Figure 6. Maternal age influences PDMSCs telomere length and correlates with MSCs characteristics. (A) Graph showing the telomere length for all 5 age groups (B) Schematic representation of hypothesis for reduced telomere shortening. (C) Graph Showing correlation between age factor and cellular self-renewal capacity, cellular multipotency capacity and cellular differentiation capacity. Group A: 18-21; Group B: 22-25; Group C: 26-30; Group D: 31-35; Group E: 36 and over. *, p<0.05; **, p<0.01; ***, p<0.0005; ****, p<0.0001.
