Isolation and differentiation potential of fibroblast-like stromal cells derived from human skin.
ABSTRACT Isolation of progenitor cell population is the first step in performing stem cell research. Progenitors isolated using different methods usually exhibit different characteristics and varied differentiation potentials. Here, we describe a method for isolation of the multipotent stromal cells from human foreskin tissues. The isolation rate is high and the obtained cells could be easily maintained in DMEM without supplement with specific growth factors.
