Effects of FGF-2 overexpression upon the proliferative activities in rAAV-transduced, chondrogenically-induced human bone marrow aspirates. The aspirates were transduced with rAAV-lacZ or rAAV-hFGF-2 as described in Fig. 1 and kept in chondrogenic medium for 21 days. The samples were processed to evaluate the cell densities on H&E-stained histological sections (magnification ×20; representative data) with corresponding histomorphometric assessments and to monitor the DNA contents as described in the Methods. *Statistically significant compared with rAAV-lacZ
