Using nestin-driven green fluorescent protein (ND-GFP) transgenic mice, we previously demonstrated an inter-hair-follicle blood vessel network that expresses ND-GFP and appears to originate from ND-GFP expressing hair-follicle stem cells. We report here that angiogenesis of transplanted skin or healing wounds originates from this ND-GFP-expressing microvasculature network. ND-GFP-expressing blood vessels were visualized growing from the ND-GFP-expressing hair-follicle stem cell area and re… CONTINUE READING
