Bone marrow stem cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a stem cell from adult bone marrow. Bone marrow is the tissue found in the hollow interior of bones. The bone marrow stroma contains mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), also known as marrow stromal cells. These are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including white blood cells (leucocytes), red blood cells (erythrocytes), cartilage cells (chondrocytes) and bone cells (osteocytes). Magnification: x6000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
