Supplementary Material

The cells identification using flow cytometry showed that the surface markers of the cells were positive for CD44 and CD90, but negative for CD34, according with the expression of BMSC surface markers. After induced neural differentiation of SPIO-labeled BMSCs in vitro, the cells presented the appearance of neural cells and expressed NSE (neuron-specific enolase).
