From: Ethanol induces cell-cycle activity and reduces stem cell diversity to alter both regenerative capacity and differentiation potential of cerebral cortical neuroepithelial precursors

Figure 6

Quantitative analysis of flow-cytometric data for stem-cell antigen expression in cortical progenitors. Progenitors express stem-cell antigens (control). After 4 days of treatment, low doses of ethanol significantly reduced the proportion of cells expressing Sca-1, CD117/C-kit and CD133. The high dose of ethanol did not further reduce stem-cell antigen expression. Asterisks indicate statistical-significance, p < 0.05. Data were collected from at least 10,000 events/sample.
