  1. *[18]
  2. + = > 98% of the cells are positive
  3. ± = 38% of the cells are positive
  4. - = no immunostaining was detected
  5. Cells were immunostained with the different antibodies in 7 different experiments. In each experiment a minimum of 500 cells per antibody were counted by fluorescence microscopy.
