Ultrastructure analysis identifies typical endothelial features in OECs. Representative images of eEPCs (A) and OECs (B) by transmission electron microscopy. White arrows indicate lysosome-like structures. Ultrastructural features recognized as adherens junctions indicated by black arrowheads (C), and abundant caveolae (D) in the plasma membrane were only present in OECs. Caveolae display two distinct morphologies, single pits (D) and clusters (E).
