(A) UCSC screenshot of the human CARMEN locus. The 10 CARMEN isoforms, that is, CARMEN1, 2, and 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 are indicated in red. The 2 miRNAs, MIR-143/145, are indicated in green. (B) Expression of CARMEN transcripts (CARMEN1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) in proliferating (Expansion; white), and in differentiated fetal and adult CPCs without prior DLL1 stimulation and cultured in the absence of DAPT (Differentiation; black) or after stimulation with DLL1 and cultured in presence of DAPT (DLL1/DAPT/Differentiation; light gray). Data represent mean ± SEM; *p < 0.05 as compared with proliferating CPCs (n = 4). (C) Expression of CARMEN7, MIR-143, MIR-145, ELK1, and KLF4 transcripts in proliferating CPCs (Expansion [Exp]; black) and in differentiated adult CPCs (white and light gray), exposed or not to DLL1 in the absence or presence of DAPT. Data represent mean ± SEM; *p < 0.05 as compared with proliferating CPCs; ‡p < 0.05 as compared with differentiating unstimulated (None; white) CPCs in absence of DAPT (n = 3).
