Figure 2 Evaluation of the NMP system and BMMSCs. (A) Morphology characteristics of third-generation BMMSCs; (B) Adipogenic induction; (C) Osteogenic induction; (D) Bright-field image of GFP-BMMSCs; (E) Fluorescent image of GFP-BMMSCs showing that >85% of the cells are transduced with GFP; (F) Fluorescent image of DCD donor liver perfused by BMMSCs combined with NMP at 6 h, the arrow indicates GFP-BMMSCs colonized in hepatic sinusoids. BMMSCs – bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells; GFP – green fluorescent protein; NMP – normothermic machine perfusion.
