      ApplicationIncludes 1 million viable cells of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (derived from hES cells).
      Key Applications
      • Stem Cell Culture
      Application NotesMesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are defined as a self-renewing population of adherent, multipotent progenitor cells with the capacity to differentiate into several mesenchymal cell lineages. In defined in vitro assays, mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to readily differentiate into lineage-specific cells that form bone, cartilage, fat, tendon, and muscle tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells have been isolated from adult bone marrow, adipose tissue dermis, and other connective tissues. Isolation of MSCs from these sources typically requires invasive procedures and availability of a suitable donor. The number of MSCs that can be isolated from a single donor and the capacity for long term proliferation is limited. Mesenchymal stem cells derived from human embryonic stem cells provide an attractive alternative source to a potentially unlimited supply of cells with multilineage differentiation capacity.
      EMD Millipore’s Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) are derived from MEL-1 human embryonic stem cells (hESC). The cells proliferate as an adherent cell monolayer and can be expanded for up to 10 passages. Human ESC-derived MSC express the appropriate MSC markers including H-CAM (CD44), STRO-1, Thy-1 (CD90), and M-CAM (CD146) and do not express hematopoietic cell surface markers, CD14 (present on leukocytes) and CD19 (present on B-lymphocytes) and pluripotent markers, Oct-4 and SSEA-4. Cells can readily differentiate into adipocytes and osteoctyes.
      EMD Millipore’s cryopreserved Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells derived from human ESC (Cat. No. SCC036) can be optimally expanded in low-serum media (FibroGRO LS Complete Media Kit for Culture of Human Fibroblasts, Cat. No. SCMF002). For serum-free applications, cells can also be expanded in serum-free media (FibroGRO Complete Media Kit for Culture of Human Fibroblasts, Cat. No. SCMF001).

      Product Usage Statements
      Quality AssuranceEMD Millipore’s Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells are derived from MEL-1 human embryonic stem cells and have been validated for high expression level of cell surface molecules that are present on mesenchymal stem cells: H-CAM (CD44), M-CAM (CD146), THY-1 (CD90), and STRO-1 and for their absence of hematopoietic and pluripotent cell surface markers, CD14 (present on leukocytes), CD19 (present on B-lymphocytes) and Oct-4 and SSEA-4 (present on undifferentiated human ES cells), respectively. The cells have also been validated for their self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation capacities (please refer to product manual figures for representative data). Cells display normal karyotype as assessed by G-banding of 20 metaphase cells and tested negative for mycoplasma.
