Improving the effectiveness of adipose-derived human mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (AMSCs) for skeletal therapies requires a detailed molecular characterization of mechanisms supporting cell proliferation and multi-potency of AMSCs. We compared gene expression data obtained by high-throughput RNA sequencing and RT-qPCR of actively proliferating and uninduced post-proliferative AMSCs with flow cytometry data for mesenchymal stem cell markers (e.g., CD44, CD73/NT5E, CD90/THY1 a...
