Figure 1

(a) Representative images of UCB-MSCs and WJ-MSCs from first passage cells demonstrating the fibroblast-like spindle shape after 3 and 5 days in culture. The UCB-MSCs were shown to be smaller in size and exhibited higher nuclear fluctuation (40×, scale bars 200 μm). (b) The cell growth of UCB-MSCs was significantly faster than WJ-MSCs. (c) Flow cytometry analysis expression profiles of the cell surface markers CD34, CD44, CD45, CD73, CD90, and CD105 in UCB-MSCs and WJ-MSCs. A representative histogram is presented. The colored lines and colored areas represent the expression of UCB-MSCs and WJ-MSCs, respectively. The gray areas represent the isotype negative control.
