Figure 1

Major sources of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) . The sources can be distinguished between adult tissues, preferably bone marrow (BM), peripheral blood (PB) and adipose tissue (AT) and neonatal birth-associated tissues including placenta (PL), umbilical cord (UC) and cord blood (CB). Besides cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells (CB-MSC) other stem/progenitor cell populations from cord blood also include hematopoietic stem cells CB-HSC and two endothelial populations such as endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) and endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFC).
