Figure 1S. Effect of PDGF treatment on mouse aortic SMCs migration and proliferation. Mouse SMCs were treated with increasing doses of PDGF-BB for 24 hours and cell migration and proliferation were measured. Cells treated with 10% serum were used as the positive control. As shown, 25 ng/ml of PDGF-BB significantly increased SMCs migration (3 fold increase) with no effect on cell proliferation indicating that the observed increase in cell migration is not due to the proliferatory effect of PDGF-BB in SMC culture. Data is representative of three independent experiments (n = 3 of each culture condition).
