For analyzing gene expression in myeloid progenitors (pre-GM, GMPs) as well as in hematopoietic stem cells and multipotent progenitors (MPPs), cells from these populations were FACSAria-sorted directly into 75 [micro]l of buffer RLT and frozen at -80[degrees]C.

In this publication, the authors isolate multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs) from the bone marrow to determine if injecting these cells into a rat whose spinal cord has been crushed will help reverse the effects of the SCI.
The product contains a multipotent resignaling complex, in which human fibroblasts are harvested from a neonatal cell bank and cultured in bovine-free media.
However, the gold standard for identification of multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (usually indicated as mesenchymal stem cells) includes their plastic adherence, which is an in vitro criterion.
According to Slukvin, an unfulfilled aspiration is to produce hematopoietic stem cells, multipotent stem cells found in bone marrow that are used to treat some cancers, including leukemia and multiple myeloma, in the lab.
Stem cells from more differentiated tissues such as those found in and around the developing foetus, extraembryonic tissues (placenta, chorion, and umbilicus), and the newborn infant and in older "adult" tissues are all thought to be multipotent. Multipotent stem cells are able to differentiate into different cell types but usually only to cell types that are derived from the same embryonic germ layer [5].
Led by a team of specialists at the University Hospital of in Regensburg, Germany, the researchers developed an approach using a special class of stem cells referred to as multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs).
Previous studies have suggested that prenatal exposure to obesogens can alter metabolism in mice and predispose multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to become fat cells, but whether these changes last through subsequent generations was unknown.
Dermal papilla cell clusters are mesenchyme cells, which perform several important functions that include being reservoirs of multipotent stem dens, which are critical assets in the area of regenerative medicine; having the physical inductive influence on the cells of undifferentiated epidermis to push into the dermis as part of processes involved in skin appendage formation; acting as body's antidote mechanisms for preventing unwarranted inflammatory reactions; and producing useful antimicrobial proteins.
The team is calling the newly identified stem cell type multipotent vascular stem cells.
In this valuable contribution to current understanding of these multipotent cells which have both cytoprotective and cytotoxic effects on retinal neurons, Reichenbach and Bringmann (physiologists, U.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, studying how the immune system operates, discovered a previously unidentified cell population that may be the body's double-edged sword, fighting off parasitic infections but also causing the harmful immune responses that can lead to allergies and asthma.This cell population, termed multipotent progenitor cells, or MPP, appears to be activated in the context of allergies or infection with parasitic worms and may be one of the earliest cellular events in the developing immune response.
Multipotent and unipotent are also described to define stem cell potency.
