Fig. 2. The effects of BMSC exosomes and Nrf2 knockdown, alone or in combination, on EPC tube formation. (A) The detection of the surface markers CD31, CD34, and CD45 in isolated EPCs with flow cytometry. (B) EPCs were transfected with Lenti-sh-Nrf2 or Lenti-sh-NC for 48 hours. The Nrf2 protein levels were determined with western blot analysis. (C, D) EPCs stably expressing sh-Nrf2 or sh-NC were treated with BMSC exosomes (200 μg/ml) for 72 hours. (C) Tube formation was observed under a microscope. Scale bar=100 μm. (D) The relative tube length in each treatment group was determined. N=3, *p<0.05, **p< 0.01.
