Supplementary Figure 1. Expression of matrix proteins during chondrogenic differentiation of hMSC spheroids 3-D spheroid cultures of hMSC were cultured in chondrogenic medium for a period of 28 days and mRNA was isolated at day 1, 14, 21 and 28. Expression of COL2A1 (I), ACAN (II) and MIA/CD-RAP (III) strongly increased over the course of the experiment confirming the chondrogenic differentiation process. (Data are given as means ± SEM).
