Unformatted text preview: RESULTS: When cultured alone, in the absence of neurons or Schwann cells, only ~5% of the ECs expressed ephrinB2. d. EphrinB2-negative ECs were co-cultured with Schwann cells for two days. The effect of this co-culture on EC proliferation was compared to ECs cultured alone. RESULTS: Co-culture with Schwann cells or with neurons did not result in increased proliferation of ECs when compared to ECs cultured alone. e. EphrinB2-negative ECs were co-cultured with Schwann cells for two days in the presence of soluble VEGF-R2 receptor proteins. RESULTS: ECs failed to express ephrinB2 under these conditions....
