Neural differentiation of rat aorta pericyte cells
Pericyte perivascular cells, believed to originate mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), are characterized by their capability to differentiate into various phenotypes and participate in tissue reconstruction of different organs, ...
Human adipose tissue derived pericytes increase life span in Utrn tm1Ked Dmd mdx /J Mice
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is still an untreatable lethal X-linked disorder, which affects 1 in 3500 male births. It is caused by the absence of muscle dystrophin due to mutations in the dystrophin gene. The potential ...
In vitro gentamicin exposure alters caveolae protein profile in cochlear spiral ligament pericytes
Abstract Background The aminoglycoside antibiotic gentamicin is an ototoxic drug and has been used experimentally to investigate cochlear damage induced by noise. ...

Dual origin of mesenchymal stem cells contributing to organ growth and repair
(NATL ACAD SCIENCES, 2011)
In many adult tissues, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are closely associated with perivascular niches and coexpress many markers in common with pericytes. The ability of pericytes to act as MSCs, however, remains controversial. ...
