Mesenchymal Stem Cells
stem Cells (MSCs) are a rare type described based on their osteogenic,
myogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic differential potential. MCSs have been isolated
from bone marrow, adipose, skeletal muscle, teeth, synovial fluid and cord blood.
Human MSCs exhibit high expression levels of integrins a1,
low expression levels of a2, a3,
and do not express a4.
Additionally, these cells competently express HLA-ABC, but not HLA-DR, unless
stimulated with interferon-g.
Areas of research interest for human HSCs include bone and cartilage repair and regeneration,
cardiovascular repair, lung fibrosis, coronary artery disease, tissue injury,
aplastic anemia, muscular dystropy, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's Disease and liver regeneration.
passage, human cord blood messenchymal stem cells in culture appear
fibroblastic and homogeneous in size and morphology.
