BACKGROUND Recent reports refute the classic paradigm by which human heart is unable to repair itself following disease or injury. Cardiac and noncardiac stem cells with cardiac regeneration potential have been documented. We studied whether untreated mesenchymal stem cells express markers of cardiomyogenic lineage in vitro. METHODS Mesenchymal stem cells were obtained from human iliac crest marrow aspirates. Cells were isolated and characterized using flow cytometry by surface expression of… CONTINUE READING
