Angiogenic potential of early and late outgrowth endothelial progenitor cells is dependent on the time of emergence.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies have suggested that late-outgrowth endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) derived from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (hPBMNCs) might have higher angiogenic potential than classically-defined early-outgrowth EPCs (EOCs). However, it still remains unclear which of "so-called" EPC subpopulations defined in a variety of ways… (More)
