Four weeks after cell transplantation, rhEPO expression promotes neo-angiogenesis in vivo . (A) α-Smooth muscle actin staining (brown) in infarcted hearts (infarct border zones). Arrows show stained blood vessels. (a) Saline injection; (b) non-transduced cell injection; (c) rhEPO-transduced cell injection; (d) quantitative analysis. (B) Lectin (BS-1) staining (brown) in infarcted hearts (infarct border zones). Arrows show stained blood vessels. (a) Saline injection; (b) non-transduced cell injection; (c) rhEPO-transduced cell injection; (d) quantitative analysis.
