EC Accelerate Quiescent NSC Extravasation from Microbead. (A) Schematic overview depicting the transplantation target site (striatum) in the adult mouse brain for control, free cells, and cell encapsulated microbeads with transplantation parameters outlined in (B). (C) Confocal images of GFP-tagged NSC and Hoechst mono- and co-cultures encapsulated in microbeads to observe cell extravasation at 2 days post transplantation and (D) expression of GFP-tagged NSC, Sox2, Ki67, and Hoechst to observe cell proliferation at 3 days post transplantation. Scale bar (25 µm) representative of all images.
