A. Functional pathways. Graph shows the number of AMC and RMC genes enriched in different functions. It can be noted that the AMC apart from proliferation and differentiation express a high number of genes involved in cell death whereas the RMC express a high number of cytoskeletal genes. B. Stemness of AMC and RMC. Venn diagrams represent the share of Embryonic (ESC), Neural (NSC) and Hematopoietic (HSC) stem cell genes in AMC and RMC. The AMC express a high number of stem cell genes compared to the RMC. The RMC express more HSC-specific genes than NSC- and ESC- specific genes.
