  • Cytokine Interferon-γ suppresses the function of capsule myofibroblasts and induces cell apoptosis

    Cytokine Interferon‐γ suppresses the function of capsule myofibroblasts and induces cell apoptosis

    (A–D) Human myofibroblasts (MFs) isolated from joint capsules are alpha-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) positive and carry IFN- receptor (R) 1 on the membrane surface. Representative immunofluorescence photomicrographs of the MF marker protein α-SMA (A) and IFN-γ-R1 (B) in MF cultures are illustrated with a magnified myofibrolast. (C) Nuclei were stained with Hoechst 33258 (blue, DAPI filter). (D) Illustration of merged images of cell nuclei (blue), α-SMA (red), and IFN-γ-R1 (green). A terminal differentiated stellate cell is magnified in all images and illustrates expression of α-SMA and IFN-γ -R1 in detail. Scale bars correspond to 67.8 μm, respectively. DAPI: 4′-6-diamidino-2-phenylindole.

    Fracture site. (a) Colles’ fracture: Fracture line only on the dorsal surface of epiphysis; (b) Smith's fracture: Fracture line only on the volar surface of epiphysis; (c) Chauffer fracture: Fracture line passing completely through the radiocarpal joint on the radial side of epiphysis; (d) Radial side fracture: Fracture line not passing through the radiocarpal joint on the radial side of epiphysis; and (e) Scaphoid fracture: Fracture line at the scaphoid bone.

    Drilling of acetabular bone.

  • Reverse engineering development: Crosstalk opportunities between developmental biology and tissue engineering

    Reverse engineering development: Crosstalk opportunities between developmental biology and tissue engineering

    Proposed steps in mutual feedback between developmental biology and tissue engineering. Developmental biology insights inform regenerative approaches, enabled by engineered microenvironments, which in turn will enable novel approaches for hypothesis testing to understand developmental mechanisms.
