Figure 2

Cell proliferation and colony-forming characteristics of G-MSCs under inflammatory environment. (a) MTT results of G-MSC proliferation in the three groups at day 1, 3, and 7 days. Significant differences between groups are marked with an asterisk (; Dunn’s test). (b) Crystal violet staining results for colony-forming unit (CFU) assay and microscopic appearance of G-MSCs cultured with a basic medium (M1), inflammatory medium (M2), and anti-inflammatory treatment medium (M3) after 12 days.
