Bmi1-CPC upregulate pathways related to proliferation and cell motility and downregulate some pluripotent genes after cardiac injury. a Heat map of matched samples (n = 4 replicates, 2–3 mice/replicate) in the high-throughput RNAseq analysis of sorted Bmi1-CPC (YFP+) cells from adult TM-induced control mice (non-infarcted) and mice subjected to acute myocardial infarction (AMI) at 5 days post-treatment. b Heat map of molecular and cellular functions in Bmi1-CPC 5 days post-AMI, compared to counterparts from non-infarcted hearts, and classified by activation z-score. c Differential expression of genes implicated in pluripotency and muscle contractility and calcium management. Genes are classified as down- (red) and upregulated (blue) in sorted Bmi1-CPC 5 days post-AMI by comparison with Bmi1-CPC counterparts from non-infarcted hearts. d Heat map of proliferation and cell migration functions and genes related to the extracellular compartment, immunomodulation, cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors in sorted Bmi1-CPC 5 days post-AMI by comparison with Bmi1-CPC counterparts from non-infarcted hearts. Color scale intensity is related to gene log fold change (FC)
