ETV2 transduced fibroblasts expressed EPC phenotypes. The transduced cells from both groups (ETV2 + normoxia and ETV2 + hypoxia) exhibited some similar characteristics. They were positive for CD31, CXCR4, and NRP1. VEGFR2 expression was different in the two groups; in hypoxia conditions the transduced cells strongly expressed this marker compared with normoxia conditions. Generally, ETV2 transduced cells in both normoxia and hypoxia conditions exhibited phenotypes similar to HUVECs and different to fibroblasts. HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cell
