Placental Growth Factor Promotes Cardiac Muscle Repair via Enhanced Neovascularization.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS Transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) improves post-injury cardiac muscle repair using ill-defined mechanisms. Recently, we have shown that production and secretion of placental growth factor (PLGF) by MSCs play a critical role in the MSCs-mediated post-injury cardiac muscle repair. In this study, we addressed the underlying… (More)
