Mesenchymal Stem Cells

TAK1 is a Critical Regulator of BM-MSC Proliferation

While bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) represent a highly utile cell type for cell transplantation therapy, the molecular network underlying BM-MSC proliferation remains poorly understood. Now, researchers led by Takeshi Teramura (Kindai University, Osaka, Japan) report TGFβ‐activated kinase (Tak1) as a critical regulator of BM-MSC proliferation.

Understanding Metabolism to Improve MSC Survival

To develop the next generation of cell‐delivery materials and methods, we must have a better understanding of the metabolic switches mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) experience upon transplantation. By designing treatment strategies with cell metabolism in mind, we may improve survival and the overall therapeutic potential of MSCs.
