PNB 3260 Stem cell week of notes 3/29 and 3/31 Hematopoietic Hierarchy  Definition: Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are stem cells which give rise to blood cells via the process of hematopoiesis.  HSCs generate both myeloid and lymphoid lineages: o Myeloid: neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils, erythrocytes, platelets o Lymphoid: T cells, B cells ▯ ▯ Characteristics of HSCs  Multi-potency & Self-renewal  Heterogeneous populations  Cellular markers: many markers to identify HSCs and their progeny o Cluster of differentiation (CD34+, CD38+) o Receptor for stem cell factor (C-kit +) o Negative for markers of lineage commitment (lin - ) o ▯ Hematopoiesis during development  Major sites of blood cell formation o Extra-embryonic yolk sac o Fetal liver o Bone marrow—only at late developmental stages  In adults, mostly in bone marrow  Why this switch during the course of development? o Ligation of umbilical cord causes major changes in blood flow.  Loss of Nestin+ pericytes and disruption of HSC niche in fetal liver  Niche is driven into adult bone marrow o ▯ Hematopoietic stem cell niche  In adults, HSCs can be found mostly in bone marrow, small amounts in peripheral blood  HSCs in dif locations in bone marrow receive dif signals o Osteoblasts, nestin expressing cells, and CXCL12-abundant reticular (CAR) cells promote HSC retention. o Adipocytes reduce HSC numbers o ▯ Homing  Mobilization: HSCs migrate from blood to peripheral tissues  Homing: HSCs migrate back to bone marrow  Mirror processes regulated by chemokines, cytokines o Ex: stromal-derived factor- 1 (SDF-1), granulocyte– colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), stem cell factor (SCF) o Exact mechanisms still unknown o ▯ ID of SCs  Fluorescent tags attached to cell surface receptor can serve as a marker to identify ▯ Fluroescent Activated Cell Sorting (FACS)  Start wiith a heterogenous pop of dif cell types  Want to isolate CD34+ cells  Cells driven under pressure in single-cell droplets ▯ ▯ Parabiosis  Parabiosis-surgically joined together, shared circulation  Ubiquitous GFP expressing mouse paired with WT  Blood chimerism can be detected by looking for GFP+ cells in WT after separation  2 weeks  young blood reverses age-related impairments in cognitive function and synaptic plasticity in mice ▯ HSCs transplantation  Bone marrow harvest-drawing bone marrow out directly by puncturing a bone (usually hipbone) with a syringe o Painful!!  How else could we get HSCs for transplantation?  Peripheral blood-inject patient with cytokine, G-CSF, a few days before the harvest o so the SCs leave niche o G-CSF coaxes HSCs out of bone marrow, into peripheral blood o Filtering system that sorts out CD34+ cells and return blood cells back to patient ▯ Bone Marrow Transplantation in research  Direct engraftment into encephalon  Partial direct engraftment via blood vessels  Substitution of recipient’s bone marrow  Potential method: intranasal administration- nose is closer to brain  Ablation vs no ablation of bone marrow o Radiation is dangerous but could promote development of new things from destruction  Effects of radiation? Positive and negative ▯ Vasculature is an essential component of many adult stem cell niches ▯ ▯ Sleep disruption impairs hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in mice  Rolls article  In mice, donor sleep deprivation reduces the ability of HSCs to engraft and reconstitute blood and bone marrow of irradiated recipient by 50%!  Down-regulated expression of miR-19b, a negative regulator of suppressor of cytokine signaling (SOCs) genes  Inhibit migration and homing of HSCs  Analyse percent chimerism  Chimerism in PB and BM after 8 and 16 weeks  Short-term vs long-term effects  Efficiency of sleep-dep protocol (EEG, EMG)  Corticosterone levels for stress  BM isolated and lin-, c-kit +, Sca-1+, CD34 – (bc we’re in mice), CD150 + cells separated (HSCs) ▯ Assessmetn of homing potential ▯ GFP+ donor mice & WT recipient mice ▯ ▯ Comparative analysis of expression levels  Downregulation of miR-19b  SOCS3 (previously implicated in HSC migration) thought to be target of miR-19b  Validation of interaction between miR-19b and SOCS3   Growth hormone (GH) affects miR-19b expression and migration  GH secreted during sleep o GH increase attenuated in sleep dep. Mice  GH causes increased miR-19b expression  GH dose-dependent affect on HSC migration  Recovery sleep: imp for this experiment and in daily life  Sleep dep article is very very important   Final review Monday 5-7 tls 111
