Stem cells are unspecialized cells in living bodies which have high potential of division,and can be differentiated under special physiological circumstances or in the presence of special factors to yield a variety of matured cells or specialized tissues. Some of the most crucial stem cells are mesenchymal stem cells (abbreviated as MSC). MSCshave the property ofheterogenisis and fibrolastosis; and are self-renewal and can be differentiated. Over the years,many initial and most flourished studies were performed on MSc which were separated from bone marrow; But mesenchymal stem cells in addition to bone marrow also gained from tissue such as umbilical cord and adipose tissue and so in recent years have attracted attention of many researchers.Adipose tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells have certain surface markers namely CD73, CD44, and CD90 but lack hypotonic surfacemarkers such as CD11c, CD31, CD34, CD45, CD80 and CD86.In addition, mesodermal cells have the power to differentiate into a variety of tissues; either into other mesodermal cell types or into non-mesodermal tissues.These cells can also be used in tissue engineering and cell therapy to repair or replace damaged tissueswith healthy tissues, as well as in the manufacture of vital drugs.The aim of this study is to evaluate the Features of adipose tissue and umbilical cord Wharton's jelly that makes these tissues more remarkable than other tissues.
