Supplementary Material

Bone marrow derived MSCs were positive for CD44, CD73, CD166, and CD105 and negative for CD14, CD45, CD34, and CD31 as shown by flow cytometry analysis (Figure S1). The ability of RA MSCs to differentiate into osteogenic or adipogenic lineages was indistinguishable from that of controls as shown by cytochemical staining and expression of Runx2 and PPAR?? (Figure S2). Cytokines for each dot in the protein array (in Result 3.4.) are shown in Figure S3.
