ad Effect of IL-6 and sIL-6R on the proliferation of PECs and TECs. IL-6 or sIL-6R alone had no effect on the proliferation on PECs and TECs. The co-culture of both IL-6 and sIL-6R could induce PEC and TEC proliferation. PECs showed much higher proliferation in response to the co-cultured environment for 48 and 72 h as compared with TECs. Representative images of PECs (a) and TECs (b) in different culture conditions after 48 h. Absorbance of PECs (c) and TECs (d) at 24, 48, and 72 h in different culture conditionss
