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 progenitor cells (EPC). To determine the origin of the latter cell population we tested the hypothesis: do monocytes as a firmly adherent and… CONTINUE READING
