DFO treatment enhanced gene expression of Flk and vWF (a). eELCs showed higher wound closure ability (%) than MSCs in normoxia (DFO = 0), and hypoxia (DFO) further increased the closure performance in a dose-dependent manner (b). CXCR4 gene expression was increased after treating eELCs with DFO for 24 hr (c). Scale bar: 200 μm. *Significant from the same cell under regular culture condition (without DFO), p < 0.05; #significant from MSCs under the same treatment, p < 0.05. DFO desferrioxamine, MSC mesenchymal stem cells, eELC early endothelial lineage cells, vWF von Willebrand factor, SDF-1 stromal cell-derived factor-1, CXCR4 C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4
