Tissue Repair


repair & healing

of injured tissues

Repair responses following injury inflammation

Repair responses following Injury/Inflammation



Growth of cells and tissues to replace lost structures

Requires an intact connective tissue scaffold

Regulation of cell populations

Regulation of cell populations

Types of cells


  • Labile cells

  • Stable cells

  • Permanent cells

Labile cells

Labile cells

  • have a high rate of loss and replacement and therefore high capacity for regeneration.

  • squamous and glandular epithelia

  • haemopoeitic cells in bone marrow

Stable cells

Stable cells

  • do not normally proliferate but can be stimulated to do so after damage.

  • renal tubular cells,

  • hepatocytes,

  • osteoblasts,

  • endothelial cells,

  • fibroblasts.

Permanent cells

Permanent cells

  • Permanent cells : unable to divide after initial development and therefore cannot regenerate when some are lost.

  • Neurons

  • Skeletal & cardiac muscle

Cell cycle

Cell Cycle

Dolly the sheep, the first cloneIan Wilmut, who led the team that created Dolly at Scotland's Roslin Institute in 1996Dolly Parton(singer) after whom the sheep was named

Stem cells


Regenerative Medicine

Stem Cells are characterised by their prolonged self renewal capacity and by their asymmetric replication

Embryonic / Adult Stem cells

Embryonic stem cells


Pluripotent cells that give rise to all tissues of the body

To develop Knockout mice

To repopulate damaged organs

Therapeutic Cloning

Stem cell research

The Pros

large potential for finding treatments and cures to a vast array of diseases; cancers; diabetes, spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer's, MS, Huntington's, Parkinson's and many more.

The use of adult-derived stem cells, from blood, skin and other tissues, has been demonstrated to be effective for treating different diseases in animal models.

Umbilical cord-derived stem cells have also been isolated and utilized for various experimental treatments.

The Cons

The major con to stem-cell research is from the religious stance that life begins at conception and to destroy it to be used for research is immoral and wrong. Currently, the use of embryonic stem cells for research involves the destruction of the blastocysts formed from laboratory-fertilized human eggs.

Stem Cell Research

Adult stem cells


  • More restricted differentiation capacity

  • Usually lineage specific

  • Located in sites called Niches

  • Bone Marrow Haematopoietic stem cells

  • Bone Marrow Stromal stem cells

  • Transdifferentiation / Developmental plasticity

  • Multipotent Adult Progenitor Cells

Stem cell niches

Differentiation of embryonic cells and generation of tissue cells by bone marrow precursors

Growth factors

Growth Factors

  • Polypeptides

  • Some act on many cell types

  • Others act on restricted cellular targets

  • Cell locomotion, contractility, differentiation, angiogenesis, growth receptors and transcription factors

Signaling mechanisms in cell growth

Signaling mechanisms in Cell Growth

Signal transduction pathways

Signal Transduction Pathways

  • Receptors with Tyrosine kinase activity

  • Receptors lacking Tyrosine kinase activity

  • Seven transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors

  • Steroid Hormone receptors

Transcription factors

Transcription Factors

  • C-myc

  • C-jun

  • C-fos

  • p53
