a, b BMP-2 and TGF-β1 expression in MSCs from different sources before and after osteogenic induction was detected by western blot. The expression of both BMP-2 and TGF-β1 was higher in B-BM-MSCs than in BM-MSCs before and after 14 days of osteogenic induction (p < 0.05 and p < 0.001, respectively). n = 4. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001. A and B show the expression levels of BM-MSCs and B-BM-MSCs, respectively, before osteogenic induction, and C and D show the expression of the indicated molecules in BM-MSCs and B-BM-MSCs, respectively, after osteogenic induction. IBM-MSC, osteogenic-induced bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell; IB-BM-MSC, osteogenic induced-bone-bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell
