Comparison of methods for deriving neural progenitor cells from nonhuman primate embryonic stem cells

essential regulatory role in maintaining an undifferentiated state, proliferation, and suppresses astrocyte differentiation [ 16 , 47 ]. TLX expression knockout dramatically reduced the neural stem cell population, but increased GFAP staining and extended GFAP processes in the subventricular zone [ 3 ]. This finding suggested that NPCs derived by feeder-free methods may have a higher tendency toward an astrocytic lineage with lower expression of TLX and high expression of GFAP Both methods of NPC derivation can produce NPCs with similar characteristics including the

Immunotherapeutic efficacy of a Lactobacillus casei lysate as an adjuvant combined with a heated-4T1 mammary carcinoma cell lysate in a murine model of breast cancer

-cell lysate alone. However, with the exception of IL-2, no significant changes in cytokine levels were found after immunization with the L. casei lysate alone. L. casei can induce apoptosis in a colorectal cancer cells in vitro [ 3 ]. In vivo the antitumor effects of L. casei on colorectal cancer are mediated by modulation of regulatory T-cells towards a Th 17 -biased immune response [ 31 ]. These findings are consistent with the increased secretion of IL-17 seen following immunization with the combined vaccine in the present study. The antitumor efficacy of
