Mesenchymal stem cell-conditioned medium enhances osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation of human embryonic stem cells and human induced pluripotent stem cells by mesodermal lineage induction.


Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have the ability to differentiate into mesenchymal lineages. In this study, we hypothesized that treatment of embryoid bodies (EBs) composed of either human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) or human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) with a hMSC-conditioned medium (CM) can stimulate the induction of the mesodermal… (More)
