Monocytes coexpress endothelial and macrophagocytic lineage markers and form cord-like structures in Matrigel under angiogenic conditions.


OBJECTIVES It has been shown that circulating human non-adherent CD34+ cells coexpressing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-R2 and AC133 have the capacity to differentiate into adherent mature endothelial cells. However, prior studies have demonstrated that a much bigger subset of primary adherent mononuclear cells can also form endothelial… (More)
