HUVEC were cultured in EBM-2 containing different concentrations of DHZ or DHZ dimer. After an overnight incubation, cells were stimulated with 10 ng/mL of human recombinant TNF-[alpha] (Tebu-bio, Le Perray en Yvelines, France) or treated with 300 [micro]M [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] (SIGMA, St.
We use two-dimensional FDTD [30] method to simulate the structure with a lattice of [L.sub.x] x [L.sub.y] = 1800 nm x 300 nm for single-tube, dimer, and array, and infinity along the z direction, and the spatial mesh and time steps are set as [[DELTA].sub.x] = [[DELTA].sub.y] = 1 nm and [DELTA]t = [DELTA]x/lc, where c is the velocity of light in vacuum.
