Stem/progenitor cells identified in the human endometrium. (1) Endometrium is composed of endometrial epithelium, functionalis and basalis; (2) Epithelial progenitor cells are postulated to be located in the base of the glands in the basalis; (3) Perivascular SUSD2+ (W5C5 antibody) cells with in vitro and in vivo mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) properties are found in basalis and functionalis; (4) PDGFR-β/CD140b+CD146+ endometrial MSCs (eMSCs) are pericytes. ESP cells consist of CD31+ endothelial cells and CD140b+CD146+ pericytes.
