Supplementary Material

Total TDSCs colonies stained with Methyl violet, TDSCs at passage 3 preserved good colongenicity, as shown by Fig. 1 in the Supplementary data. The multi-differentiationpotential of the TDSCs was tested in vitro for adipogenesis, chondrogenesis, and osteogenesis, TDSCs at passage 3 were also proved with excellent multi-lineage differentiation potential, as shown by Fig. 2 in the Supplementary data.
