The cell shape index was determined for AEC and AMC cultures by evaluating one frame from each N (total of three images) per treatment for cell circularity using ImageJ software. The shape index was calculated using the following formula: SI = 4π × area/perimeter2, which is an established method that was originally reported to determine vascular cell shape (64). A circle would have a shape index of 1; a straight line, an index of 0.
