Introduction: Previous investigations have indicated that the presence of BIO (6-Bromoindirubin-3-Oxime) in medium of some cell culture enhances the cell proliferation and viability. The aim of the present study was to investigate the BIO effects on in vitro expansion of rat marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) culture. Methods: In the present experimental study, bone marrow cells from 7 rats were plated in the presence of 0.05, 0.01, 0.1, 1 and 1.5 µM of BIO and expanded through three successive subcultures. During the cultivation period, the cultures were statistically compared in terms of some indices of cell growth including the diameter and number of colonies, population doubling number (PDN) and the number of viable cells. Passaged-3 cells from all groups were examined whether or not they could differentiate into bone and adipose cells. Results: According to our results, the largest colonies were formed in the cultures with 0.1 and 1 µm BIO with diameter of respectively 1262.27±43.96 and 1335.71 ± 19.16 micrometer (P<0.05). These two groups were also superior in terms of the colonies numbers. During three successive passages, significantly more PDN was occurred in 0.1 and 1 µM BIO- treated cultures than the others (P<0.05). Additionally in these two BIO-treated cultures, the number of viable cells was significantly higher compared to other BIO-treated cultures as well as the control group (P<0.05). Alizarin red staining for bone and oil red for adipose cells indicated the differentiation potential of the cells in all studied groups Conclusion: Taken together it seems that the BIO presence in marrow cell cultures enhances the cell in vitro expansion and viability.

Introduction: In this study, the effect of para-nonylphenol as an environmental pollutant on viability, morphology and proliferation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells was investigated. Methods: Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells of rat were treated with the 0.5, 1, 2.5, 3.5 and 5 μM of paranonylphenol for a period of 21 days, then the viability of the cells were estimated using trypan blue and MTT methods. After choosing the effective dose, the integration of the DNA was investigated using comet assay and agarose gel electrophoresis. Mechanisms of cell death were also investigated by TUNEL assay and presence of caspase activity. Results: The results showed that para-nonylphenol caused significant dose dependent reduction of viability and proliferation of the cells. Comet assay, agarose gel electrophoresis and TUNEL test showed that the DNA of the cells were damaged and broken after treatment with 0.5 and 2.5 μM of para-nonylphenol. In addition, activated caspase-3 was observed in the cytoplasm of treated cells. Conclusion: This study showed that a very low concentration of para-nonylphenol has drastic effects on bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. This chemical is used in formulation of cosmetics and detergents and therfore may have detrimental effects on the viability and proliferation of stem cells.
