Introduction: Mesenchymal bone marrow cells (BMCs) contain pluripotent progenitor cells, which differentiate into multiple lineages. In a previous study, we reported that adenovirus-mediated forced expression of steroidogenic factor-1/adrenal 4 binding protein (SF-1/Ad4BP), an essential nuclear receptor for steroidogenesis, could transform human BMCs into steroidogenic cells, suggesting a possibility of cell transplantation therapy in patients with steroid deficiency. In this ...
