The expression of pluripotency genes and triploblastic progenitor marker genes in WJ MSCs (Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells) in the early and middle phases. (a–c) There was a downward trend in the expression of Oct3/4, Nanog, and Vimentin in the middle phase compared to the early phase. (d–f) The expression of GATA4, Nestin, and AFP in the early and middle phases.
