CD107a-expressing NK cells after exposure to pre-treated ucMSC. a Representative FACS plots of CD107a expression on NK cells, without ucMSC (left), with untreated ucMSC (middle), with IFN-γ-treated ucMSC (right) b Graph displaying boxplots of CD107a-expressing NK cells after exposure to the various pre-treated MSC (untreated, IFN-γ, IFN-β, TGFβ, starvation, vitamin B6, Starv + VitB6, retinoic acid and combination IFN-γ + TGFβ + RA (MC)). Results are shown as means ± SEM (n = 4). *Indicates significant difference (p < 0.05).
