Adult SC News

asc cat

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 primary roles of adult stem cells in a living organism are to maintain and repair the tissue in which they are found. Scientists also use the term somatic stem cell instead of adult stem cell, where somatic refers to cells of the body (not the germ cells, sperm or eggs).

Where are Adult Stem Cells found?

Adult stem cells have been identified in many organs and tissues, including fat or adipose tissue, bone marrow, peripheral blood, blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, teeth, heart, gut, liver, ovarian epithelium, and testis. They are thought to reside in a specific area of each tissue (called a "stem cell niche"). In many tissues, current evidence suggests that some types of stem cells are pericytes, cells that compose the outermost layer of small blood vessels. Stem cells may remain quiescent (non-dividing) for long periods of time until they are activated by a normal need for more cells to maintain tissues, or by disease or tissue injury.

Below you will find the query at Google News on "Adult Stem Cells"- the main excitement in respect of ASC´s however is caused by Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which are the cells generally thought to be capable of (trans-)differentiation in several mesodermal (and other) lineages i.e. can morph into different tissues. For this reason - we will switch our RSS feeds after this one, to "Mesenchymal SC or MSC´s" in this category Adult SC or ASC´s.

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a prototypical adult stem cell with capacity for self-renewal and differentiation with a broad tissue distribution. Initially described in bone marrow, MSCs have the capacity to differentiate into mesoderm- and nonmesoderm-derived tissues. The endogenous role for MSCs is maintenance of stem cell niches (classically the hematopoietic), and as such, MSCs participate in organ homeostasis, wound healing, and successful aging. From a therapeutic perspective, and facilitated by the ease of preparation and immunologic privilege, MSCs are emerging as an extremely promising therapeutic agent for tissue regeneration. Studies in animal models of myocardial infarction have demonstrated the ability of transplanted MSCs to engraft and differentiate into cardiomyocytes and vasculature cells, recruit endogenous cardiac stem cells, and secrete a wide array of paracrine factors.

PubMed- Latest Free Papers on MSCs

PubMed DB- Latest Entries for Mesenchymal Stem Cells
PubMed DB- Latest Entries for Mesenchymal Stem Cells


PubMed comprises more than 26 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites. 

The query  I made on PubMed for this section of the page, was Free Papers  AND on "Mesenchymal + Stromal + Cells". The outcome thereof  (10 returns) you will find below- of course, during the course of time, this RSS feed most likely will look different all the time- and that is of course the purpose and genial thing about RSS feeds- you always get the latest and most current stuff..
