Ultrasound-Targeted Microbubble Destruction Improves the Migration and Homing of Mesenchymal Stem Cells after Myocardial Infarction by Upregulating SDF-1/CXCR4: A Pilot Study
Effect of UTMD on the migration of MSCs. (a) Representative images of migrated MSCs in the MTE groups. Normal or infarcted myocardial tissue extracts were present in the lower chamber. The migrated cells were stained by crystal violet and observed under a light microscope. (b) Quantification of migrated MSCs in the supernatant groups. (c) Quantification of migrated MSCs in the MTE part groups. The scale bar represents 100 μm. All values are expressed as the mean ± SD. ; ; .
