Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) derived from bone marrow are a well-characterized population of adult stem cells. MSC have the capability for renewal and differentiation into various lineages of mature cells that produce fat, cartilage, bone,tendons, and muscle. These properties, in combination with their developmental plasticity, have generated tremendous interest in regenerative medicine to replace damaged tissues. These findings have spurred the development of MSC-basedtherapies for treating wide range of non-skeletal diseases 1,2 .
iXCells Biotechnologies offers mBM-MSC isolated from mouse bone marrow. Each vialcontains >0.5 million cells. These cells are expanded in Mesenchymal Stem Cell Medium(Cat# MD-0037) and then cryopreserved at passage 2. iXCells mBM-MSC characterized by immunofluorescence and flow cytometry arestrongly positive for MSC marker CD29 [Figure 1]. These cells can further be differentiated into adipocytes using Adipocyte Differentiation Medium (Cat# MD-0005) and into osteoblastsusing Osteogenic Differentiation Medium (Cat# MD-0006) [Figure 2 and Figure 3]. mBM-MSC are negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi and can be expanded for no more than 3 passages in iXCells Mesenchymal Stem Cell Medium.
