Identification of a specific ahNSCs gene expression pattern.

<p>(<b>A</b>) Unsupervised hiererarchical clustering analysis based on the global gene expression of five samples of ahNSCs (green) and 31 normal human tissue samples (in triplicate). ahNSCs clustered together with brain-, spinal cord- and tissue foetal brain tissue (<b>B</b>) Unsupervised hierarchical clustering analysis based on gene expression of selected genes (rank product analysis, 1% FDR) in five ahNSCs samples and tissue samples (in triplicate) from brain, foetal brain, and spinal cord. The ahNSCs clustered separately from the tissues. (<b>C</b>) Heat-map illustrating the expression of typical stem cell markers in the ahNSCs, brain tissue and foetal brain tissue.</p>
