Preconditioning with melatonin improves therapeutic outcomes of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells in targeting liver fibrosis induced by CCl4

Preconditioning with melatonin improves therapeutic outcomes of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal... Preconditioning of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with melatonin (MT) has shown promising results in animal models of myocardial infarction, renal ischemia and cerebral ischemia. Here, we use this strategy in the liver fibrosis induced by CCl4. There were five groups: normal, CCl4, CCl4 + vehicle, CCl4 + BMMSCs and CCl4 + MT-bone marrow (BM)-derived MSCs (MT-BMMSCs). CCl4 was injected twice weekly for 8 weeks and treatment either with cells or vehicle was performed at the beginning of week 5 with a single dose. BMMSCs were preconditioned with MT for 24 h before injection. MT-BMMSCs had a high ability of homing into the injured liver (P ≤ 0.05 vs. BMMSCs). The CCl4 + MT-BMMSCs group showed higher percentage of glycogen storage but lower percentage of collagen and lipid accumulation (P ≤ 0.05 vs. CCl4 + BMMSCs). The CCl4 + MT-BMMSCs group showed lower expressions of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and Bax and lower content of sera alanine aminotransferase (ALT) but higher expressions of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and Bcl2 compared with the BMMSCs group (P ≤ 0.05). The results showed the better therapeutic outcomes of MT preconditioning by probably improving cell homing and also better maintenance of the balance between matrix degrading and accumulating factors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cell and Tissue Research Springer Journals

Abstract

Preconditioning of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with melatonin (MT) has shown promising results in animal models of myocardial infarction, renal ischemia and cerebral ischemia. Here, we use this strategy in the liver fibrosis induced by CCl4. There were five groups: normal, CCl4, CCl4 + vehicle, CCl4 + BMMSCs and CCl4 + MT-bone marrow (BM)-derived MSCs (MT-BMMSCs). CCl4 was injected twice weekly for 8 weeks and treatment either with cells or vehicle was performed at the beginning of week 5 with a single dose. BMMSCs were preconditioned with MT for 24 h before injection. MT-BMMSCs had a high ability of homing into the injured liver (P ≤ 0.05 vs. BMMSCs). The CCl4 + MT-BMMSCs group showed higher percentage of glycogen storage but lower percentage of collagen and lipid accumulation (P ≤ 0.05 vs. CCl4 + BMMSCs). The CCl4 + MT-BMMSCs group showed lower expressions of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and Bax and lower content of sera alanine aminotransferase (ALT) but higher expressions of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and Bcl2 compared with the BMMSCs group (P ≤ 0.05). The results showed the better therapeutic outcomes of MT preconditioning by probably improving cell homing and also better maintenance of the balance between matrix degrading and accumulating factors.
