Apoptosis and Programmed Cell Death “PCD”

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

There are generally 2 ways that human cells can die: They are destroyed through an injury or viral agent The cells induce themselves to commit suicide Cell Death through Injury or Harmful agents Cells in our bodies that have been damaged due to injuries, such as exposure to lethal/toxic chemicals or mechanical damage tend to go through a series of changes …


The Endothelial Cells & Endothelium Layer

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Human Endothelial cells “EC” are estimated to account for nearly 1 kg of mass in the human body. This mass is about the same as our livers. Endothelial cells are thought to be produced by the splanchnopleuric mesoderm. These vital cells line the insides of all our blood vessels, including microscopic capillaries to larger arteries such as the aorta. The …


Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor G-CSF Stimulation

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor is also known as colony-stimulating factor 3,G-CSF, GCSF, GM-CSF or Rm-GSF.Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factors are a special kind of protein or “growth factor” that the body naturally manufactures in the bone marrow that is often used in cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and NK Cell Therapy. Creating White Blood Cells G-CSF’s have the ability to promote bone marrow stimulation …


Stromal Vascular Fraction SVF Cells

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Autologous cells, Glossary

Stromal vascular fraction or SVF cells is a medical term that describes a heterogeneous kind of cell that are typically found in adipose “fat” tissue. SVF cells are not the same as “stem cells” and are generally used for cosmetic purposes. These types of cells constitute about 2/3rd of all cells in the human body. SVF and Fat Stem Cells …

DNA – Deoxyribonucleic Acid mtDNA & Mitochondrial DNA

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

DNA is also known as Deoxyribonucleic Acid. DNA is considered to the building block of the body and is found in the nuclei of all cells.  Found inside the nucleus the DNA strands are sets of chromosomes. Each set of chromosomes have a constriction point from where two arms are formed called the centromere. The shorter arm of the chromosome …


Stromal Cells Role in Immunoregulatory Function

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Stromal cells are the connective tissue cells for all organs in the human body. The most common types these cells in our bodies are Pericytes and Fibroblasts (skin cells) Stromal cells can be found in: Liver Kidneys Mucous membranes Lymph nodes Prostate Ovaries Bone marrow Adipose Tissue Pancreas The primary function of the stromal cells are to support functions of …
