Figure 2

Effect of serum from pre-eclamptic and normal pregnant women in EVT/DEC interaction. Analysis of the effect of sera obtained from PE or normal women on the adhesion of EVTs to DECs (a), to C1q (c) and on transendothelial migration through DECs (b). EVTs were preincubated with PE or control sera (1 : 50). The results are expressed as percent of adhesion in reference to a standard curve. For each group, the line in the middle of the box represents the median. The lower and the upper edges of the box are the 1st and 3rd quartile, respectively.
