Digital optical imaging of green fluorescent proteins for tracking vascular gene expression: feasibility study in rabbit and human cell models.

Abstract

PURPOSE To investigate the feasibility of using a sensitive digital optical imaging technique to detect green fluorescent protein (GFP) expressed in rabbit vasculature and human arterial smooth muscle cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS A GFP plasmid was transfected into human arterial smooth muscle cells to obtain a GFP-smooth muscle cell solution. This… (More)
