Bottom Line: Cardiac function was improved in MSCs, GENE and MSCs+GENE groups.Collagen volume fraction was significantly reduced and myocardial TGF-β1 mRNA expression significantly down-regulated in both GENE and MSCs+GENE groups, collagen type I/III ratio reduction was more significant in MSCs+GENE group than in MSCs or GENE group.Myocardial MSCs and hVEGF165 plasmid injection improves cardiac function possibly through down-regulating myocardial TGF-β1 expression and reducing the type I/III collagen ratio in this DCM rat model.

vWF staining. vWF expression tended to be higher in GENE (B) and MSCs (C) group and significantly higher in MSCs+GENE (D) group compared to PBS (A) group. *P < 0.05 versus PBS.

fig04: vWF staining. vWF expression tended to be higher in GENE (B) and MSCs (C) group and significantly higher in MSCs+GENE (D) group compared to PBS (A) group. *P < 0.05 versus PBS.

Mentions: Collagen volume fraction was significantly reduced in MSCs and GENE group and further reduced in MSCs plus GENE group compared to PBS group at the end of study (Fig.3A: Massion staining and Fig.3B: Sirius red staining). von Willebrand factor staining showed a tendency for increased vWF expression in MSCs and GENE group and which was significantly up-regulated in MSCs+GENE group compared to PBS group (Fig.4).
