Efficient replacing of fetal bovine serum with human platelet releasate during propagation and differentiation of human bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells to functional hepatocyte-like cells.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to find out substitution effect of fetal bovine serum (FBS) with human platelet releasate (HPR) as a major growth factor source during expansion and differentiation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSC) into hepatocytes. METHODS Propagation and differentiation potential of hBMSCs into hepatocyte… (More)
