- Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent an attractive source of cells for cell therapy in veterinary medicine. Recent interest in stem cell biology and its therapeutic potential has led to search for accessible new sources of stem cells. Wharton‘s Jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent with specific potential to differentiate into multiple lineages.The aim of our study was the isolation, characterization and multilineage differentiation of Wharton‘s Jelly derived mesenchymal stem cells obtained from canine umbilical cord following Caesarean section.Our data confirmed that the isolated and cultivated mesenchymal stem cells have multipotent based on specific surface antigen expressing and differentiation capacity.
