Optimizing the Yield of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Purification from Bone Marrow
Dr. Dan Link and Dr. Bryan Anthony
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells that have many functions such as supporting hematopoeitic stem cells.
Methods - Flushing, crushing, centrifugation experiment

Results show that centrifugation results in greatest yield of MSCs, but difference is not statistically significant. Difference between crushing and flushing is statistically significant.
The differences between the methods and time points are minimal.
Because this data can be considered biologically significant, we can conclude that centrifuging the cells, treating the bones with collagenase for 1 hour, and treating the marrow with collagenase for 10 minutes results in the highest yield of MSCs.
MSCs are extremely rare (1 in 50,000)
Goal: Purify MSCs in order to perform further experiments on them, such as analyzing genes using a gene chip.
Optimize MSC purification
-Method of bone marrow extraction
-Flushing, crushing, centrifugation
-Collagenase digestion optimization
p < 0.05
The data is not statistically significant, but there is a trend that seems to show that the hour incubation period results in the greatest yield of MSCs.
Extraction of Bone Marrow from mice
-Mice were sacrificed
-Femur, tibia, and upper pelvis of both legs were removed
-Either flushing, crushing, or centrifuging
-Pre-sorting using magnetic beads before samples are run on the flow cytometer
-Analyze using a gene chip
10 minute, 30 minute, and 60 minute incubation periods are all similar
