Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Marker Background

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stem cells that are able to self-renew and differentiate into a variety of cell types, including adipocytes (fat cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells) and osteoblasts (bone cells). Although mesenchymal stem cells are traditionally isolated from bone marrow, more recent reports have detailed the isolation of cells with MSC characteristics from other tissues, such as cord blood, peripheral blood, skeletal muscle,fetal liver and lung, and synovium. Mesenchymal stem cells have long and thin cell bodies containing a large, round nucleus with a prominent nucleolus which is surrounded by finely dispersed chromatin particles, giving the nucleus a clear appearance. Mesenchymal stem cells are a distinct entity to the mesenchyme, which is derived from the mesoderm and is able to differentiate into hematopoietic cells.
