Epithelial to mesenchymal transition enhances the cardioprotective capacity of human amniotic epithelial cells

요약 :  The amniotic epithelium consists of cells exhibiting mature epithelial cell characteristics, but also varying degrees of stemness. We tested the hypothesis that induction of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in amniotic epithelial cells (AECs) derived from human placenta enhances their capacity to support the ischemic myocardium. In response to incubation with transforming growth factor-b1 (TGF-b1)
