Adipogenic Differentiation of Human Adipose-Derived Stem Cells Grown as Spheroids.

Understanding the process of adipogenesis is critical if suitable therapeutics for obesity and related metabolic diseases are to be found. The current study presents proof of feasibility of creating a 3-D spheroid model using human adipose-derived stem cells (hASCs) and their subsequent adipogenic differentiation. hASC spheroids were formed atop an elastin… (More)
