Evaluating the Impact of Human Amnion Epithelial Cells on Angiogenesis
The vascular tube formation in huVECs on Matrigel in vitro. ((a) and (b)) huVECs formed longer vascular tubules following culture in term hAEC-conditioned media compared to control media (), and tubule lengths were stable for 40 hours. huVECs cultured in preterm hAEC-conditioned media did not support tubule formation where tubule length was significantly reduced at 20 hours (). (c) Representative pictures of vascular tubules of huVECs following culture in term hAEC-conditioned media and control media ().
