Importantly, these abnormalities have been described as outside of MM cells influence and persist after several weeks of culture, suggesting MSCs are, or have become, abnormal ‘by themselves’. MSCs from patients show differences in gene and protein expression profiles when compared with an agematched healthy MSC donor, and functional abnormalities such as an altered ability to differentiate into osteoblastic lineage . 2) . The obvious causes of the extraordinary biological heterogeneity of MM are notably cytogenetic lesions and clonal heterogeneity of MM cells, but BMMe may also be considered.
