Conditioned Media from Human Umbilical Cord Blood-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Inhibits Melanogenesis by Promoting Proteasomal Degradation of MITF.
This study showed that conditioned media from human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells inhibits melanogenesis by modulating microphthalmia-associated transcription factor(MITF) via ERK signaling pathway.

Thrombospondin-2 secreted by human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells promotes chondrogenic differentiation.
Although therapeutic effect of mesenchymal stem cells on cartilage disorders is well known, a lot of studies are being progressed on its mechanism. In this study, a specific protein (TSP-2) expressed by cord blood mesenchymal cells by joint fluid component was identified and the regeneration mechanism of injured cartilage was determined by secretion of this protein.

Comparative analysis of human mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow, adipose tissue, and umbilical cord blood as sources of cell therapy.
Mesenchymal stem cells are isolated and cultured from various sources such as bone marrow, cord blood and fat. This study compared surface antigen expression, differentiation ability, proliferation capacity, clonality, tolerance for aging, and paracrine activity and identified a protein effective to treatment inflammation from cord blood derived mesenchymal stem cell.

Cryopreserved Cord Blood Progenitors and Their Cell Adhesion Molecules Are Increased by Coculture With Osteoblasts and Parathyroid Hormone.
Despite the cord blood(CB) cells induces lower immunogenicity, CB transplantation is also associated with delayed neutrophil and platelet recovery relative to bone marrow transplantation. This suggests a possibility to increase the engraftment of hematopoietic cells in CB by increasing the abundances of primitive cells bearing adhesion molecules in the presence of hPTH.
