The adipocytes in joint fat pads share the negative features of visceral fat cells by secreting pro-inflammatory adipo- and cytokines and cause, therefore, local inflammatory processes in the joints.
The ability to grow on plastic and differentiate toward three mesodermal lineages (adipo-, osteo-, and chondrogenic) and the relevant presence and absence of specific antigens are the defining criteria of MSCs [31].
These cells are also capable to differentiate in trilineages (adipo-, chondro-, and osteogenic) [104-107].
However, the effect of soluble RAGE on MSC differentiation was analyzed, and no effect was found on the differentiation capacities of these cells into osteo-, adipo-, or chondrogenic cell lines.
Previous reported data shows that hTERT-transduced mesenchymal stem cells have prolonged replicative capacity in vitro and keep the adipo-, chondro-, and osteogenic differentiation potential in vitro and osteogenic potential in vivo [27, 28].
