Fabrication of Tongue Extracellular Matrix and Reconstitution of Tongue Squamous Cell Carcinoma In Vitro Yupeng Yao1, Weifan Lin1, Yan Zhang1 1Key Laboratory of Gene Engineering of the Ministry of Education, State Key Laboratory of Biocontrol, School of Life Sciences, Sun Yat-sen University A method is shown here for the preparation of the tongue extracellular matrix (TEM) with efficient decellularization. The TEM can be used as functional scaffolds for the reconstruction of a tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) model under static or stirred culture conditions.

The Lacrimal Gland: Development, Wound Repair and Regeneration Biotechnology Letters. Jul, 2017 | Pubmed ID: 28353146 The lacrimal gland (LG) is important as it has a significant role in maintaining the stability of the microenvironment of the ocular surface. When a loss of function occurs in the LG, a significant reduction in tear production and dry eye disease (DED) may occur. A mammalian LG is a secretory gland consisting of acini and ducts. The interaction between epithelial cells and mesenchymal cells plays a major role during development and the self-restoration process of the gland. Some factors, such as fibroblast growth factor 10 and bone morphogenetic protein 7, are associated with these processes. Though several strategies for LG regeneration have been established, there is still a long way to go before there is clarity about LG stem cells. In this review, current knowledge on LG development, LG self-repair, DED and correlative regeneration therapies are summarized.
