Differential spectrum of MSCs determined by Immunofluorescence. Nestin, GFAP, MAP-2 and NeuN were involved to detect neural progenitors, glial cells, and mature neurons. In the CART treated group (A), the percentage of Nestin (green) positive cells occupied 25.4 ± 2.1% in Day 3 and 47.1 ± 1.9% in Day 6. (B) The NeuN (green) positive rate was 32.1 ± 2.3% in 3 days and 40.3 ± 2.7% in 6 days. The differentiation ratio resembled that of bFGF/EGF. (C) MAP-2 (red) was detected in 30.8 ± 4.7% and 41.2 ± 3.1% of all cells in Day 3 and Day 6. (D) GFAP (green) ranks 20.5 ± 2.5% in 3 days and 21.3 ± 2.2% in 6 days. The converted rate resembled that of bFGF/EGF. The untreated group was used as a control..
