I'll add more on the things mentioned below later but right now Cquan has repeatedly deleted information added to this page - our lab is looking at targeting mesenchymal stem cells, is this promotional or informational? Also our lab generally uses percoll before plating cells Tom Kean 23:48, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Ideas for things to be added:

  • Markers of MSCs (Sca1+Lin-; Stro-1; etc).
  • Notes on uses of MSCs cell-based therapy
  • Normal role of MSCs in vivo
  • Historical background to MSCs (identification, culturing etc.)

  • Heterologous - Homologous - Homogenous ?
Homogenous/heterogenous for cells (homologous for DNA) - I fixed the text too. Dr Aaron 06:12, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Clearer definition[edit]

I think it would be incredibly meaningful for the definition of mesenchymal stem cell to be defined in a more clear and concise manner. Currently, it is very ambiguous and in some ways misleading to the reader. Additionally I think it would be useful to write more about the sources of these stem cells. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoebehunter40 (talkcontribs) 15:18, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

New Talk comments go at the bottom of this page and are signed and dated by clicking on the pen icon at the top left of the edit box. You are apparently a student learning to contribute to Wikipedia. It would be appropriate to suggest an edit here on the Talk page, using your own definition and sources that adhere to WP:MEDRS, i.e., reviews and authoritative expert summaries. --Zefr (talk) 15:29, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
