...repair. A subset of bone marrow cells, called bone marrowderived
side population (BM-SP) cells, make up only 0.01-0.05% of whole bone marrow. In mice, these cells have previously been reported to restore expression of the protein that is lacking in muscular dystrophy. Many studies have shown that stem cells are ab...

stem cells fluoresce green, while those cells that reside in the lung do not. Most of the collagen-producing fibroblasts observed in the lungs of these mice fluoresced green, indicating that they were of bone marrow origin. In an accompanying comment...
