|Constitution of fibrin-based niche for in vitro differentiation of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells to keratinocytes. |

Epithelialization of chronic cutaneous wound is troublesome and may require use of skin/cell substitutes. Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSCs) have immense potential as autologous cell source for treating wounds; they can cross the germ layer boundary of differentiation and regenerate skin. When multipotent adult stem cells are considered for skin regeneration, lineage committed keratinocytes may be beneficial to prevent undesirable post-transplantation outcome. This study hypothesized that ADMSCs may be directed to epidermal lineage in vitro on a specifically designed biomimetic and biodegradable niche. Cells were seeded on the test niche constituted with fibrin, fibronectin, gelatin, hyaluronic acid, laminin V, platelet growth factor, and epidermal growth factor in the presence of cell-specific differentiation medium (DM). The ADMSCs grown on bare tissue culture polystyrene surface in DM is designated DM-control and those grown in basal medium (BM) is the BM-control. Lineage commitment was monitored with keratinocyte-specific markers such as cytokeratin 14, cytokeratin 5, cytokeratin 19, and integrin α6 at the transcriptional/translational level. The in vitro designed biomimetic fibrin composite matrix may have potential application as cell transplantation vehicle.

To describe the phenotypic characteristics of a limbal epithelial cell sheet outgrowth from a limbal explant cultured on amniotic membrane.Immunofluorescent staining and confocal microscopy were used to examine the expressions of p63, Ki-67, keratins 3 and 14, connexin 43, and the integrin alpha6/beta4 and alpha3/beta1 subunits in corneal and limbal tissues in a limbal explant and epithelial outgrowth cultured for 2 weeks on amniotic membrane.The expression patterns of p63, Ki-67, keratins, integrins, and connexin 43 in a limbal explant with an epithelial outgrowth cultured for 2 weeks on amniotic membrane resembled those in freshly prepared limbus. Moreover, the distribution of integrin subunits in positive cells of the limbal explant and its epithelial outgrowth was similar to that of the corneal epithelial cells during wound repair.The epithelial cell sheet grown from a limbal explant on amniotic membrane exhibited a phenotype similar to that of the limbus, suggesting that amniotic membrane is a substrate capable of supporting the propagation and preservation of p63-positive limbal epithelial cells.

In the course of immunohistochemical studies it has become apparent that there is a distinct phenotype of keratin expression that is shared by basal epithelial cells in a variety of different tissues. A basal cell can be defined as a cell in contact with a basal lamina but with no free luminal surface; this distinguishes it from a simple epithelial cell, which has a free luminal surface as well as basal lamina contact, and from stratifying suprabasal keratinocytes, which have neither basal lamina contact nor free luminal surface. All basal cells, whether they are in glandular ductal or secretory epithelia, or in stratified squamous epithelia, express the keratin pair K5 and K14. In this paper we describe monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies that are monospecific for both keratins 14 and 5 or are specific for denaturation-sensitive epitopes unique to basal cells, including five new monoclonal antibodies: LL001 and LL002 (to keratin 14), 2.1.D7 (to keratins 5, 6 and 8), and LH6 and LH8 (conformation-specific basal cell markers). These antibodies have been used to monitor the distribution of the basal cell phenotype and to demonstrate the expression of keratins 5 and 14 in this cell type, in both stratified epithelia and mixed epithelial glands. The consistent association of this keratin pair with basal cells suggests a possible specific function for these keratin in reinforcing epithelia under physical stress, whilst expression of these keratins may conflict with the differentiated functions of most simple epithelial cells.
