Chondrogenic differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells.
By Nicola Foster on 08/28/2020
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human

Added to culture medium on days 1-3 at 10 µM to induced chondrogenic differentiation in an immortalized hBMSC cell line. After 7 days there was increased sulfated GAG production compared to basic controls and increased DNA yield compared to cells cultured in traditional chondrogenic differentiation medium.

Stem Cells Scientific Review

Written by Kirsty E. Clarke, Victoria B. Christie, Andy Whiting and Stefan A. Przyborski, this review provides an overview of the use of small molecules in the control of stem cell growth and differentiation. Key signaling pathways are highlighted, and the regulation of ES cell self-renewal and somatic cell reprogramming is discussed. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.

Stem Cell Workflow Poster

Stem Cell Workflow Poster

Stem cells have potential as a source of cells and tissues for research and treatment of disease. This poster summarizes some key protocols demonstrating the use of small molecules across the stem cell workflow, from reprogramming, through self-renewal, storage and differentiation to verification. Advantages of using small molecules are also highlighted.
