Isolation of Small SSEA-4-Positive Putative Stem Cells from the Ovarian Surface Epithelium of Adult Human Ovaries by Two Different Methods

Figure 7

Expression of genes related to pluripotency and embryonic stem cells of putative ovarian stem cells (OSC1-3; green) in comparison with human embryonic stem cells (ESC1-3; violet) and human adult (dermal) fibroblasts (FB1-3; blue), revealed by RT-PCR (Fluidigm). Two OSC samples clustered with hESCs and one OSC sample clustered with fibroblasts. (a) Heatmap clustering. (b) Hierarchical clustering. (c) Principal component analysis (PCA).
