We have recently identified a novel mesenchymal stem cell-like population Mamo, Solomon1, Kobolak, Julianna1, Becker, Sonja2, Horsch, Marion2, derived from adult third molars called dental pulp stem cells (DPSC). DPSC Beckers, Johannes2, Dinnyes, Andras1

The Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases and their Research Center for Environment and Health, Neuherberg, Germany ligands, the ephrin molecules, play an essential role in the migration of neu-ral crest cells during development.

like nocodazol is a common practice to arrest the cell cycle at G2/M phase Multiple receptors and ligands were identified on DPSC by real time PCR and for synchronization. The goals of our study were to treat the contrasting ES immunohistochemistry. The function of EphB/ephrin-B molecules during cells with nocodazole, analyze, and compare the gene expression profiles, DPSC attachment and spreading was assessed in the presence of different and finally functionally characterize the differentially regulated genes. The Eph/ephrin-Fc fusion proteins using an established in vitro cell-spreading mouse R1-9 ES cells established from 129X1/SvJ X 129/Sv-CP of 3.5-day assay. In response to either EphB2-Fc or ephrin-B1-Fc, DPSC formed rounder blastocyst and HM-1 ES cells established from inbred (129/Ola X 129/Ola) and smaller cell bodies demonstrated by F-actin distribution, and restricted mouse strain were used for the study. ES cells were cultured on mitomycin C their ability to spread. Additionally, immature focal adhesions were identified treated mouse embryonic fibroblast feeder cell layer.

In this work, we have investigated the influence of pulsed exogenous sis (13%), metabolism (16%), signaling cascade (8%) and vesicle mediated electrical field at different frequencies on gene expression profile of muscular transport (4%). Moreover, the verification analysis using real-time PCR has satellite stem cells cultured onto micro-patterned templates. Stem cells were confirmed the results of microarray. Thus based on the detailed analysis and derived from single muscle fibers and seeded onto soft hydrogel surfaces, confirmation of the results with independent method, it is plausible to con- coated with micro-contact printing (µCP) technique. Pulse square waves of clude that the expression profile reflected the true biological responses of different frequencies (ranging between 1 and 0.01 Hz) were applied at dif- these ES cells to nocodazole treatment, and provide valuable information for ferent time points. Transcriptional analysis of electrically stimulated aligned comparative analysis of the two cell lines. Supported by Wellcome Trust satellite stem cell cultures was performed by cDNA microarrays. Total RNA (Grant No.070246), EU FP6 (MEXT-CT-2003-509582, LSHG-CT-2006-518240 from oriented electrically stimulated cultured cells was extracted and used and MRTN-CT-2006-035468), and Hungarian National Science Fund (OTKA for cDNA microarrays; RNA from single muscle fibers was used as control.
Satellite cells on the hydrogel surface are viable and myogenic as they arepositive to desmin and MyoD. They are able to proliferate, fuse and differen-tiate into aligned myotubes that follow the topology template of themicropatterned parallel lanes. Aligned myotubes, positive to both desminand myosin, show synchronous spontaneous contraction. Electrical stimula-tion affects morphology and spatial organization of satellite cells. This spatialarrangement is driven by chemotaxis phenomena. Different cell motilitieswere observed for different applied frequencies of the pulsed exogenous w w w . i s s c r . o r g
