Fig. 6

Intravenous injection of allogeneic UC-MSCs increase the protein expression of connexin 43 (Cx43) in the remote area of the LV myocardium at week 8 after AMI. Protein expression of troponin I and Cx43 were measured by Western blot in the infarct area (ac), border area (df), and remote area (gi). Data are presented as the mean ± SD. Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) group, n = 3; low-dose group, n = 4; and high-dose group, n = 4. *P < 0.05
