Influence of exposure to magnetic fields on differentiation of human MSCs. Exposition to magnetic fields led to a significantly (*) enhanced expression of lipoprotein lipase and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma under adipogenic differentiation of labeled MSCs (JPR-MSC + m(0 h)) compared to unlabeled MSCs (MSC + m(0 h)) and compared to labeled MSCs without exposition to magnetic fields (JPR-MSC - m). (A). Exposition to magnetic fields led to a reduced expression of alkaline phosphatase under osteogenic differentiation of unlabeled MSCs (MSC + m(0 h)) compared to unlabeled MSCs without exposition to magnetic fields (MSC - m) (B). Labeled (JPR-MSC + m(0 h)) and unlabeled MSCs (MSC + m(0 h)) showed no significant differences in expression of collagen 2 under exposition to magnetic fields (C). Error bars: SEM.
