CD26high and CD105high fibroblasts are inherently different with respect to growth and staining pattern. a Representative growth curves of CD26high (light squares) and CD105high (dark squares) fibroblasts from eighth-passage cells in triplicate (error bars represent mean +/−SD). b Endpoint number at day 12 per 24-well in triplicate of CD26high (light bars) and CD105high (dark bars) fibroblasts from three different biopsies (error bars represent mean +/−SD). CD26high fibroblasts consistently grow faster than CD105high fibroblasts and reach a higher cell density at day 9 and 12, respectively (unpaired Student’s t test, p < 0.05). c Immunoperoxidase staining and nuclei counterstain in passage 9, showing that distinct phenotypes are passed on (scale bar = 50 μm)
