CDC tracking by bioluminescence. a Ex-vivo image of a rat heart after echocardiography-guided intramyocardial injection of transduced CDC. Signal is located on the border zone of the infarct. Quantification of luminescent signal in rats injected with hCDC (b) or rCDC (c). d, e In-vivo cell tracking shows luminescent signal on the precordial region of infarcted rat. Luminescence was detected until 5–7 days after injection. Color scales are shown in units of radiance, and quantification data are plotted on a log scale (Color figure online). hCDC human cardiosphere-derived cell, rCDC rat cardiosphere-derived cell
