Immunoelectron microscopic localization of Collagen type XV during human mesenchymal stem cells mineralization.

Purpose/Aim of the study. Collagen type XV (ColXV) was identified, in our previews studies, as a novel component of bone extracellular matrix. The present study aims to investigate ColXV localization during mineralization of osteodifferentiated human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs).
