Stem cells hold great promise in tissue engineering for repairing tissues damaged by disease or injury. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells able to proliferate and differentiate into multiple mesodermal tissues such as bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, and fat. We have previously reported that the low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (L-NGFR or CD271) defines a subset of cells with high proliferative, clonogenic, and multipotential differentiation ability in adult bone… CONTINUE READING
