Characterization of Cardiac-Resident Progenitor Cells Expressing High Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Activity
(a)/(b) Flow cytometric analysis of atrial cells expanded in MesenCult (P11) or RPMI/FCS medium (P13). (c) Percentages of cells (mean, SD) expressing the indicated markers (data from 3 separate experiments in MesenCult). (d) Two-color analysis of pericyte/perivascular markers (NG2, CD146, and CD140b; numbers are cell percentages). (e) c-kit immunostaining of expanded cells. Nuclear staining with Hoechst 33342 (CTRL, secondary Ab only as a control).
