Interaction Information:

Comment Temporary Wnt mediated down-regulation of VCAM-1 on hematopoietic cells does not prevent them from engrafting and differentiating following transplantation. Exposure to Wnt3a producing stromal cells enhanced rather than compromised the ability of hematopoietic cells to be transplanted. [Method: HSC (Thy1(lo)KSL) isolated from B6-Thy1.1 (PL) (CD45.2) mice pre-cultured on OP9-control or OP9-Wnt3a stromal cells for 5 d, transplantation, FACS analysis after 1 month]
