Low Ethanol Concentrations Promote Endothelial Progenitor Cell Capacity and Reparative Function

Figure 5

Ethanol-dependent ECFC cell surface expression of VE-cadherin, VCAM, and PECAM1. (a) ECFCs were treated with or without 1% ethanol and incubated with antibodies (anti-VE-cadherin, anti-VCAM, and anti-PECAM1) and analyzed by flow cytometry. Expression levels of VCAM, VE-cadherin, and PCAM are shown. Results of at least 8 independent experiments represent cell surface expression in % shown as . vs. untreated control. (b) Flow cytometry analysis of PCAM, VCAM, and VE-cadherin on ECFC cell surface after treatment with EtOH.
