Gene expression of angiogenic factors by huVECs cocultured with term hAECs under basal conditions. ((a)–(f)) huVECs expressed VEGFR1, VEGFR2, PDGFRα, PDGFRβ, Tie-2, and FOCX1. Following coculture with term hAECs, ((c) and (e)) gene expression of PDGFRα increased (), but gene expression of Tie-2 decreased (), ((a), (b), (d), and (f)) while there was no change in gene expression of VEGFR1, VEGFR2, PDGFRβ, and FOXC1.
