New article published for Nanostem project about the interaction between nanoparticles and the blood-brain barrier in vitro

To treat brain disease is a challeging purpose, since the brain is protected by a barrier made by of tightly-joined endothelial cells of the cerebral microvessels, called the blood–brain barrier (BBB). To improve this route to reach the central nervous system, several strategies have been developed. Among them, researchers try Read more…

Poster – A single procedure to generate functional hiPSCs-derived liver organoids -Towards an innovative tool suitable for drug screening

Ask for high quality link by putting your email below We previously showed that human pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) provide a suitable model to study metabolic diseases upon hepatocyte-like cell (HLC) differentiation. In particular, HLCs have been used to model cholesterol metabolism regulation, by mimicking the main disease features in Read more…

BIOMIMESYS® Adipose tissue

Regulation of lipid accumulation : application with BIOMIMESYS® Adipose tissue

Retinoic acid and Caffeine are reference molecules known for their inhibitory activity on lipogenesis. Retinoic acid, a derivative of vitamin A, inhibits adipogenesis by blocking adipogenic factors such as PPARγ2 and C / EBPα, via the Retinoic acid receptor (RAR) ligand (1). Caffeine, a non-selective adenosine antagonist receptor, is used Read more…

Applications for 3D in vitro models with BIOMIMESYS® Adipose Tissue and preview of BIOMIMESYS® Skin

3D cell culture systems have recently emerged as promising tools for reproducing the cellular environment and the organization of tissues/organs, where cells are connected to each other and to the surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM). In this webinar we will focus on BIOMIMESYS® Adipose Tissue and on the ongoing development of Read more…
