Hierarchical clustering analysis. Expression of the selected 29 genes reveals five major clusters and three of them were specific for each cell population. HUVECs exclusively expressed angiogenic-associated cluster (pale blue). A cluster of three genes (CSF1R, SPP1, and OCT-4A; green) was specific for MPCs and silenced after mesengenic differentiation in P2-MSCs, which upregulated the MSC/pericyte-associated cluster (red). As expected, MPCs were more hierarchically closely associated with P2-MSCs.
