This study was purposed to compare the biological characteristics of umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) and bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs). The frequency of successful isolation, cell yield, colony-forming units-fibroblastics (CFU-F), proliferation capacity, immunophenotype and multi-differentiation potentials of UC-MSCs and BM-MSCs were determined by limiting dilution assay, flow cytometry, invert microscopy, RT-PCR and so on, the determined results… CONTINUE READING
