Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are important biological tools for regenerative medicine or cell therapies. Static Magnetic
Field (SMF) is one of the biophysiological stimulants to modulate physiological processes in different cell lines.
In vitro conditions, SMFs, according to their intensity and duration, change cellular membrane polarization, oxidative
product concentrations, gene expression patterns and cell propagation rates. In this study, human bone marrow derived
MSCs were grown under 328 mT SMF by using Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnets to investigate SMF influance
on their proliferation rates, morphologies, osteogenic differantiation capacity. The proliferation rate was analysed by MTT
24 hours and 6 days after SMF induction. Although preliminary results showed that cells with spindle shapes in SMF
treated group gained an oriantation according to magnetic field direction, SMF influence did not significantly changed
proliferation rates. It was analyzed and compared alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity in the cells grown for 14 days
under both continual SMF and chemically osteogenic induction. It was observed that ALP activity in this group decreased
compared to the control groups. Also, Alizarin Red S staining showed that mineralization decreased in the cells grown
under the same conditions compared to control cells.
