Figure 1. VEGF121-induced in vitro angiogenesis. Supernatants from cells transfected with pVEGF121, and controls were added to HMECs cultured in three-dimensional Matrigel. Cells were grown in the presence of (A) supernatant from pAEC-D2-transfected cells; (B) 0.5 ng/mL VEGF165 protein; and VEGF121-containing supernatant at (C) 1:2 dilution, and (D) not diluted. Photographs were taken 16-20 h after treatment with 40X magnification.
