Background Enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) has been an important reporter gene for gene therapy. Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are ideal target cells in cell transplantation and tissue engineering. We investigated their biological characteristics and differentiation mediated by PLEGFP-N1 retroviral transduction.
Methods hMSCs were isolated from human bone marrow by density gradient fractionation and adherence to plastic flasks. Individual colonies were selected and cultured in tissue dishes. Packaging cells PT67 were transfected by PLEGFP-N1 retroviral vector, and hMSCs were transduced by viral supernatant infection. Meanwhile, hMSCs-EGFP were identified by Immune phenotypes and whether it could differentiate into osteoblasts or adipocytes under conditioned media was investigated.
Results The rate of stably transduced hMSCs-EGFP was up to 96% after being screened by G418. hMSCs-EGFP exhibited fibroblast-like morphological features. Flow cytometric analyses showed that hMSCs-EGFP were positive for CD73, CD105, CD166, CD90, and CD44, but negative for CD34, and CD45. In addition, it could functionally be induced into osteocytes or adipocytes under conditioned media. These biological features of hMSCs-EGFP were consistent with those of hMSCs.
Conclusions hMSCs transduced by PLEGFP-N1 retroviral vector can be used in vivo securely because they can maintain their biological characteristics and differentiation. It is a simple and reliable way to trace the changes of hMSCs in vivo by EGFP during cell transplantation and gene therapy.
