Number and function of EPCs in ApoE−/− mice exposed to SWCNTs or DWCNTs. a Representative flow cytometry plots of side scatter (SSC) and forward scatter (FSC) or FITC-Scan-1+/APC-Flk-1+ cells isolated from peripheral blood or bone marrow, b Relative number of Flk-1+/Sca-1+ cells in peripheral blood or bone marrow, c number of colony-forming units, and d number of migratory cells after exposure to 40 μg of SWCNTs or DWCNTs. Data are mean ± SD. (n = 3,*p < 0.05 vs. control of ApoE−/− mice; CTL) SWCNT: single-walled carbon nanotube, DWCNT: double-walled carbon nanotube
