OECs/ASCs co-culture in fibrin subcutaneously implanted in a nude mouse model. ASCs (100,000) were mixed with OECs (100,000) in fibrin (2.5 mg/ml) and pre-vascularized for 1 week in vitro before subcutaneous implantation in a nude mouse. One week later, the clots were excised and processed for immunohistochemistry with anti-human vimentin (left panel). Tail-vein-injected FITC-labeled wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) was found in the lumen of these vessels, indicating perfusion and thus functionality (right panel). Scale bar = 50 μm
