Figure 6: Intact ECM Scaffold Supports Blood Vessel Assembly

Representative images of the human umbilical vein endothelial cell angiogenesis assays performed with no scaffold (A), intact ECM scaffold (B), and guanidine-inactivated ECM scaffolds (C). Total tubule length (D), total tubule branch length (E), number of nodes (F), and number of junctions (G) measured in human umbilical vein endothelial cell angiogenesis assays performed with serum-free media (n = 7), intact ECM scaffold (n = 7), and guanidine-inactivated ECM scaffold (n = 7; 1-way ANOVA). Abbreviations as in Figure 1.
