Proliferation and differentiation of haASCs, htASCs and hbASCs. (A) Passage 3 (P3) of htASCs, haASCs, and hbASCs. (B) Positive Alizarin Red staining of P3-htASCs, P3-haASCs, and P3-hbASCs following 3 weeks of osteogenic induction. (C) Positive Alcian Blue staining of P3-htASCs, P3-haASCs, and P3-hbASCs following 2 weeks of chondrogenic induction. (D) Positive Oil Red O staining of P3-htASCs, P3-haASCs, and P3-hbASCs following 2 weeks of adipogenic induction.
