Comparative Analysis of Biological Properties of Large-Scale Expanded Adult Neural Crest-Derived Stem Cells Isolated from Human Hair Follicle and Skin Dermis
Cell morphology of adult NCSCs isolated from hair follicle and skin dermis. (a) Hair follicle explant demonstrates net outgrowth of HF NCSCs; (b) SD NCSCs within 3D fibrin hydrogel; (c) fibroblast-like morphology of HF NCSCs at passage 1; (d) polygonal morphology of SD NCSCs at passage 1. Phase-contrast microscopy. Scale bar: (a, b) 200 μm; (c, d) 50 μm.
