Fig. 3. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) attenuates apoptotic cell death of the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and restores phagocytic activity of CD163+ cells when co-cultured with atopic dermatitis (AD) PBMCs.
(A) Quantitative analyses for FasL mRNA of the PBMCs. Naïve and AD refers to the monoculture of the PBMCs from the naïve and AD rats, respectively. AD + ASC represents the co-culture of AD PBMCs and ASCs. Upregulation of FasL mRNA expression in the AD PBMCs is partially reversed by co-culture with ASCs. **p < 0.002, ***p < 0.001, one-way ANOVA. (B) Fractions of Annexin V+/7-AAD+ cells to the total PBMCs. #p < 0.05, t-test. (C) Populations of the CD163+ cells bearing fluorescent zymosan A bioparticles inside the cells. #p < 0.05, t-test.
