Distinct potential of osteoblast differentiation of adipose tissue- and bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells

Abuna Rodrigo , de Oliveira Fabiola , Kato Rogerio , Rosa Adalberto , Beloti Marcio

Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are of interest in the fields of cell therapy and tissue engineering thanks to their potential of differentiating into distinct cell lineages, e.g. osteoblast, chondrocyte, myoblast, and adipocyte. As the capacity of differentiation may vary according to the cell source, here, we compared the potential of osteoblast differentiation of MSCs derived from either bone marrow or adipose tissue. MSCs from rat bone marrow and adipose tissue were cu...

Participation of microRNA-34a/RANKL in the osteogenic potential of the Poly(vinylidene-trifluorethylene)/barium titanate membrane

Barrier membranes have been extensively used in dentistry to prevent soft tissue down-growth into the bone defects and to promote alveolar ridge augmentation. Previous studies of our group showed that the Poly(vinylidene-trifluoroethylene)/barium titanate composite (PVDF) enhances both the in vitro osteoblastic differentiation and the in vivo bone repair compared with a commercially available polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane. As bone formation may be regulated ...
