BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Although periodontal ligament-derived cells are expected to be a useful source of cells for periodontal tissue engineering, the characteristic changes of primary cultured… Expand
Effects of Extracellular Matrix on Differentiation of Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells into Smooth Muscle Cell Lineage: Utility for Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering
Background: Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can differentiate into various types of cell, and the extracellular matrix (ECM) is acknowledged to be important for the regulation of… Expand
