Figure 3: Mouse bone marrow-derived NG2-expressing cells (BM-NG2+cells) exhibit self-renewal and yield CD90+ mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Mouse bone marrow from two C57Bl/6J mice (> 8 wks) was used to obtain NG2+ cells. The rest of procedures to isolate NG2+cells were performed as described above. Representative images show that mouse bone marrow-derived NG2- expressing cells exhibited self-renewal and yield CD90+ MSCs.
