Background: Our previous study has confirmed that one bout of exhaustion (Ex) can cause hippocampus neurocyte damage, excessive apoptosis, and dysfunction.
OGD, a culture condition that simulates ischemia-hypoxia in vivo which can produce cellular damage along with dysfunction in oxidative and energy metabolism, has been widely used to investigate the neurocyte's injury mechanisms underlying cerebral ischemic insults.
Recently, urine-derived stem cells (USCs) which are isolated from urine have been studied as a promising candidate for many tissue engineering therapies due to their multilineage differentiation properties (into osteocytes, chondrocytes, adipocytes, neurocyte, myocytes, and endothelial cells) and sufficient proliferation activities [13, 25, 26].
