(D, E and F) shows the morphology of the cells differentiated on the fibronectin coated dishes from the 3 sources
cbin10056-0002-sm-SupFig-S2.tif4957KFigure S2: Quantitative assessment of the percentage positive cells for neural progenitor marker and mature neuronal marker. All the markers were expressed significantly in Wharton's jelly compared to AD and bone marrow. (A) Sox2 expression was significantly higher in WJ compared to AD and bone marrow (P < 0.007) (B) pax6 expression (P < 0.005) (C) Musashi -1 (P < 0.001) (D) Nestin (E) NFL (P < 0.001) (F) b III tubulin (P < 0.001)
