Pericytes or mesenchymal stem cells: is that the question?

Item Type:Editorial
Title:Pericytes or mesenchymal stem cells: is that the question?
Creators Name:Cano, E. and Gebala, V. and Gerhardt, H.
Abstract:For almost a decade, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were believed to reside as perivascular cells in vivo. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Guimaraes-Camboa et al. (2017) challenge this idea and use lineage tracing to demonstrate that perivascular cells do not behave as tissue-specific progenitors in various organs, despite showing MSC potential in vitro.
