressing the catalytically inactive MMP-9MutE mutant (MMP-9MutE-cells)...

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is a rapidly growing three-dimensional (3D) printing technology and has great potential in medicine. Polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) is a biocompatible high-performance polymer, which is suitable to be used as an orthopedic/dental implant material. However, the mechanical properties and biocompatibility of FDM-printed PEEK and its composites are still not clear. In this study, FDM-printed pure PEEK and carbon fiber reinforced PEEK (CFR-PEEK) composite were successfully fabricated by FDM and characterized by mechanical tests...

In the current study we compared the molecular signature of expanded mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) derived from selected CD271+ bone marrow mononuclear cells (CD271-MSCs) and MSCs derived from non-selected bone marrow mononuclear cells by plastic adherence (PA-MSCs). Transcriptome analysis demonstrated for the first time the upregulation of 115 and downregulation of 131 genes in CD271-MSCs. Functional enrichment analysis showed that the upregulated genes in CD271-MSCs are significantly enriched for extracellular matrix (tenascin XB, elastin, ABI family, member 3 (NESH) binding protein, carboxypeptidase Z, laminin alpha 2 and nephroblastoma overexpressed) and cell adhesion (CXCR7, GPNMB, MYBPH, SVEP1, ARHGAP6, TSPEAR, PIK3CG, ABL2 and NCAM1)...

Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) have been widely used as bone graft substitutes for many years. The aim of this study was to evaluate the biocompatibility of two novel injectable, bioactive cements: β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP)/CPC and chitosan microsphere/CPC in vitro and in vivo. This was accomplished by culturing mouse pre-osteoblastic cells (MC3T3-E1) on discs and pastes of CPCs. Cell growth, adhesion, proliferation and differentiation were assessed by 3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide and alkaline phosphatase assays as well as by scanning electron microscopy and fluorescence...

INTRODUCTION: Surgery or trauma may induce extensive arthrofibrosis around joints and tendon for the restrictive range of motion. Although some approaches were proposed, this problem is not solved satisfactorily. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been used for orthopedic, musculoskeletal, and fibrotic disorders. Whether it could prevent the formation of arthrofibrosis during the joint repair is unknown. METHODS: Intra-articular adhesions were created in the right knee of the rabbit by cortical bone shaving and subsequent cast immobilization...

Bone scaffold surface characterization is important for improving cell adhesion, migration, and differentiation. In this study, bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) was immobilized to the surface of the gelatin/hydroxyapatite composite using avidin-biotin binding system to produce a bone-tissue engineering scaffold. Firstly, hydroxyapatite particles reacted with hexamethylene diisocyanate and then the terminal group was converted into a primary amine group. Avidin was then immobilized on the surfaces of hydroxyapatite particles using N-ethyl-N'-(3-(dimethylamino)propyl) carbodiimide and N-hydroxysuccinimide as coupling agents...

Hydroxypropyl chitosan (HPCS) has recently attracted increasing attention in biomedical applications because it has enhanced water solubility, excellent biocompatibility, and better antioxidant and antibacterial activities compared with chitosan. However, HPCS doesn't meet the mechanical strength requirement in bone tissue engineering and is not suitable for cell adhesion and growth because of its hydrophilic nature and low crystallinity. In this study, nano-scaled hydroxyapatite (n-HA) and HPCS were synthesized, respectively, and then n-HA/HPCS nanocomposite scaffolds were developed by incorporating n-HA into HPCS matrix accompanied with crosslinking of HPCS by a naturally occurring compound, genipin (GP), which in turn greatly altered the hydrophilicity and mechanical properties...

The bone marrow (BM) microenvironment plays an important role in supporting proliferation, survival and drug resistance of Multiple Myeloma (MM) cells. MM cells adhere to bone marrow stromal cells leading to the activation of tumour-promoting signaling pathways. Activation of the NFκB pathway, in particular, is central to the pathogenesis of MM. Tumour necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 6 (TRAF6) is a key mediator of NFκB activation and has previously been highlighted as a potential therapeutic target in MM...

Effective bone tissue engineering can restore bone and skeletal functions that are impaired by traumas and/or certain medical conditions. Bone is a complex tissue and functions through orchestrated interactions between cells, biomechanical forces and biofactors. To identify ideal scaffold materials for effective mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-based bone tissue regeneration, here we develop and characterize a composite nanoparticle hydrogel by combining carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCh) and amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) (designated as CMCh-ACP hydrogel)...

Intrauterine adhesion (IUA) causing infertility and recurrent miscarriage of reproductive female mammals usually results from endometrium injury. Nevertheless, there is no efficient therapeutic method to avoid IUA. Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) are an important cell source for tissue regeneration. This study designs and explores the ability of BMSC-loaded elastic poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) scaffold to prevent IUA and compares the effect of PGS with poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and collagen scaffolds in resumption of damaged rat uteruses...

Aims: SCUBE1 (signal peptide-CUB-EGF domain-containing protein 1), expressed in endothelial cells (ECs) and platelets, exists in soluble or membrane forms. We previously showed that soluble SCUBE1 is a biomarker for platelet activation and also an active participant of thrombosis. However, whether the adhesive module of its EGF-like repeats is essential and the specific contribution of SCUBE1 synthesized in ECs or platelets to thrombosis in vivo remain unclear. Methods and Results: We generated new mutant (∆2) mice lacking the entire EGF-like repeats to evaluate the module's functional importance during thrombogenesis in vivo...
