341 feline embryonic stem-like cells derived from in vitro-produced blastocysts retain in vitro differentiation potential.
Bangkok, Thailand. In Reprod Fertil Dev, 31 Dec 2014
In vitro differentiation into embryoid bodies (EB) was induced by the hanging drop technique, and EB samples (n=5 for each time point) were tested for the expression of TTR, AFP, T (Bracyury), NKX2.5, MAP-2, and NESTIN genes at 0, 7, and 14 days of culture.
Foxc1 is a critical regulator of haematopoietic stem/progenitor cell niche formation.
Kyoto, Japan. In Nature, May 2014
Many studies have identified diverse candidate cells that constitute niches for haematopoietic stem cells in the marrow, including osteoblasts, endothelial cells, Schwann cells, α-smooth muscle actin-expressing macrophages and mesenchymal progenitors such as CXC chemokine ligand (CXCL)12-abundant reticular (CAR) cells, stem cell factor-expressing cells, nestin-expressing cells and platelet-derived growth factor receptor-α (PDGFR-α)(+)Sca-1(+)CD45(-)Ter119(-) (PαS) cells.
Molecular and Cellular Characterization of a Zebrafish Optic Pathway Tumor Line Implicates Glia-Derived Progenitors in Tumorigenesis.
Ames, United States. In Plos One, Dec 2013
We performed transcriptome analysis of pre-tumorous retina and retinal tumor tissue and found changes in gene expression signatures of radial glia and astrocytes (slc1a3), activated glia (atf3, blbp, apoeb), proliferating neural progenitors (foxd3, nestin, cdh2, her9/hes1), and glioma markers (S100β, vim).
Review on intermediate filaments of the nervous system and their pathological alterations.
Angers, France. In Histochem Cell Biol, Jul 2013
Intermediate filaments (IFs) of the nervous system, including neurofilaments, α-internexin, glial fibrillary acidic protein, synemin, nestin, peripherin and vimentin, are finely expressed following elaborated cell, tissue and developmental specific patterns.

Ch'ŏnan, South Korea. In Int J Stem Cells, 2011
Using this protocol, the majority of differentiated hES cells contained nestin positive cells (＞95%) and after final differentiation a high percentage of TuJ1 positive neurons was tyrosine hydroxylase positive (＞40%).
