Third-trimester AF-MSCs express genes associated with renal-specific biological processes and have high overlap with kidney cells. Cluster dendrogram shows close relationship of AF-MSCs with UM51 and HREpCs (a), confirmed by Pearson correlation coefficients (b). Venn diagram analysis extracted 409 genes shared amongst AF-MSCs, UM51 and HREpCs (red circle) (c). Top 20 GO terms of the common 409 genes listed depending on their –log(p value), renal-related GOs indicated with red bars (d). Significant KEGG pathways for the 409 genes. Stem cell-related pathways shaded red (e).
