Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells may reduce intestinal epithelial damage in ulcerative colitis by communicating with macrophages and blocking inflammatory pathways: an analysis in silico


Figure 4. Exploration of how ADMSCs may alleviate UC. (A) Heat map, showing the expression of specific marker genes regulated by transcription factors in each ADMSCs cluster. (B) Correlation plot, showing relationships between transcription factors and ligands in ADMSCs. (C) Circos plot, showing relationships among macrophages, ADMSCs and three types of enterocytes. (D) Potential complexes between surface receptor and ligand obtained through molecular docking. ADMSCs: adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells. UC:
