Introduction: Increasing evidences suggest that vascular resident endothelial progenitor cells (VR-EPCs) are present in vessel walls, playing an important role in postnatal neovascularization. However, their structural and functional characteristics still remain unclear. In this work we isolated and[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
