Differentiation of Human Dermal Mesenchymal Stem Cells into Cardiomyocytes by Treatment with 5-Azacytidine: Concept for Regenerative Therapy in Myocardial Infarction
(a) Shows-phase contrast micrographs of untreated control hDMSCs with no changes in morphology. (b) shows cells on the 8th day showing stick-like morphology and cells were seen in groups. (c) shows cardiomyocyte-like appearance of hDMSCs treated with 20 μM of 5-azacytidine on day 8. These cells were seen in groups of 6-7 cells.
