A monolayer of human primary mesothelial cells was cultured with an experimental wound model insert provided by Ibidi GmbH (Munich, Germany). Removal of the insert yielded a uniform “wound” to the monolayer. (A) Treatment with TIMP-1-GPI but not the control proteins, showed a dose dependent increase in wound closure. (B) The closing areas were calculated using imaging software NIS-Elements. (Video S1, S2, S3, S4, S5).
