Figure 4: Ex Vivo Characterization of Intact ECM Scaffolds

(A) Protein concentrations measured by multiplex assay of the conditioned media following 12-h elution from the intact ECM scaffold (n = 8). (B) Western blot demonstrating the presence of FGF-2 in intact ECM scaffolds and absence of bioavailable FGF-2 in both inactivated ECM scaffolds. EGF = epidermal growth factor; HGF = hepatocyte growth factor; VEGF = vascular endothelial growth factor; other abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 3.
