Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are multipotent cells which can be induced to differentiate into various types of cells. The most popular source of MSCs is bone marrow. However, some cells obtained from adipose tissue may have potential to grow into bone and cartilage [Zuk P.A. et al. Tissue Engineering 7: 2001, 211-225], and thus, this type of tissue can be a promising source of cells for tissue engineering, especially that collecting adipose tissue is less invasive and less painful for patients when compared to bone marrow.
