It has been suggested that immunophenotypically defined lineages within the in vitro expanded adipose-derived stem cell (ASC) may play a beneficial role from the perspective of a personalized intervention. Therefore, to better understand the implications of different surface marker profiles for the functionality, we set out to examine the evolution of ASC-variants based on the co-expression of five bright or eight dim epitopes. At passages P1, P4, and P8, the co-localization of five bright markers (CD73, CD90, CD105, CD166, and CD201), or eight dim markers (CD34, CD36, CD200, CD248, CD271, CD274, CD146, and the Stro-1), was investigated by flow cytometry. Selected subpopulations were isolated using the fluorescence-activated cells sorting from the cryopreserved P4 and analyzed in terms of proliferative and clonogenic properties, trilineage differentiation, and wound healing potential. Only two of the dim epitopes were found in representative subpopulations (SP), and from the P4 onwards, two major combinations featuring the CD274+ (SP1) or the CD274+ CD146+ (SP2) emerged. Upon sorting and growth, both subpopulations assumed new but highly similar clonal profiles, consisting of the CD274+ CD146+ and the CD274+ CD146+ CD248+ phenotypes. The functional analysis revealed that the SP2 surpassed SP1 and the unfractionated cells regarding the growth rate, clonogenic activity, and the wound closure and endothelial tube formation potential. The surface epitopes may be considered a tool to enrich specific functionality and thus improve therapeutic outcomes in dedicated circumstances.
