Figure 3

Expression levels of adipogenic markers in tendon-derived fibroblasts (TDF) and bone marrow-derived stromal cells (BMSC). Cells were cultured for 21 days on osteogenic (N = 5 for TDF, N = 4 for BMSC), adipogenic (N = 5 for TDF, N = 5 for BMSC), or chondrogenic (N = 3 for TDF, N = 5 for BMSC) induction medium. The relative, GAPDH-normalized, expression levels of fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4)(A) and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ (PPARG)(B) is displayed on the vertical axis. * Indicates a P-value<0.05.
