Figure 2

Ex vivo endothelial cells proliferate during angiogenesis in the rat mesentery culture model. Qualitative comparison of Day 3 (Ex Vivo) (A) and Day 3 (In Vivo) (B) tissues revealed similar proliferation patterns along capillary sprouts. Arrows identify the distal edges of capillary sprouts. Scale bars = 20 µm. (C) Quantitative comparison of the number of BrdU-positive nuclei per sprout length for Day 3 (Ex Vivo) and Day 3 (In Vivo) groups. Black and white bars represent the Day 3 (Ex Vivo) and Day 3 (In Vivo) group, respectively. “ns” indicates no significant difference (p > 0.05) by Student’s t-test.
