Major characteristics of MSC and their functions in vitro and in vivo. MSC are involved in important pathways of cell renewal by mediating the regeneration of damaged or aging cells, supporting tissue repair at wound sites and modulating immune functions. Due to the migratory capabilities, MSC can interact with and support damaged normal tissue cells in the local vicinity by providing an appropriate microenvironment.
