Circulating exosomal miR-144-3p inhibits the mobilization of endothelial progenitor cells post myocardial infarction via regulating the MMP9 pathway

Figure 3. Compared with scramble transfected MSCs, miR-144-3p mimic treated MSCs showed a higher expression of miR-144-3p (A); a lower mRNA expression of Mmp9, Ets1 and Plg (B); a lower protein expression of MMP9 and Ets1 (C). While miR-144-3p inhibitor treated MSCs showed a converse trend (CE).
