Bottom Line: We hypothesized that alginate scaffold is suitable for culturing Wharton's jelly mesenchymal stem cells (WJMSCs) and can promote the differentiation of WJMSCs into neuron-like cells.In this study, we cultured WJMSCs in a three-dimensional scaffold fabricated by 0.25% alginate and 50 mM CaCl2 in the presence of neurogenic medium containing 10 μM retinoic acid and 20 ng/mL basic fibroblast growth factor.These findings suggest that three-dimensional alginate scaffold cell culture system can induce neuronal differentiation of WJMSCs effectively.

ABSTRACT
Alginate scaffold has been considered as an appropriate biomaterial for promoting the differentiation of embryonic stem cells toward neuronal cell lineage. We hypothesized that alginate scaffold is suitable for culturing Wharton's jelly mesenchymal stem cells (WJMSCs) and can promote the differentiation of WJMSCs into neuron-like cells. In this study, we cultured WJMSCs in a three-dimensional scaffold fabricated by 0.25% alginate and 50 mM CaCl2 in the presence of neurogenic medium containing 10 μM retinoic acid and 20 ng/mL basic fibroblast growth factor. These cells were also cultured in conventional two-dimensional culture condition in the presence of neurogenic medium as controls. After 10 days, immunofluorescence staining was performed for detecting β-tubulin (marker for WJMSCs-differentiated neuron) and CD271 (motor neuron marker). β-Tubulin and CD271 expression levels were significantly greater in the WJMSCs cultured in the three-dimensional alginate scaffold than in the conventional two-dimensional culture condition. These findings suggest that three-dimensional alginate scaffold cell culture system can induce neuronal differentiation of WJMSCs effectively.

Identification of Wharton's jelly mesenchymal stem cells (WJMSCs).WJMSCs can express specific surface markers CD73, CD90, CD44 and CD105 but not CD144 (endothelial cell marker), and CD34 (hematopoietic cell marker), as determined by flow cytometry. Empty histograms indicate background staining with isotype controls and red histograms indicate the frequency of the cells stained with CD markers.

Empty histograms indicate background staining with isotype controls and red histograms indicate the frequency of the cells stained with CD markers.

Mentions: The cells were shown to be positive for CD44 (88.87%), CD105 (5.75%), CD90 (82.87%) and CD73 (97.08%). The percentages of the cells positive for CD144 (0.04%) and CD34 (1.07%) were negligible (Figure 1). Alizarin red S and oil red O staining also revealed that the cells were capable to differentiate toward osteoblasts and adipocytes, respectively (Figure 2).
