BACKGROUND: Whether the differences exist between adipose-derived stem cells isolated from different parts of rats when cultured in vitro has been poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: To compare the growth characteristics and adipogenic ability of adipose-derived stem cells isolated from different parts of rats. METHODS: Freshly isolated adipose-derived stem cells were obtained from 5 mL inguinal groove and greater omentum adipose tissue of F344 rats using type collagenase digestion method. Then, adipose-derived stem cells were counted and cultured in vitro. Morphological and growth characteristics of adipose-derived stem cells derived from the two sites were observed. 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay was utilized to examine the doubling time of adipose-derived stem cells from different parts. The passage 2 adipose-derived stem cells were induced adipogenically. Fourteen days after being induced, the differentiated cells were stained with oil red O and the positive cells were counted. The adipogenic differentiation ability of adipose-derived stem cells from the different parts was assessed. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: (1) The number of adipose-derived stem cells from the greater omentum fat tissue in the same group was (281±10)×107/L, which was significantly higher than that from the inguinal groove fat tissue [(85±10)×107/L] (P< 0.01). Adipose-derived stem cells from the greater omentum and inguinal groove fat tissue achieved the exponential growth period on days 5 and 6, respectively, and achieved the platform period on days 9 and 10, respectively. The corresponding doubling time was 50 hours and 60 hours, respectively. After being passaged, adipose-derived stem cells grew in fibroblast-like shape actively. The adipogenic differentiation rate of adipose-derived stem cells from the greater omentum fat tissue was higher than that from the inguinal groove fat tissue [(38.90±2.86)% vs. (35.30±3.29)%, P< 0.01]. This shows that the number and the adipogenic differentiation ability of adipose-derived stem cells from different parts of the same F344 rat are different. Source
