USCs surface marker expression patterns resemble those of ASCs. a Representative immunofluorescence images of USCs and ASCs as control are shown. USCs, as well as ASCs, stained positive for the typical MSC markers CD44, CD73, CD90 and CD105, and negative for the hematopoietic markers CD14, CD34, CD117 and CD133. Additionally, the mesenchymal markers Vimentin and Collagen I stained positive both in USCs and ASCs. b Representative flow cytometry histograms of USCs stained for CD73 and CD90 reveal a single homogenous population of cells expressing both mesenchymal markers. Two replicates from other donors showed similar results
