Effects of different storage solutions on the behavior of UC-MSCs. A Morphology of UC-MSCs suspended in DMEM, NS, and PBS over time. Scale bar = 50 μm. B, C Calculation of the apoptosis rates of UC-MSCs suspended in DMEM, NS, and PBS over time. D Ultrastructure analysis of UC-MSCs suspended in the three different storage solutions. Scale bar = 2 μm. E Comparison of the survival rates of mice (n = 4 for each group) injected with UC-MSCs suspended in the three different storage solutions. Data are presented as the mean ± SD of three independent experiments. ns, not significant
