Stem cells from the endometrium isolated during menstrual bleeding were characterized. By their main surface markers, differentiation potential, and morphological signs these cells belong to mesenchymal stem cells. Specific features of this cell type are high clonogenic activity and low capacity to adipocyte differentiation.
