Characteristics of rat bone marrow-derived MSCs. A MSCs showed a typical spindle-shaped appearance and undifferentiated MSCs. B MSCs displayed multilineage differentiation potential, osteocytes, as evidenced by the presence of calcium deposits stained with Alizarin Red staining. C MSCs differentiated into adipocytes, as indicated by the presence of lipid droplets stained with Oil Red O; scale bar 200 μm. D Immunophenotypic characterization of MSCs (passage 3) was performed by flow cytometry. MSCs associated with markers were positive for CD29 and CD90 and were negative for CD34 and CD45
