Low Ethanol Concentrations Promote Endothelial Progenitor Cell Capacity and Reparative Function
Effect of ethanol on ECFC migration. ECFCs were cultured in endothelial basal medium (EBM) +5% FBS and in the absence or presence of 0.5% or 1% ethanol directly prior assay start or 24 h before. The migration of ECFC into the scratch wound was assessed after incubation for 8 h. Results of at least 6 independent experiments represent percent wound filling. vs. untreated control.
