Expression of specific markers by human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) differentiating to hepatic progenitors. (A) Representative picture of four separate experiments showing transcript levels of hepatic cell markers on D8 and D16 of differentiation. (B) Representative immunofluorescence staining for human GATA binding protein (GATA)4, hepatic nuclear factor (HNF)3β, epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM), cytokeratin (CK)19, hepatic nuclear factor (HNF)4α , and HNF6.
