Fat-derived adult mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into different phenotypes reflecting their potential to regenerate various skeletal tissues. These properties together with the association of adipose with skeletal tissues formed the basis of our study to establish an experimental model for using fat-derived stromal cells to undergo osteogenic differentiation in vitro under the influence of either growth and differentiation factor-5 (GDF-5) or bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2… CONTINUE READING
