However, most stem cell sources consist of heterogenous cell populations with varying differentiation and regeneration potential. The availability of defined cell populations with specific differentiation capacities will therefore be crucial for the targeted regeneration of tissues. In turn, this will facilitate a controlled and optimized growth and differentiation of stem cells into their target tissue types, especially during ex vivo tissue development. The separation of defined pre-committed stem and progenitor cell populations derived from stem cell populations with pluripotent or multipotent differentiation potential would be beneficial for future tissue regeneration applications. Miltenyi Biotec offers numerous innovative products for the isolation of stem and progenitor cells as well as for sample preparation, cell analysis, cell culture, and molecular analysis. 3

  5. 5. Sample preparation,cell separation, cell analysis Human stem cells—sample preparation, cell separation and analysis Human stem cells in tissue regeneration research Stem and progenitor cells have the potential to revolutionize tissue regeneration and engineering in the future. To support research into the biology of stem cells and to explore their extraordinary capacity for future tissue regeneration applications, it is crucial to develop reliable methods for the specific isolation of distinct stem and progenitor cell populations with defined differentiation potential. Likewise, the isolation of their differentiated progenies is of immense interest for research into future clinical applications. For stem cell research, Miltenyi Biotec has developed numerous innovative tools that allow straightforward sample preparation, cell separation, as well as subsequent cell analysis. Sample preparation For a broad range of tissues that are of interest for current tissue regeneration research, the ideal cell sources have yet to be determined. Therefore, the isolation of stem cells from embryonic, fetal, and adult sources is of great importance. Preparing suitable suspensions of viable single cells from tissues is a critical step for the successful isolation of tissue-specific stem cells. Miltenyi Biotec offers the new gentleMACS™ Dissociator for the gentle and efficient dissociation of tissues. In addition, the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kits, Pre-Separation Filters, and the Dead Cell Removal Kit allow an optimal preparation of single-cell suspensions for subsequent separation. gentleMACS™ Dissociator The gentleMACS™ Dissociator is a benchtop instrument for the automated dissociation of tissues. Two types of unique gentleMACS Tubes are available for the instrument and enable the time-saving and easy dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions or homogenization of tissues to lysates in a closed system. The range of protocols available for the gentle and efficient dissociation of tissues is continuously expanding. Protocols are optimized to yield single-cell suspensions with high viability rate. The gentleMACS Dissociator can further be used for the homogenization of tissues or cells to extract biomolecules for molecular biology experiments, such as the isolation of total RNA or mRNA. gentleMACS Dissociator—features at a glance • Time-saving automated tissue dissociation or homogenization The gentleMACS Dissociator—the gentle way of automated tissue dissociation • Standardized procedure • Reliable and reproducible results • High level of user safety • Sterile sample handling Cell separation and analysis For research into future tissue regeneration applications, it is crucial to develop reliable methods for the specific isolation of distinct stem and progenitor cell populations with defined differentiation potential as well as their differentiated progenies. Miltenyi Biotec offers numerous tools for the isolation of stem and progenitor cells according to specific cell surface markers. For maximum flexibility, indirect magnetic labeling with MACS MicroBeads allows the use of any primary antibody. Monoclonal or polyclonal primary antibodies of choice can be either unconjugated, biotinylated, or fluorochrome-conjugated. Furthermore, a large variety of products is available for the analysis of stem and progenitor cells.6
  6. 6. Cell separation and analysis Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells— separation and analysis Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells Pluripotent embryonic stem cells (ESCs), derived from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst, and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are known for their capacity to differentiate into virtually all cell types of the body and to self-renew while maintaining a stable karyotype. Therefore, these cells are of special interest for basic tissue regeneration research to understand developmental processes, and might provide the basis for clinical applications Cell separation in the future. For these applications it is crucial to use homogenous cell populations. MACS® Cell analysis Technology enables the isolation of numerous particular cell types and subsets at high microRNA expression profiling purity—ready for in vitro and animal experiments. Gene expression analysis Pluripotent cells express the surface markers SSEA-3, SSEA-4, Tra-1-60, Tra-1-81, but not CD15 (SSEA-1).1–3 The positive selection, for example, according to the expression of SSEA-4 using MACS MicroBeads for indirect magnetic labeling is a proven strategy for the isolation of pluripotent cells.4,5 These markers can also be used for the depletion of pluripotent cells from differentiated cultures, thereby reducing the risk of teratoma formation in transplantation experiments. For more information on Miltenyi Biotec products for ESC and iPS cell research, please refer to the After their in vitro differentiation, ESC- or iPS-derived cells exhibit a broad cellular corresponding brochure that is available for download at www.miltenyibiotec.com. heterogeneity with respect to developmental stages and lineage specification. This leads to highly heterogenous cell populations. Cell separation according to the expression of certain surface markers can enrich target cells or deplete unwanted populations: Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can be isolated from differentiated ESCs by positive selection according to the expression of, for example, CD34 or CD133.6–12 Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) can be separated from ESC cultures by using, for example, the cell surface markers CD347,8,13 and CD31. Early neural cell populations were enriched with FORSE-1 antibodies and MicroBeads for indirect magnetic labeling. Various markers that indicate the developmental maturity after neuronal differentiation have been described: CD133+, CD271+, or CD146+ cells showed characteristics of neural stem or precursor cells, A2B5+ cells showed characteristics of glial-restricted precursor cells, whereas CD56+, PSA- NCAM+, or CD24+ cells showed characteristics of differentiated neurons.14 Cardiomyocytes might be separable from heterogenous ESC cultures according to CD56+ expression.15 7
  7. 7. Cell separation and analysis Mesenchymal stromal cells—separation and analysis Mesenchymal stromal cells Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) can be obtained from a variety of tissue sources including bone marrow aspirate16,17, umbilical cord blood17, and even lipoaspirate18,19. MSCs have shown the potential to differentiate into a variety of nonhematopoietic tissue types, including bone or cartilage. Numerous cell surface antigens have been used for the isolation of MSCs from various sources. Sample preparation Cell separation Bone marrow Cell analysis CD271 is a well-known marker for the isolation of MSCs from bone marrow. 20–22 Cell culture Marrow stromal antigen-1 (MSCA-1), which is recognized by clone W8B2, was shown to be Expression profiling restricted to MSCs in the CD271bright population in bone marrow.22 These CD271brightCD45dim MSCs show a higher clonogenic capacity compared to the CD271+CD45+ fraction.22 Therefore, MSCA-1 is a suitable marker for the identification of MSCs with a high proliferative potential. Additional markers for the isolation of MSCs from bone marrow include CD117 23, CD105 24,25, For more information on Miltenyi Biotec Stro-1 26 , CD146 27, and CD13328. products for MSC research, please refer to the corresponding brochure available for download at www.miltenyibiotec.com. Multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs) can be enriched from bone marrow by depletion of CD235a (glycophorin A) and CD45. 33 Cord blood BM-MNCs before separation CD133 is a suitable marker for the identification of MSCs from cord blood.17 Lipoaspirate Various strategies can be pursued for the isolation of MSCs from lipoaspirate: positive CD45-FITC selection of CD271+ cells 29 or CD146+ cells, positive selection of CD34+ cells30, as well as depletion of CD45+ and CD31+ cells. 18,31 Dental pulp STRO-1 and CD146 are appropriate markers for the separation of MSCs from dental pulp. 27 Anti-MSCA-1 (W8B2)-APC MSCA-1+ cells Amniocentesis cultures MSC-like fetal-derived stem cells from amniocentesis cultures can be isolated according to the expression of CD117 and share many markers of adult and embryonic stem cells. Fetal- derived stem cells retain a multipotent ability to differentiate into cell types that represent CD45-FITC all embryonic germ layers. 32 Anti-MSCA-1 (W8B2)-APC MSCA-1 (W8B2)+ cells were isolated from human bone marrow mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) using the MSC Research Tool Box – MSCA-1 (W8B2). Cells were stained with Anti-MSCA-1 (W8B2)-APC and CD45-FITC.8
  8. 8. Endothelial progenitor cells—separation and analysis Endothelial progenitor cells Regeneration of vascular tissue is an important topic in therapeutic research, especially for the potential treatment of peripheral vascular disease and the revascularization of ischemic tissues, for example, in the heart. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) have been suggested to play an important role in postnatal neoangiogenesis and neovascularization. Therefore, EPCs have come into focus for the potential treatment of ischemic or injured tissue and for the coating of scaffolds to increase biocompatibility of biomaterials. EPCs are defined by the expression of the markers CD34 and CD309 (VEGFR-2/KDR). Analysis of CD133 expression allows the distinction between early and matured EPCs in human. 34,35 EPCs were enriched according to their expression of CD34 or CD133 from different hematopoietic sources34–38,43. CD133+ cells have been used in studies that show a significantly improved vascularSPECT (single-photon emission computed tomographic) scan from the posteriorwall area of a human heart. Courtesy of Prof. Gustav Steinhoff, Rostock, Germany. network restoration in an ischemic hind limb rat model38 and an ischemic heart mouse model39. Furthermore, CD133+ cells were used in combination with biodegradable scaffolds for the three- dimensional tissue engineering of microvessels.40 Safety and feasibility and, moreover, efficacy was shown in several clinical trials investigating CD133+ cell therapy combined with coronary artery bypass grafting41,42 and cell therapy alone43. 9
  9. 9. Tissue regeneration research Tissue regeneration research—examples Tissue-resident stem cells have been found in almost any tissue. A A better understanding of their biology and the development of methods for their isolation and expansion might therefore be useful for tissue regeneration. In addition, stem cells from the hematopoietic system have been described to contribute to the regeneration of tissues. Following, a few examples for research on the regeneration of certain tissues are presented. Liver tissue In contrast to other organs, the liver is known for its capacity to regenerate in situ. This is due to the population of stem cells within the liver. These stem cells have been successfully isolated using MACS® Technology by targeting CD326 (EpCAM)44,45, CD13345, or CD117.46 The transplantation of bone marrow–derived B CD133 + cells has been shown to benefit the expansion of liver tissue in situ prior to partial hepatectomy.47 Muscle tissue The identification and isolation of muscle stem and progenitor cells by the markers CD13348 and CD5649,50, respectively, is of importance for research on smooth, skeletal, and even cardiac muscle tissue regeneration. After transplantation into mouse models, human CD133 + stem cells from peripheral blood and circulating endothelial progenitor cells (cEPCs) from umbilical cord blood were capable of regenerating in situ dystrophic CD133+ cells, isolated from mobilized peripheral blood, gave rise to adherent cells muscle tissue51 and skeletal muscle52, respectively. Cardiac after 3–5 weeks of cultivation. muscle regeneration is a prime goal in cardiovascular disease These cells were able to differentiate into hepatocyte-like cells. (A) The cells are stained for hepatocyte nuclear factor-3 (FITC), albumin (Cy3), and research; functional cardiomyocytes can be generated in vitro nuclei (DAPI).

CD133+ cells isolated from mobilized PBMCs were cultivated for 3–5 weeks. Adherent cells were able to differentiate into skeletal muscle–like cells. The cells are stained for desmin (FITC), actin (Cy3), and nuclei (DAPI)(200×). (Courtesy of Selim Kuçi, Tübingen, Germany.)10
  10. 10. Tissue regeneration research—examples Neural tissue A The regeneration of neural tissue has far-reaching consequences for the potential treatment of debilitating neurodegenerative diseases or injuries, including stroke and spinal cord damage. Human neural stem cells that were isolated from fetal brain according to CD133 expression have been shown to differentiate in vitro and in vivo into cells with neural phenotypes and even restore the function of damaged spinal tissue in mice. 55 Furthermore, CD133 + cells isolated from mobilized peripheral blood56 or skin57 can be differentiated into neural lineages. Neuronal-committed precursors from mammalian brain can be magnetically isolated for research purposes via the depletion of A2B5 + cells followed by the positive selection of PSA-NCAM+ cells.58 B CCD133+ cells isolated from mobilized PBMCs were cultivated for 3–5 weeks.Adherent cells were able to differentiate into neural-like cells.(A) Astrocyte-like cells stained for GFAP (Cy3), EPO (FITC), and nuclei (DAPI).(B) Oligodendrocyte-like cells stained with GFAP (FITC), MBP (Cy3), and DAPI(nuclei).(C) Neuronal-like cells stained for betatubulin III (Cy3) and nuclei (DAPI)(200×).(Courtesy of Selim Kuçi, Tübingen, Germany.)For more information on Miltenyi Biotecproducts for neuroscience research, please referto the corresponding brochure that is availablefor download at www.miltenyibiotec.com. 11

  13. 13. ProductsMACS® Technology MACS® Products for cell culture NH media for the enumeration, expansion, and MACS® NH Media enable the differentiation of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) into functional nonhematopoietic (NH) cell types. differentiation of MSCs MSCs are of great importance to researchers working towards the development of novel tissue regeneration therapies. However, in order to properly evaluate the potential of MSCs completely, it is crucial to establish standardized and reproducible procedures for stem cell isolation and cultivation. MACS® NH Stem Cell Media are optimized for the most convenient enumeration and expansion of nonhematopoietic (NH) stem cells from a variety of sources, including bone marrow aspirate, lipoaspirate, or potentially any NH stem cell source, MSC enumeration e.g., bone marrow, NH CFU-F Medium tissue or organ within the human body. Miltenyi Biotec also lipoaspirate offers media to evaluate the differentiation potential of NH stem cells during in vitro cultivation. Media are available for the reliable and reproducible differentiation of NH stem cells to adipocyte, chondrocyte, or osteoblast lineages. These media can also be used to define the full differentation capacity of an NH stem cell population: MSCs must be able to form all three cell lineages.
