Wharton's jelly mesenchymal stromal cells (WJMSCs) are considered mesenchymal, multipotent, and capable of differentiating into cells of mesodermal origin. Ectodermal differentiation from mesenchymal cells has been recently reported. Herein, we show for the first time that we can generate cytokeratin 19-positive cells and hair-like structures from WJMSCs in… CONTINUE READING
