The H3K4me3 ChIP-Seq data of chicken follicular mesenchymal cells and male germ cells were acquired, and we also included H3K27me3 ChIP-Seq data of chicken germ cells to demonstrate the effect of bivalent H3K4me3/H3K27me3 on gene transcription.
Recent evidence from studies of other fibrotic disorders, including lung and liver fibrosis [18], supports the view that TGF-[beta]1 pathway involvement in SG fibrogenesis may occur via promotion of the SG epithelial cell (SGEC) transition to form mesenchymal cells with a myofibroblast-like phenotype [19-21].
In the current research, those mesenchymal cells isolated from the apical papilla formed significant alizarin red-positive mineralized nodes and oil red O-positive lipid droplets after induction in vitro.
