Caracterización comparativa de células madre inducida por isquemia cerebral multipotentes con células madre mesenquimales: Similitudes y diferencias

células madre mesenquimales (MSC) son células madre multipotentes localizadas en las regiones perivasculares de diversos órganos, incluyendo la médula ósea (BM). While MSC transplantation represents a promising stem cell-based therapy for ischemic stroke, increasing evidence indicates that exogenously administered MSCs rarely accumulate in the injured central nervous system (SNC). Por lo tanto, compared with MSCs, regionally derived brain multipotent stem cells may be a superior source to elicit regeneration of the CNS following ischemic injury. We previously identified ischemia-induced multipotent stem cells (IscS) as likely originating from brain pericytes/perivascular cells (PCs) within poststroke regions. sin embargo, detailed characteristics of iSCs and their comparison with MSCs remains to be investigated. In the present study, we compared iSCs with BM-derived MSCs, with a focus on the stemness and neuron-generating activity of each cell type. From our results, stem and undifferentiated cell markers, including c-myc and Klf4, were found to be expressed in iSCs and BM-MSCs. en adición, both cell types exhibited the ability to differentiate into mesoderm lineages, including as osteoblasts, adipocitos, and chondrocytes. sin embargo, compared with BM-MSCs, high expression of neural stem cell markers, including nestin and Sox2, were found in iSCs. en adición, IscS, but not BM-MSCs, formed neurosphere-like cell clusters that differentiated into functional neurons. These results demonstrate that iSCs are likely multipotent stem cells with the ability to differentiate into not only mesoderm, but also neural, lineages. Collectively, our novel findings suggest that locally induced iSCs may contribute to CNS repair by producing neuronal cells following ischemic stroke.
