Abstract

Disclosed is a method for distinguishing a mesenchymal stem cell comprising, using at least one gene selected from the genes having the nucleotide sequences indicated by the accession numbers shown in Table 1 as a distinguish marker, detecting the difference in expression of the distinguish marker between a mesenchymal stem cell and a connective tissue cell to distinguish the mesenchymal stem cell from the connective tissue cell. This method enables to distinguish an undifferentiated mesenchymal stem cell from other connective tissue cell such as fibroblasts, osteoblasts, chondrocytes and adipose cells with good accuracy. A mesenchymal stem cell given by this method or a composition comprising the mesenchymal stem sell can be used as a therapeutic for use in the regenerative medicine.
