Genes for cell-surface and extracellular space proteins and transcriptional regulators clustered according to their expression profiles in the mouse MAPC/ESC/MSC comparison and in rat rMAPC-1 and rClone-2. (a, b) Genes expressed in mMAPCs at levels at least twofold higher than in ESCs and MSCs. (c, d) Genes expressed in mMAPC/ESCs at levels at least twofold higher than in MSCs. (e, f) Genes expressed in mMAPC/MSCs at levels at least twofold higher than in ESCs. (g, h) Genes expressed at levels at least twofold higher in rMAPC-1 than in rClone-2. (i, j) Genes expressed in rClone-2 at levels at least twofold higher than in rMAPC-1. The yellow bars indicate genes for proteins localized to the extracellular space; the blue bars indicate genes for transcriptional regulators. Red and green indicate higher and lower levels of expression, respectively.
