Unrestricted somatic stem cells as vehicle for nerve growth factor gene transfer.

Nerve growth factor (NGF), a member of the neurotrophic factor family, plays a critical role in the maintenance and regeneration of different types of neurons. To overcome drastic challenges in the peripheral delivery of NGF, transplantation of NGF secreting stem cells to the target site of an injury may be an effective procedure. Unrestricted somatic stem cells (USSCs), a subtype of umbilical cord blood (UCB) stem cells, have shown promise for gene therapy purposes, and proper results have been observed from transplantation experiments in neurodegenerative disorders. Based on the considerable potential of USSCs for gene delivery applications, the goal of the current study was to establish a betaNGF gene containing USSCs, which is able to secrete functional recombinant betaNGF protein.

Developmental expression of urinary bladder neurotrophic factor mRNA and protein in the neonatal rat.

These studies were performed to determine the developmental expression pattern of neurotrophic factor (NTF: nerve growth factor (betaNGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), glial-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) and NT-4 mRNA and NGF, NT-3 and NT-4 protein in the urinary bladder of the postnatal Wistar rat. It was hypothesized that NTFs may contribute to the development of the spinobulbospinal micturition reflex that represents the adult micturition pattern. Changes in NTF mRNA or protein expression in the urinary bladder at the time of development of the mature micturition reflex (postnatal days (P) 16-18) may suggest an involvement of target-derived NTFs in this maturation process. Developmental ages, prior to (P5, P10, P15) or following (P20, P30, adult P90) the development of the spinobulbospinal micturition reflex were selected and the urinary bladder was analyzed for levels of neurotrophic factor mRNA or protein. Results from ribonuclease protection assays demonstrated a similar developmental pattern among each neurotrophic factor examined. Neurotrophic factor mRNA levels increased by P10 and reach a maximum by P15. Subsequently, NTF mRNA levels declined to adult levels that were less than the earliest postnatal time examined (P5). NTF mRNA expression was significantly (p
