  1. EC = endothelial cell; rec = receptors
  2. Extrapolated from receptor density on normal ECs, accounting for different cell surface areas
  3. No NRP2 quantification available; assumed to be the same as NRP1 on tumor cells
  4. Conversions of receptor densities to tissue concentrations:
  5. Abluminal EC receptors (normal): 1.79 × 10-5 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/EC);
  6. Luminal EC receptors (normal): 2.20 × 10-4 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/EC);
  7. Abluminal EC receptors (diseased): 1.74 × 10-5 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/EC);
  8. Luminal EC receptors (diseased): 1.17 × 10-7 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/EC);
  9. Myocyte receptors: 5.96 × 10-5 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/myocyte);
  10. Tumor receptors: 2.55 × 10-4 (pmol/cm3 tissue)/(rec/tumor cell);
  11. Myocyte receptor densities are expressed per myonuclear domain
