Human Wharton's Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Human wharton's jelly mesenchymal stem cells are isolated from a single donor umbilical cord. The cord is dissected to remove blood vessels and preserve the substance between the vessels, which is the wharton's jelly. The wharton's jelly is then digested enzymatically, plated and passed thrice to yield a homogenous population. Unlike other MSC populations, these cells are slower growing and cannot be grown to extremely high densities. These cells are well suited to differentiate into hepatocyte like cells.
