Human fetal heart-derived adherent cells with characteristics similar to mesenchymal progenitor cells.

Abstract

This study was aimed to investigate if human heart harbored a population of primitive undifferentiated cells with the characteristics of MPC. Cells were isolated from human fetal heart and were cultured under conditions appropriate for bone marrow-derived MPCs. Their morphology, phenotypes and functions were tested by methods developed for MPC from other… (More)
