The role of angiotensin II in cardiomyogenic differentiation of human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells

Abstract

Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are an attractive cell source for cardiovascular repair. Injection of MSCs into damaged heart was shown to improve cardiac functions. However, these cells are still multipotent, and hence can transdifferentiate within the heart to osteocytes, adipocytes, etc. This obstacle may be solved by prior in vitro induction of MSCs… (More)
