Previous immunophenotype analyses reveal that each cell population isolated from SF to date expresses a surface marker profile that includes positivity for at least some of CD13, CD44, CD73, CD90 (Thy-1), and/or CD105 (endoglin/SH2), suggesting that these cells may be classed as either mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells or multipotent adult progenitor cells, a subset of the MSC population.

Led by a team of specialists at the University Hospital of in Regensburg, Germany, the researchers developed an approach using a special class of stem cells referred to as multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs).
These 21 articles help readers understand the ravages of CHF and the successes and failures of optimal medical therapies and give the basic science behind stem cell research, including the different stem cell types (including hematopoietic, mesenchymal, multipotent adult progenitor cells, umbilical cord blood stem cells, endogenous cardiac stem cells and embryonic stem cells) and the critical physiological pathways including chemokine and homing factor expression, stem cell differentiation toward a cardiac myocyte phenotype and mechanisms of arrhythmia including electrical coupling.
The stem cells used in the study were a recently discovered stem cell type, referred to as multipotent adult progenitor cells, or MAPCs.
The versatility of these bone marrow cells, which Verfaillie and her team call multipotent adult progenitor cells, or MAPCs, could make them invaluable in several clinical and research settings.
Verfaillie and researchers at the University recently published a groundbreaking paper in the July 4th issue of Nature (Nature, 418, published online June 20) showing that a specific type of stem cell isolated from adult bone marrow, known as Multipotent Adult Progenitor Cells (MAPCs(TM)), can be transformed into virtually any cell type, including liver, lung, muscle, brain and kidney.
