Consequently, as the endothelium and inflammatory cells play a crucial role in the development of collaterals after a sudden or slowly progressing stenosis of coronary arteries, endothelial progenitor cells and soluble adhesion molecules determine the formation and the quality of the collaterals.
One of the ways that stem and progenitor cells maintain internal health during their lives is through the exosome - a collection of approximately 11 proteins responsible for degrading and recycling different RNA elements, such as messenger RNA that wear out or that contain errors resulting in the translation of dysfunctional proteins which could potentially be deleterious to the cell.
They will also investigate ways of helping stem cells convert to progenitor cells.
In an attempt to identify the possible source of cells which maintain the tissue turnover, we used CD 34, a well established marker of peripheral blood stem cell in healthy human gingiva to determine the origin of progenitor cells in healthy gingiva.
