Mouse Mesenchymal Stem Cells (Compact Bones)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are a population of well characterized adult stem cells. Under proper induction, they can differentiate into many cell types including fat, cartilage, bone, tendons, and muscle1, 2. Due to their differentiation capacities, there is a growing interest in in the potential use of these cells for regenerative medicine.
The mouse MSCs (compact bones) from PrimCells,LLC are derived from tibia and femur bones of young C57/B6 mice (3~4 months), which are highly more proliferative than traditional bone marrow drived cells. These cells are cryopreserved at very early passages (1-2) and can maintain their pluripotency under suggested conditions for at least 8 passages. They maintain the multipotency and can, upon proper induction, differentiate into cells of multiple lineages.
