Yuluan Hou, Song Guo Zheng
2019 Mesenchymal Stem Cells [Working Title]  
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from various tissues are multi-potency of self-renewal and differentiation into multi-lineages, including chondrocytes, adipocytes and osteoblasts in vitro and in vivo. In addition, these cells also display potent immune regulatory roles that benefit the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. We and others have previously identified that human gingival-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) not only share similar biological features, but also
