From: Mesenchymal stem cells in rabbit meniscus and bone marrow exhibit a similar feature but a heterogeneous multi-differentiation potential: superiority of meniscus as a cell source for meniscus repair

Figure 7

Histochemical staining on wounded meniscus cultured with BMSCs or MMSCs for 6 weeks. The meniscus was cut into 10 μm section and stained by toluidine blue (A, B), safranin O (C, D), fast green and safranin O (E, F), alcian blue (G, H). All imaging showed that more cartilage-related proteins were detected in the meniscus treated with MMSCs than BMSCs. (P < 0.05) (Magnification of microscopy: 20×) (Bar: 50 μm).
