Table 2: Immunophenotyping of the fvERM outgrowing cells and primary hRPE cells. The expression of different groups of surface markers was compared between fvERM and primary hRPE cells. The two cell types showed differential expression of CD14, CD18/integrin β2, CD51/Integrin αV, and CD90/Thy-1. (Data shown represent percentage of positive cells within the total cell culture and are representative of 3 independent experiments on 3 different donor fvERM samples, mean SD; , ).
