Features and immunophenotypic mesenchymal profile of human-derived adipose mesenchymal stem cell (ADSCs). (A) Immunophenotypic mesenchymal profile of ADSCs shows that these cells express a high percentage of positivity for CD73, CD90, CD105, and a low-positivity fraction for CD14, CD19, CD34, CD45 and HLA-DR. After selective stimulation, ADSCs exhibited adipogenic, chondrogenic and osteogenic potential, which was demonstrated by Oil Red O staining of lipid droplets (B), aggrecan deposition (C), and Alizarin Red stained calcium nodules (D).
