Flow cytometry analysis of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC) from normal and cerebral ischemic rats. (A) analysis of cell surface markers in NormBM-MSC (B) analysis of cell surface markers in ischBM-BMSC (C) comparative analysis of cell surface markers in NormBM-MSC and IschBM-MSC (D-E) FACS analyses of total cell populations in cultured NormBM-MSC (D) and IschBM-MSC (E). Cells (passages 1-3) were lifted, labeled with antibodies against the indicated antigens, and analyzed by flow cytometry. Only representative examples featuring antigen expression profiles are shown. Abbreviations: FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate; PE, phycoerythrin.
