Abstract

Normal and pathological passaged BMdSCs were successfully grown to confluence over 3 passages and induced to differentiate down the osteogenic and adipogenic lineage with the formation of mineral deposit and multidroplet cell clusters respectively. JMML BMdSCs had a significantly increased growth rate and MDS BMdSCs had a significantly increased number of small colonies in comparison to normal. Lymphoma BMdSCs had an increased CD105, CD49b and CD45 antigenic expression; myeloma BMdSCs had an increased CD105 antigenic expression, and the lymphoproliferative BMdSCs had a significantly reduced CD90, CD105 and CD49b expression in comparison to normal. With osteogenic induction, AML and lymphoma (mineralised) cultures had a reduced osteocalcin gene expression in comparison to normal. With adipogenic induction, AML and lymphoma cultures showed reduced multidroplet cell cluster formation with comparable gene expression to normal.
