Simpler and more convenient beads, visualized by confocal microscopy. For con- methods are thus desirable. In this study, we tested the ﬂuent cultures, the average number of beads per cell hypothesis that endothelial cells (EC) can be loaded was 4.4 and 4.2, with and without the presence of the with micron-size magnetic beads by the phagocytosis- anti-VEGFR2 antibody, respectively. However, while like mechanism ‘angiophagy’. To this end, human the actively dividing cells took up 2.9 unconjugated umbilical vein EC (HUVEC) were incubated with beads on average, this number increased to 5.2 if magnetic beads conjugated or not (control) with an binding
