Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Here you can find different types of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), medium to grow them and RNA, DNA and protein derived from the different MSC.

Mesenchymal stem cells, or Multipotent mesenchymal stramal cells, are well-characterized population of adult stem cells. They have the potential to develop into mature cells that produce fat, cartilage, bone, tendons, and muscle. These properties in combination with their developmental plasticity have generated tremendous interest in the potential use of mesenchymal stem cells to replace damaged tissues. Depending on the culture conditions, MSC differentiate into various types of cells, they have the capability for renewal and differentiation into various lineages of mesenchymal tissues. In essence MSC could be cultured to expand their numbers then transplanted to the injured site or after seeding in/on shaped biomimetic scaffold to generate appropriate tissue constructs.
