Multifunctional in vivo vascular imaging using near-infrared II fluorescence
In vivo real-time epifluorescence imaging of mouse hind limb vasculatures in the second near-infrared region (NIR-II) is performed using single-walled carbon nanotubes as fluorophores. Both highExpand

Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived endothelial cells exhibit functional heterogeneity.
Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived endothelial cells (hiPSC-ECs) are promising for treatment of vascular diseases. However, hiPSC-ECs purified based on CD31 expression are comprised ofExpand

Transcriptional activation of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) in myeloid cells promotes angiogenesis through VEGF and S100A8
Significance Here, we are reporting our findings that hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) activation in monocytes promotes neovascularization in matrigel and improves blood flow in hindlimb ischemiaExpand
