From: miR-20a-5p contributes to osteogenic differentiation of human dental pulp stem cells by regulating BAMBI and activating the phosphorylation of Smad5 and p38

Fig. 1

miR-20a-5p was upregulated during the osteogenesis of hDPSCs. A hDPSCs were positive for CD29 and CD44, while negative for CD34 and CD45. B The morphology of primary hDPSCs was spindle-shaped fibroblast-like. CE Osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiations were evaluated by ARS and Alcian Blue staining respectively, and Oil Red O staining was performed for testing adipogenic differentiation. F ALP and ARS staining after osteogenic induction for 1, 7, and 14 days. G RUNX2 and OPN mRNA levels after osteogenic induction for 1, 7, and 14 days. H The expression levels of miR-20a-5p from day 1 to day 14. *p <0.05 and **p <0.01 compared with osteogenic induction for 1 day
