Supplementary Material

Supplementary material contains an overview over the tri-lineage differentiation potential of in vitro cultured p53 wild-type mMSCs to form osteocytes, chondrocytes and adipocytes (S1). Multiplex quantification of viability (S2a), cytotoxicity (S2b) and apoptosis induction (S2c) of mMSCs after γ-irradiation under normoxia and hypoxia is shown in the next figure including apoptosis- and necrosis-inducing agents as positive controls. Supplementary Figure S3 describes the effects of oxygen levels on p53 protein stabilization measured by immunohistochemistry in sham-irradiated and 4 Gy irradiated mMSCs, p53-deficient mMSCs served as negative controls. Colony formation in p53wt/wt (a) and p53-/- mMSCs (b) under hypoxic and normoxic conditions as basis for CFU-F calculation is shown in supplementary figure S4.
