Expression of characteristic eEPC and OEC genes determined by RT-PCR. (A) Expression of mRNAs distinctive for eEPCs and OECs determined by semiquantitative PCR: eEPC highly expressed genes HLA-DRA, LYZ, and CD14; OECs highly expressed genes CAV1, VE-CAD, and VWF. (B) Quantitative real time PCR showing gene expression fold changes for the eEPC genes. (C) Quantitative real time PCR showing gene expression fold changes for the OEC genes. Error bars in B and C show mean ± SEM of three biological replicates for each EPC subtype.
