Note. Comparison of fenestrae diameter between control, HALI- and di-h-HALI-treated LSECs. Results are expressed as mean ± standard deviation (S.D.) and ± standard error of the mean (S.E.M). Data are obtained from three different experiments. * Significant difference in diameter of fenestrae between the control and the LSECs treated with HALI (100 nM for 2 hours) and di-h-HALI (100 nM for 2 hours), (p < 0.0001; Mann-Whitney U test – two sided).
