What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

Mesenchymal stem cells are bone marrow-derived, self-renewing, and multipotent progenitors. Mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to be capable of differentiating into multiple cell types including adipocytes, chondrocytes, osteocytes, and cardiomyocytes. R&D Systems offers kits for the maintenance and expansion of mesenchymal stem cells, as well as kits and reagents designed to promote and identify the progression of mesenchymal stem cells into osteogenic, adipogenic, and chondrogenic lineages.
