Characterization of BMSCs and ADSCs using (a) flow cytometry for positive markers such as CD29, CD73, CD90, CD105, and HLA-I and negative markers such as HLA-II, CD34, and CD45. b Tri-lineage differentiation potential. (i) Osteogenesis was determined by Alizarin red S staining of the extracellular mineralized matrix. (ii) Adipogenesis was determined by using Oil red O staining of lipid droplets. (iii) Chondrogenesis was determined by Alcian blue staining of proteoglycan. All images were taken at 20× magnification. Abbreviations: ADSC adipose tissue–derived mesenchymal stem cell, BMSC bone marrow–derived mesenchymal stem cell
