Unformatted text preview: results of these two experiments? Results from experiment #1 show that neurons can induce the differentiation of approximately half of the population of ECs; the other half of the EC population fails to respond to the presence of neurons. Results from experiment #2 strongly suggest that the induction of ECs is mediated by soluble VEGF protein released from neurons. Therefore, ECs are induced to differentiate into arterial cells by VEGF protein produced by neurons....
