General description

Bone marrow is the major blood creating organ, but in addition to supporting hematopoietic growth and differentiation, marrow stromal cells can be induced to produce cells of other connective tissues, such as bone, cartilage, and fat, as well as cells from neuroectodermal (neurons) and endodermal (hepatocytes) lineages. The potential of HMSCs to maintain multipotency and proliferate extensively in vitro provides new avenues for cell-based therapy in the restoration of damaged or diseased tissue.

HMSC have been utilized to investigate the effects of TGF-β1 on differentiation toward different lineages, and show that it inhibits adipogenic differentiation and induces either chondrogenic, osteogenic or smooth muscle cell differentiation, depending the specific culture conditions (Zhao, 2011); to develop methods to assess differentiation potential of stem cells without the differentiation induction (Hirota, 2011); to compare HLA expression profiles of bone marrow-derived and adipose-derived stem cells (Purandare, 2013); and to design heart valve-shaped tri-layered collagen-based constructs for stem cell seeding and differentiation to use in heart valve tissue engineering (Tedder, 2010, 2011).
