Pericytes of Multiple Organs Do Not Behave as Mesenchymal Stem Cells In Vivo

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Guimarães-Camboa et al. permanently labeled pericytes and vascular smooth muscle of multiple organs in vivo and followed the fate of these cells in aging and injury models. Their analyses showed that, in vivo, pericytes did not behave as stem cells, challenging the current view of pericytes as tissue-resident multipotent progenitors.
