Low bioavailability and/or survival at the injury site of transplanted stem cells necessitate its delivery using a biocompatible, biodegradable cell delivery vehicle. In this dataset, we report the application of a porous biocompatible, biodegradable polymer network that successfully delivers bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) at the wound site of a murine excisional splint wound model. In this data article, we are providing the additional data of the reference article "Porous polymer scaffold for on-site delivery of stem cells - protects from oxidative stress and potentiates wound tissue repair" (Ramasatyaveni et al., 2016) [1]. This data consists of the characterization of bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) showing the pluripotency and stem cell-specific surface markers. Image analysis of the cellular penetration into PEG-PU polymer network and the mechanism via enzymatic activation of MMP-2 and MMP-13 are reported. In addition, we provide a comparison of various routes of transplantation-mediated BMSCs engraftment in the murine model using bone marrow transplantation chimeras. Furthermore, we included in this dataset the engraftment of BMSCs expressing Sca-1+Lin-CD133+CD90.2+ in post-surgery day 10.
