9) The ability of the BMSCs to differentiate into osteoblasts was confirmed based on the presence of calcium phosphate and Alizarin Red staining.
Dual staining of corneal endothelium with trypan blue and alizarin red S: importance of pH for the dye-lake reaction.
13 We showed BMSCs could differentiate into osteoblast lineage secreting mineral matrix as one of the major components of bone matrix (calcium phosphate) detected by Alizarin red S staining as described before.
The osteogenic capacity of the cells, as assessed by alizarin red staining of in vitro mineralization, was decreased in Pb-exposed mice but was not significantly changed with HFD (Figure 4B).
Mineralization in the induced osteoblasts was determined by Alizarin Red S staining as previously described (Li et al.
Fig 3A-C shows the images of SPK samples excited for Alizarin red, tetracycline and calcein respectively; Fig3D shows superimposition image of A, B and C.
Histological staining attested to the functional competency of the differentiated cells, Oil Red-O showing multiple small lipid droplets in most cells, while low alizarin red staining indicating insignificant osteogenesis.
The differentiated AMSCs were stained with Oil Red O for analysis of lipid droplet in adipogenic induction or Alizarin Red for calcium in osteogenic induction.
Fig 2) When given in high doses (100mg/kg) Zidovudine caused heavy osteoporosis with extremely low bone mineral density as seen in deficient staining of bones by alizarin red.
