After neural precursor cells (NPCs) induced from embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have been grafted into the brain, it would still keep some potency of proliferation and differentiation, strong plasticity and integration into the host neural tissues, which would help to observe the therapeutic effect of PD.


To observe the differentiation of mouse ESCs into NPCs and the therapeutic effect of NPCs after being transplanted on the behavior of Parkinson disease (PD) rats.


Randomly and controlled animal experiment.


Staff Room of physiology and Staff Room of Neurobiology, Depayment of Basic Medical Sciences, the Third Military Medical University of Chinese PLA.MATERIALS Totally 50 healthy adult Wistar rats were chosen and randomly divided into experimental group (n=45) and control group (n=5).


① 5 μ L (2 g/L)6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) was injected into substantia nigra pars compacta and ventral tegmental area two points in the experimental group to prepare PD rats, and normal saline with the dosage of 5 μL per point was injected into the rats in the control group.Behavioral test began at 1 week after operation to measure successful rate of model establishing, once a week for 7 consecutive weeks. ② Totally 20 successful PD rat models were chosen to perform corpus striatum NPCs with the dosage of 2 μL [the count of cell suspension was (5-8)×106/μL].The other 5 rats were given 2 μL normal saline at corpus striatum as normal saline control group.MAIN OUTCOME


① Successful rate of PD model. ②Effect of NPCs transplantation on the rotation times of PD models. ③ Distribution of transplanted NPCs in vivo, and survival and differentiation.


①6 weeks later, totally 33 of 45 rats in the experimental group achieve the standard of PD model . ② About 85% of mouse ESCs were differentiated into Nestin-positive NPCs 5 days after the embryoid bodies formed in the bacterial dishes and cultured in the N2 serum-free medium. ③The rotation times of the PD rats was significantly decreased after the intracerebral transplantation of NPCs as compared with normal control group. Most of the NPCs grafted into striatum of PD rats were survived, and some were differentiated into TH-positive neurons.


The mouse ESCs-derived NPCs could be transplanted into striatum of PD rats, and then differentiated into TH-positive neurons,which leads to the obvious decrease of rotation times.
