EDT-MSCs differentiate into committed mesenchymal tissues. (a) Oil Red O staining in adipogenic induced and control EDT-MSC. The red-brown vacuoles demonstrate differentiation into fat-producing cells. Original magnification 100x. (b) Alizarin Red staining showing calcium deposits in induced cells when compared with noninduced controls. Original magnification 50x. (c) Alcian Blue staining outlining sulfated proteoglycans expression suggesting differentiation into a chondrogenic tissue. Original magnification 100x.
