Global gene expression analysis of sMC
. (a) Hierarchical clustering of global gene expression of various preparations of MCs and non-MCs. Three-round amplified products of sMC1–3, mMC1–3, skin MCs and BMMCs, and the standard products of BMMCs, peritoneal MCs, macrophages and fibroblasts were analyzed. (b) The principal component analysis (PCA) reveals different gene expression profiles of sMC1–3, mMC1–3, and two preparations of BMMCs. The blue dotted square indicates mMCs, the red dotted square indicates sMCs, and the black dotted square indicates BMMCs.
