Effects of different culture constituents on growth kinetics and endothelial marker maintenance of HUVECs. Comparison of LSGS, xeno-free+bFGF, and xeno-free+bFGF+EGF culture media on cell proliferation (a) and population doubling (b) at passage 4, 5, and 6. At passage 6, HUVECs obtained from all three conditions still maintain the expression of CD31 (c). Data were expressed as (). Significant differences at and .
