MSCs derived from different tissue sources display distinct tube formation capacities on Matrigel in vitro. MSCs were seeded on Matrigel in vitro at 2 × 104 cells/well. MSCs could form tube-like structures on Matrigel temporarily (a). Representative photographs were taken after 12 hours of incubation (scale bar = 500 μm). b Numbers of tube structures were counted and analyzed (BMSC, n = 2; AMSC, UMSC, and PMSC, n = 3). Each sample was performed in triplicate (*p < 0.05, ****p < 0.0001). MSC mesenchymal stem cells, BMSC bone marrow-derived MSCs, AMSC adipose tissue-derived MSCs, UMSC umbilical cord-derived MSCs, PMSC placental chorionic villi-derived MSCs
