      Nestin(+) cells direct inflammatory cell migration in atherosclerosis  [Article]

      Del Toro, Raquel; Chèvre, Raphael; Rodríguez, Cristina; Ordoñez, Antonio; Martínez González, José; Andrés, Vicente; Méndez Ferrer, Simón (Nature Research, 2016)
      Atherosclerosis is a leading death cause. Endothelial and smooth muscle cells participate in atherogenesis, but it is unclear whether other mesenchymal cells contribute to this process. Bone marrow (BM) nestinþ cells ...

      Trophic restoration of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway in long-term carotid body-grafted parkinsonian rats  [Article]

      Toledo Aral, Juan José; Méndez Ferrer, Simón; Pardal Redondo, Ricardo; Echevarría Irusta, Miriam; López Barneo, José (2003)
      We studied the mechanisms underlying long-term functional recovery of hemiparkinsonian rats grafted intrastriatally with carotid body (CB) cell aggregates. Amelioration of their motor syndrome is a result of the trophic ...
