Fig. 5. hUC-MSCs rescued the expression of p-VEGFR2 and p-AKT in emphysema induced by SU5416. The protein expressions of p-VEGFR2, VEGFR2, p-AKT and AKT in the lungs were determined by western blotting. Compared with the control group (CON), p-VEGFR2 and p-AKT in the model group (SU) were significantly reduced, but both of them in the hUC-MSCs transplantation group (SUļ¼‹MSC) returned to the level of the Control group. There was no significant change in the expression of VEGFR2 and AKT in each group.
