Abstract

Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) are typically expanded to acquire large numbers of cells for therapeutic applications. Diverse stimuli such as sphingosylphosphocholine and vitamin C have been used to increase the production yield and regenerative potential of ASCs. In the present study, we hypothesized that ZnO nanorods have promising potential for the enhancement of ASC proliferation. ZnO nanorods were prepared using three different methods: grinding and boiling at low temperature with and without surfactant. The physicochemical properties of the nanorods such as their crystallinity, morphology, size, and solvent compatibility were evaluated, and then, the ability of the synthesized ZnO nanorods to enhance ASC proliferation was investigated. Scanning electron microscopy images of all of the ZnO powders showed rod-shaped nanoflakes with lengths of 200-500 nm. Notably, although ZnO-G produced by the grinding method was well dispersed in ethanol, atomic force microscopy images of dispersions of both ZnO-B from boiling methods and ZnO-G indicated the presence of clusters of ZnO nanorods. In contrast, ZnO-B was freely dispersible in 5% dextrose of water and dimethyl sulfoxide, whereas ZnO-G and ZnO-M, produced by boiling with ethanolamine, were not. All three types of ZnO nanorods increased the proliferation of ASCs in a dose-dependent manner. These results collectively suggest that ZnO nanorods have promising potential for use as an agent for the enhancement of ASC proliferation.
