Characterization of human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSCs). a Image of primary hADSCs, passage (P)5 hADSCs, and passage 10 hADSCs. The cells showed homogenous fibroblastic morphology. b Expression of cell surface markers on hADSCs. hADSCs possessed the surface marker profile typical for mesenchymal stem cells, and were positive for the mesenchymal markers CD29, CD44, CD166, CD105, and CD90, and negative for the hematopoietic and endothelial markers CD45, CD34, and CD31), and showed almost no expression of HLA-DR. ce Multiple differentiation potential of hADSCs. Under specific induction conditions, they could differentiate into adipose cells (d) osteocytes (c), and chondrocytes (e). Scale bars = 250 μm (a, P0), 100 μm (a-P5, P10, c, d, e)
