The meeting on "Investigating cellular stress responses--a multidisciplinary approach from basic science to therapeutics" was held in London on 13 October 2006. The purpose of this 1-day meeting was to bring together European scientists investigating the immune biology of stress proteins and their potential clinical applications. The main topics included: the role of heat shock proteins (Hsps) in bacterial infections; the role of Hsps with a molecular mass of about 70 kDa in cancer therapy and in prediction of the clinical outcome following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; the quality and duration of stress as a danger signal for the initiation of a stress response; the mechanism of Hsp-protein interaction; and Hsp export from tumor cells in secretory granules.

    Oncoretroviral expression is transcriptionally silenced in embryonic and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). This is associated with methylation of viral and internal promoters. We determined whether self-inactivating (SIN) lentiviral vectors (LV) would circumvent proviral silencing in HSCs. We...

    In recent years, great interest has been aroused by the discovery of the ability of adult stem cells to contribute to regeneration processes and repair of damaged tissues. In particular, bone marrow derived stem cells (BMSCs), the most well known population of multipotent stem cells in adults,...

    Migration is an innate and fundamental cellular function that enables hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and endothelial progenitors (EPCs) to leave the bone marrow, relocate to distant tissue, and to return to the bone marrow. An increasing number of studies demonstrate the widening scope of the...

    Background. Reactivation of polyoma BK virus (BKV) infection is consistently associated with hemorrhagic cystitis in persons who undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In this study, we examined the relationship of reactivation of BKV infection with pre-HSCT serologic findings...
