Figure 4: Representative images of (a) chondrogenically-induced cell pellets isolated from different cord regions: cord lining (CL), artery (A), Wharton’s jelly (WJ), vein (V), mixed cord (MC), and bMSC. Scale bar represents 1000 μm. (b) Osteogenic and adipogenic differentiated cells from MC. (c) Osteogenic and adipogenic differentiated cells from bMSCs. Scale bars represent 100 μm and 25 μm for osteogenic and adipogenic images respectively. (d) Scoring of osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation of cells isolated from different regions of the umbilical cord and cells isolated from ileac crest. +++++ denotes scoring system given to the best differentiation seen from bMSCs. denotes spontaneous differentiation. NT not tested.
