The qRT-PCR analysis of expression of marker genes. Rabbit PTSCs and ATSCs were differentiated into adipocytes (PPARγ), chondrocytes (collagen II and Sox9), and osteocytes (Runx2) using their respective differentiation induction media. Compared to non-differentiated, control cells (black columns) that were grown in regular growth medium, all these genes were significantly upregulated for both PTSCs (A) and ATSCs (B), albeit at different levels (* p < 0.05). Note that for real time RT-PCR analysis, the gene expression levels were normalized to GAPDH, obtained from at least three independent experiments and presented as 2(-ΔCT).
