Fluorescence-acitvated cell sorting (FACS) analysis of the expression of surface antigens on cells isolated from all four donor tissues of one single patient. A minimum amount of 5 × 105 cells from bone marrow (a), hyaline cartilage (b), the LCF (c) and the joint capsule (d) were examined for the (co-)expression of surface antigens CD44, CD73 (CD44/CD73), CD90 and CD105 (CD90/CD105). The results were pictured using the FLowJo 10.5.3 Software by FlowJo LLC. While almost all cells (≥ 95%) were positive for the surface markers CD44, CD90 and CD105 the percentage of CD73+ cells ranged from about 53–80% depending on the donor tissue. CD, cluster of differentiation. LCF, ligamentum capitits femoris
