Diagram of the kinetics of wound closure (A). VEGF165 and QK accelerate the closure of full thickness punch biopsy wounds. Three to five rats were analyzed at each time point. Gross appearance after 5 days of the wound treated with VEGF15, VEGF165, QK (10-6M); * = p < 0.05 vs VEGF15. Representative digital photographs (B) 5 days after wound. Error bars show SEM.
