Protective Effects of Resveratrol on TNF- -Induced Endothelial Cytotoxicity in Baboon Femoral Arterial Endothelial Cells

Figure 1

Morphology of primary baboon ECs cultured at day 3 (a) and day 7 (b). Isolated baboon femoral artery ECs showed a typical cobble stone shape (magnification ×40). Cells were stained with specific endothelial cell surface markers for VE-cadherin (c) and vWF (d) (magnification ×100). Immunofluorescence staining of baboon ECs with antibody to VE-cadherin and von Willebrand factor was conducted using an FITC-labelled secondary antibody. DAPI was used to stain the nuclei. Images were taken with an Eclipse E800 microscope.
