Stem cells are a potential source for the regeneration of many tissues, including damaged kidneys. The present study describes the adoption of hyaluronic- butyric acid monoesters (HB) to induce expression of nephrogenic genes by mesenchymal cells isolated from human placental membranes. HB at a concentration of 1 mg/mL induces chromatin opening and increases the expression of the observed markers (cadherin 11, CD24, RAR-alpha, stearoyl-CoA desaturase 2, 14-3-3 0, Ewing sarcoma homolog.).

Abstract

Stem cells are a potential source for the regeneration of many tissues, including damaged kidneys. The present study describes the adoption of hyaluronic- butyric acid monoesters (HB) to induce expression of nephrogenic genes by mesenchymal cells isolated from human placental membranes. HB at a concentration of 1 mg/mL induces chromatin opening and increases the expression of the observed markers (cadherin 11, CD24, RAR-alpha, stearoyl-CoA desaturase 2, 14-3-3 0, Ewing sarcoma homolog.). These results open new routes toward cell regeneration after kidney injury.
