Microvesicles from the plasma of elderly subjects and from senescent endothelial cells promote vascular calcification

Figure 1. Plasma MVs assessed by flow cytometry. (A) Representative dot plot showing log forward scatter (FSC) vs. log side scatter (SSC) localization of MVs in a young subject. The upper right gate shows the bead flow count, used as an index to count MVs in absolute terms. The lower left gate shows MVs smaller than 1 µm. (B) Representative dot plot showing localization of MVs in an elderly subject.
