10 Background Chronic neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson disease or Alzheimer disease are usually termed incurable. Acute traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are also usually irreversible. Stem cell applications offer reasonable hope to treat these diseases. But neuronal stem cell sources are extremely limited in the human body.
11 Purpose of our studies Neuronal differentiation of dental pulp cells of human origin in vitro Application of these cells in vivo in a rat brain injury model
12 Neural differentiation by a new three-step protocol Neural induction was carried out first by demethylation, then by simultaneous PKC and cyclic AMP pathway activation, finally by a neurodifferentiation coctail.

20 Incorporation of pre-differentiated DPSCderived neural cells into the progenitor zones of the brain
21 Distribution of specific marker expression in engrafted Vybrant DiD pre-differentiated DPSCs in the rat brain

23 Phase-contrast Fluorescent Király et al., 2011
24 I-V relationship of voltage-dependent currents recorded from pre-differentiated engrafted DPSCs + TTX and TEA
25 Conclusions Our in vivo data demonstrate that at the single-cell level, grafted DPSC-derived neurons undergo morphological and functional integration into the host brain. Immunohistochemical and electrophysiological data both reveal that Vybrant DiD-labeled DPSCs can provide an appropriate model for studying neuro- and gliogenesis in vivo. These cells show progression in their neural specific marker expression and electrophysiological properties after brain injury, displaying a behavior very similar to that of the normal SVZ, SGZ and SCZ cells.
