Different expression of hematopoietic-supporting genes in cord, placental and bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells

Cite item


Human multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (MMSC) from bone marrow (BM), umbilical cord (UC) and chorion villi (CV) were isolated and cultured in xeno-free media supplemented with AB human serum There were no differences in expression of CD31, CD33, CD34, CD45, CD90, СD105, CD117, HLA-ABC, HLA-DR between BM, UC and CV MMSC Human AB serum (5%) accelerated proliferation of UC MMSC in vitro. Expression of genes opn, scf, cxcl12, il-3, il-6, il-8, il-11, g-csf, gm-csf, epo, and nes was studied in Real-Time PCR. Up-regulation the expression gene nes in CV MMSC and genes g-csf and il-11 (but 6-fold down-regulation of cxcl12) in UC MMSC, was revealed when compared to BM MMSC (p<0. 03). Expression of il-6 and epo genes in MMCS did not differ. Trend to 10-fold increased expression of gene il-8 as well as cytokine content in UC MMSC vs BM MMCS was demonstrated CV MMSC revealed more differences from the UC MMSC than from the BM MMSC in expression of hematopoietic-supporting genes (opn, scf, il-11, p<0.03). Various abilities of mesenchymal cells from human BM, UC and placenta to express hematopoietic-supporting genes had to be taken into account in application of MMCS for generation of hematopoietic stem cells in vitro
