Illumina high-throughput RNA sequencing and Gene Ontology slim classification analyses. (a) Differential gene expression analysis obtained with BaseSpace® Cufflinks Assembly. Scatter plot of the log2 (Fragments per Kilobase of sequence Per Million mapped reads, FKPM) counts of genes for control (SD − 7) and MSC-treated (MSCD − 7) non-ischemic kidneys. Dots represent the 25908 genes differentially assessed, with orange dots corresponding to the significantly differentially expressed genes (False Discovery Rate (FDR), <0,05). (b) Gene Ontology classification for biological processes of the significantly differentially expressed genes successfully mapped to a gene symbol (WEB-based GEne SeT AnaLysis Toolkit).
