MSCs mainly originate from two types of perivascular cells, pericytes ([CD45.sup.-][CD31.sup.-][CD146.sup.+][CD34.sup.-]) and adventitial cells ([CD45.sup.-][CD31.sup.-][CD146.sup.-][CD34.sup.+]), which contain the in situ counterpart of MSCs in human organs and yield a progeny of multilineage mesodermal progenitor cells [12, 13].
