Where are stem cells found?



Mesenchymal stem cells, cells that have potent reparative potential are located in a number of
areas including deciduous teeth (baby teeth), the periosteum (the surface) of bone, fat, bone marrow,
and the synovium- the lining of joints. Stem cells found in the synovial membrane have been found in one
study to proliferate extensively in culture and may maintain their differentiation potential. The authors
concluded these synovial membrane stem cells may play a regenerative role in arthritis.
