Differentiation of Passage 6 mMSCs into adipocytes, osteocytes and chondrocytes. Phase-contrast microscopy images of: adipogenic differentiation (A-C; Oil Red O staining of undifferentiated mMSCs (A) and differentiated adipocytes (C); unstained differentiated adipocytes (B)); osteogenic differentiation (D-F; Alizarin Red S staining of undifferentiated mMSCs (D) and differentiated osteocytes (F); unstained differentiated osteocytes (E)). (G-I) Alcian Blue staining of cytospins prepared from undifferentiated mMSCs (G) and differentiated chondrocytes (H); phase-contrast microscopy image of the Alcian Blue stained cytospin of differentiated chondrocytes (I).
