Lubricin… an aid to fat-derived stem cells for osteoarthritis treatment?



Musumeci and colleagues from the University of Catania published an article in the Journal Experimental Biology and Medicine. In it they showed that stem cells derived from fat were able to produce lubricin. Lubricin, a glycoprotein, is known to play an important role in joint physiology, and the loss of lubricin is thought to play a role in the pathology of osteoarthritis. Their conclusion was that adipose derived stem cells might be an important component for tissue engineering purposes.
