10% BSA in Iscove's MDM

Overview

This product has been developed for use in applications where a culture medium of defined composition is required. It contains pre-screened batches of bovine serum albumin (BSA) that have been selected to support the optimal growth of human hematopoietic progenitor cells in serum-free media formulations. It is also suitable for the culture of mouse hematopoietic progenitor cells in serum-free conditions.

Recommended for use with MethoCult™ H4100 or MethoCult™ M3134 for hematopoietic colony-forming unit (CFU) assays (at a final concentration of 1%).

PPAR-α and glucocorticoid receptor synergize to promote erythroid progenitor self-renewal. Lee H-Y et al. Nature 2015 JUN

Abstract

Many acute and chronic anaemias, including haemolysis, sepsis and genetic bone marrow failure diseases such as Diamond-Blackfan anaemia, are not treatable with erythropoietin (Epo), because the colony-forming unit erythroid progenitors (CFU-Es) that respond to Epo are either too few in number or are not sensitive enough to Epo to maintain sufficient red blood cell production. Treatment of these anaemias requires a drug that acts at an earlier stage of red cell formation and enhances the formation of Epo-sensitive CFU-E progenitors. Recently, we showed that glucocorticoids specifically stimulate self-renewal of an early erythroid progenitor, burst-forming unit erythroid (BFU-E), and increase the production of terminally differentiated erythroid cells. Here we show that activation of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPAR-α) by the PPAR-α agonists GW7647 and fenofibrate synergizes with the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) to promote BFU-E self-renewal. Over time these agonists greatly increase production of mature red blood cells in cultures of both mouse fetal liver BFU-Es and mobilized human adult CD34(+) peripheral blood progenitors, with a new and effective culture system being used for the human cells that generates normal enucleated reticulocytes. Although Ppara(-/-) mice show no haematological difference from wild-type mice in both normal and phenylhydrazine (PHZ)-induced stress erythropoiesis, PPAR-α agonists facilitate recovery of wild-type but not Ppara(-/-) mice from PHZ-induced acute haemolytic anaemia. We also show that PPAR-α alleviates anaemia in a mouse model of chronic anaemia. Finally, both in control and corticosteroid-treated BFU-E cells, PPAR-α co-occupies many chromatin sites with GR; when activated by PPAR-α agonists, additional PPAR-α is recruited to GR-adjacent sites and presumably facilitates GR-dependent BFU-E self-renewal. Our discovery of the role of PPAR-α agonists in stimulating self-renewal of early erythroid progenitor cells suggests that the clinically tested PPAR-α agonists we used may improve the efficacy of corticosteroids in treating Epo-resistant anaemias.
In vitro expanded cells contributing to rapid severe combined immunodeficient repopulation activity are CD34+38-33+90+45RA-. Vanheusden K et al. Stem cells (Dayton, Ohio) 2007 JAN

Abstract

Expansion of hematopoietic stem cells could be used clinically to shorten the prolonged aplastic phase after umbilical cord blood (UCB) transplantation. In this report, we investigated rapid severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) repopulating activity (rSRA) 2 weeks after transplantation of CD34(+) UCB cells cultured with serum on MS5 stromal cells and in serum- and stroma-free cultures. Various subpopulations obtained after culture were studied for rSRA. CD34(+) expansion cultures resulted in vast expansion of CD45(+) and CD34(+) cells. Independent of the culture method, only the CD34(+)33(+)38(-) fraction of the cultured cells contained rSRA. Subsequently, we subfractionated the CD34(+)38(-) fraction using stem cell markers CD45RA and CD90. In vitro differentiation cultures showed CD34(+) expansion in both CD45RA(-) and CD90(+) cultures, whereas little increase in CD34(+) cells was observed in both CD45RA(+) and CD90(-) cultures. By four-color flow cytometry, we could demonstrate that CD34(+)38(-)45RA(-) and CD34(+)38(-)90(+) cell populations were largely overlapping. Both populations were able to reconstitute SCID/nonobese diabetic mice at 2 weeks, indicating that these cells contained rSRA activity. In contrast, CD34(+)38(-)45RA(+) or CD34(+)38(-)90(-) cells contributed only marginally to rSRA. Similar results were obtained when cells were injected intrafemorally, suggesting that the lack of reconstitution was not due to homing defects. In conclusion, we show that after in vitro expansion, rSRA is mediated by CD34(+)38(-)90(+)45RA(-) cells. All other cell fractions have limited reconstitutive potential, mainly because the cells have lost stem cell activity rather than because of homing defects. These findings can be used clinically to assess the rSRA of cultured stem cells.
Intracoronary infusion of CD133+ and CD133-CD34+ selected autologous bone marrow progenitor cells in patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy: cell isolation, adherence to the infarcted area, and body distribution. Goussetis E et al. Stem cells (Dayton, Ohio) 2006 OCT

Abstract

Central issues in intracoronary infusion (ICI) of bone marrow (BM)-cells to damaged myocardium for improving cardiac function are the cell number that is feasible and safe to be administrated as well as the retention of cells in the target area. Our study addressed these issues in eight patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy undergoing ICI of selected BM-progenitors. We could immunomagnetically isolate 0.8 +/- 0.32 x 10(7) CD133(+) cells and 0.75 +/- 0.24 x 10(7) CD133(-)CD34(+) cells from 310 +/- 40 ml BM. After labeling these cells with (99m)Tc-hexamethylpropylenamineoxime, they were infused into the infarct-related artery without any complication. Scintigraphic images 1 (eight patients) and 24 hours (four patients) after ICI revealed an uptake of 9.2% +/- 3.6 and 6.8% +/- 2.4 of the total infused radioactivity in the infarcted area of the heart, respectively; the remaining activity was distributed mainly to liver and spleen. We conclude that through ICI of CD133(+) and CD133(-)CD34(+) BM-progenitors a significant number of them are preferentially attracted to and retained in the chronic ischemic myocardium.
