Complex network formation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), embedded in a degradable (poly)ethyleneglycol-heparin hydrogel. HUVECs are distinguished via CD31 expression (green), F-actin is labelled with phalloidin (red), and nuclei are stained with DRAQ5™ (blue). Image was acquired with a 10x objective on an Andor Dragonfly confocal microscope.
