Whole-transcriptome profiling reveals potential biomarkers for the reversal of thymic epithelial cell senescence by umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells


Figure 2. Interference effect of UCMSCs on senescent TECs in vitro. (A) The morphology of TECs (100×). (B) The activity of β-galactosidase was determined using β-galactosidase staining (100×). (C) P16 expression was detected by immunocytochemical staining (100×). (D) Ki67 staining was performed to observe TEC proliferation (100×) (the measured values represent the mean ± standard deviation (X ± s)) of three replicate experiments. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001).
