Multidifferentiation of UC-, DP-, and MB-MSCs. (a) Osteogenic differentiation, in which the cells were stained with Alizarin red (100x); (b) adipogenic differentiation in which the cells were stained with Oil Red O (100x). The differentiation capacity was semiquantified by enzyme immunoassay analyzer. Each experiment was performed in triplicate: with P6 of corresponding MSCs; with P10 of corresponding MSCs; with DP-MSCs at corresponding passage; with MB-MSCs at corresponding passage, . UC-MSCs: umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells; DP-MSCs: dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells; MB-MSCs: menstrual blood mesenchymal stem cells; P: passage.
