The protein encoded by this gene has been identified as a brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor (BAI1)-binding protein. This interaction at the cytoplasmic membrane is crucial to the function of this protein, which may be involved in neuronal growth-cone guidance. This protein functions as an insulin receptor tyrosine kinase substrate and suggests a role for insulin in the central nervous system. This protein has also been identified as interacting with the dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy gene, which is associated with an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease. It also associates with a downstream effector of Rho small G proteins, which is associated with the formation of stress fibers and cytokinesis. Alternative splicing of the 3-end of this gene results in three products of undetermined function.[2] ...

BAP3 was initially identified through interaction in a yeast two-hybrid system with the brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor 1, a p53-target gene that encodes a seven-span transmembrane protein member of the secretin receptor family. BAP3 is predominantly expressed in the brain and possess high homology with Munc13 and synaptotagmin, suggesting that BAP3 may play a role in regulating neurotransmitter release. Recent experiments have shown that BAP3 is induced in certain tumors such as desmoplastic small round cell tumor. Ectopic expression of BAP3 in tumor cells dramatically enhances growth in low serum conditions and colony formation in soft agar, suggesting that the regulated exocytotic pathway may play a role in cancer cell proliferation. BAP3 is known to have two isoforms; this BAP3 antibody will recognize only isoform 2. Lower molecular weight bands may represent cleavage or degradation products. ...
This is the first report that Del-1 is expressed in adult animals in response to ischemia and that it plays an important role in adult angiogenesis. The protein encoded by Del-1 plays a critical role in embryonic vascular development. However, at the time of birth, the gene becomes quiescent, and Del-1 is no longer expressed in normal adult tissues.. In the embryo, Del-1 is expressed by endothelial progenitor cells and is secreted into the extracellular matrix.1 Del-1 supports adherence and migration of endothelial cells, mediated largely through the αvβ3 integrin receptor. Accumulating evidence indicates that angiogenesis requires signaling through both growth factor and integrin signaling pathways. Endothelial cells deprived of either influence will undergo programmed cell death.12 Indeed, in the chick CAM assay, antibodies directed against αvβ3 suppress Del-1-induced angiogenesis.13 A mutant form of Del-1, when the RGD motif has been altered (RGD→RAD), also disrupts angiogenesis in this ...

Membrane-associated guanylate kinase, WW and PDZ domain-containing protein 1 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MAGI1 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase homologue (MAGUK) family. MAGUK proteins participate in the assembly of multiprotein complexes on the inner surface of the plasma membrane at regions of cell-cell contact. The product of this gene may play a role as scaffolding protein at cell-cell junctions. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. MAGI1 has been shown to interact with: ACCN3, ATN1, Actinin alpha 4, Beta-catenin, Brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor 1, Calcium-activated potassium channel subunit alpha-1, FCHSD2, LRP2, and SYNPO.

In addition to being a proangiogenic factor in endothelial cells, Aggf1 has yet to be fully explored in the context of human pathophysiology. We present evidence here that Aggf1 plays a role in maintaining the contractile phenotype of SMCs, in part, by stabilizing the SRF-myocardin complex. It is not clear exactly how Aggf1 modulates the SRF-myocardin interaction although there exist several probable scenarios. Aggf1 is a novel binding partner for myocardin (Figure 3A). Many previously characterized myocardin-associated factors either stabilize or disrupt the SRF-myocardin complex.8 It is likely that Aggf1 may function as a scaffold to bring SRF and myocardin together. Alternatively, the ability of myocardin to associate with SRF is known to be modulated by post-translational modifications.8,17 It has recently been shown that Aggf1 is able to modulate the activities of several kinases including extracellular signal-regulated kinase18 and Akt12 although Aggf1 overexpression did not seem to alter ...

Each growth factor has unique roles during angiogenesis; vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays a key role during the initial step of angiogenesis, whereas PDGF functions in the maturation of blood vessels. We used a combination of three angiogenic growth factors to increase angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. We chose VEGF as a basic factor and added platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) to induce angiogenesis in three in vitro and in vivo models: 3D ...

Therapeutic angiogenesis remains a worthy but somewhat elusive clinical goal. Attempts to increase blood flow to ischemic tissue have included a variety of physical and biological approaches. A growing understanding of the cells and proteins involved in vessel sprouting and maturation led to a number of genetic approaches aimed at promoting angiogenesis in ischemic myocardium and skeletal muscle. In spite of several strategies undergoing testing in clinical trials, the delivery of vectors encoding for single growth factors has not yet shown clinical efficacy. In response to these challenges, a number of groups have aimed to provide multiple angiogenic factors for ischemic tissue. These approaches include gene transfer of transcription factors that regulate multiple angiogenic peptides (such as hypoxia inducible factor-1 ) or transplantation of cells capable of providing a regulated source of secreted growth factors and cytokines. A potential advantage of delivered cells is that they may also directly
4942 Elevated tumor cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) activity plays a multifaceted role in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). To elucidate the role of COX-2 in the in vitro and in vivo expression of two known NSCLC angiogenic peptides, CXCL8 and CXCL5, we studied two COX-2 gene modified NSCLC cell lines, A549 and H157. COX-2 overexpression enhanced the in vitro expression of both CXCL8 and CXCL5. In contrast, specific COX-2 inhibition decreased the in vitro production of both peptides. Consistent with the COX-2 in vitro effects, the enhanced tumor growth of COX-2 expressing tumors in a SCID-mouse model of NSCLC was accompanied by elevated levels of CXCL5 and CXCL8. Furthermore, neutralizing anti-CXCL5 and anti-CXCL8 antisera inhibited the tumor growth of COX-2 overexpressing tumors in SCID-mice. In addition, the COX-2 related angiogenic capacity of H157 was efficiently reduced by anti-CXCR2 treatment in a rat corneal pocket model of angiogenesis. In summary, we conclude that COX-2 contributes to the ...

Preeclampsia is the onset of high blood pressure and proteinuria that acutely develops after about 20 weeks of pregnancy, which impairs fetal growth and can result in maternal organ damage. There are few treatment options available. Oxidative stress mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been proposed to inhibit blood vessel formation (a process called angiogenesis) in the placenta, which would be expected to increase the risk of preeclampsia; however, clinical trials have found antioxidants to be ineffective in preventing preeclampsia. Nezu et al. used a mouse model of preeclampsia in which the antioxidant system Nrf2 had been genetically or pharmacologically manipulated. Unexpectedly, genetic ablation of an inhibitor of Nrf2 or treatment with an activator of Nrf2 decreased placental angiogenesis, suppressed fetal growth, and worsened maternal survival. In contrast, deficiency of Nrf2 increased placental angiogenesis and improved fetal and maternal outcomes. These results indicate that ...
We have previously shown that intracoronary delivery of recombinant adenoviruses encoding angiogenic proteins that contain signal peptides (fibroblast growth factor-4 and fibroblast growth factor-5) ameliorate myocardial ischemia. In the present paper, we test the hypothesis that the presence of the signal peptide is an important element in the favorable effects that transgene expression has on regional flow and function in an animal model of myocardial ischemia. We performed intracoronary delivery of two different recombinant adenoviruses encoding a fibroblast growth factor-2 variant, one with a signal peptide, FGF-2LI(+sp), and one without a signal peptide, FGF-2LI(-sp). In a model of stress-induced myocardial ischemia, intracoronary injection of these recombinants resulted in mRNA and protein expression of the transferred gene. Two weeks after gene transfer, regional abnormalities in stress-induced function and blood flow were improved after delivery of FGF-2LI containing the signal peptide. ...

Neuroinflammation and blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption are two critical mechanisms of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH)-induced brain injury, which are closely related to patient prognosis. Recently, angiogenic factor with G-patch and FHA domain 1 (Aggf1) was shown to inhibit inflammatory effect and preserve vascular integrity in non-nervous system diseases. This study aimed to determine whether Aggf1 could attenuate neuroinflammation and preserve BBB integrity after experimental SAH, as well as the underlying mechanisms of its protective roles. Two hundred forty-nine male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to the endovascular perforation model of SAH. Recombinant human Aggf1 (rh-Aggf1) was administered intravenously via tail vein injection at 1 h after SAH induction. To investigate the underlying neuroprotection mechanism, Aggf1 small interfering RNA (Aggf1 siRNA) and PI3K-specific inhibitor LY294002 were administered through intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) before SAH induction.

PDT is being successfully used in clinics for the treatment of superficial lesions of both malignant and non-malignant diseases. However, treating solid tumors is still a challenge due to issues related to penetration of light, non-homogeneity and geometry of the tumors [21]. Triggering of angiogenesis is also dependent on different PDT parameters such as drug/light dosage and drug light interval. Previous studies have shown that sub-optimal PDT elicits increased angiogenesis [22, 23]. In our earlier study we have reported that high dose light PDT with high fluence rate induces the overexpression of VEGF compared to low dose light PDT [24]. We have also noticed that predominantly cellular targeting long drug light interval PDT can induce greater expression of angiogenic proteins compared to vascular targeting short drug light interval PDT [25]. Therefore, there is a need for continued investigation to enhance the anti-tumor efficacy of PDT for improved response and expanded use. In this study, ...
Introduction: We have previously shown that treatment with epidermacan a novel stem cell derived paracrine factor promoted angiogenesis in vitro accompanied with an increase in angiogenic miRNA expression. Here, we identified novel microRNAs regulated by epidermacan and validated their importance in modulating the epidermacan angiogenic effects in vitro and in vivo.. Methods and Results: Increased levels of pro-angiogenic miRNAs such as miR-10b, miR-21 and miR-424 were discovered in MicroRNA profiling of HUVEC cells treated with epidermacan and then confirmed by qRT-PCR. We also identified miR-874, a relatively unknown miRNA but for its role as a tumor suppressor. Investigation of the downstream microRNA/gene networks revealed that epidermacan regulated known angiogenic genes such as VEGFC, TBX1, HIF-1a and NRP1. Importantly, treatment with epidermacan decreased the levels of HoxD10, a known target of miR-10b in thrombin induced angiogenesis. Inhibition of miR-10b or miR-874 via anti-miR ...

Timely regulated changes in oxygen partial pressure are important for placental formation. Disturbances could be responsible for pregnancy-related diseases like preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction. We aimed to (i) determine the effect of oxygen partial pressure on cytotrophoblast differentiation; (ii) measure mRNA expression and protein secretion from genes associated with placental angiogenesis; and (iii) determine the reversibility of these effects at different oxygen partial pressures. Term cytotrophoblasts were incubated at 21% and 2.5% O2 for 96 hr, or were switched between the two oxygen concentrations after 48 hr. Real-time PCR and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) were used to evaluate cell fusion and differentiation, measuring transcript levels for those genes involved in cell fusion and placental angiogenesis, including VEGF, PlGF, VEGFR1, sVEGFR1, sENG, INHA, and GCM1. Cytotrophoblasts underwent fusion and differentiation in 2.5% O2 . PlGF expression was ...

Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from existing vasculature. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), a known angiogenic protein, stimulates endothelial cell proliferation and migration via interactions with its receptors, KDR and Flt-1. A secreted form of Flt-1 (sFlt-1), derived from alternatively-spliced RNA, can inhibit actions of VEGF in vivo. It has been suggested that alterations in sFlt-1 expression could significantly change the angiogenic VEGF activity. This project focuses on characterizing intronic elements that regulate Flt-1 mRNA splicing. A "wild-type" construct (pFIN13), containing the first 13 exons, intron 13 and exons 14-30 of mouse Flt-1, was shown to produce both forms of Flt-1 mRNA after transfection into HEK293 cells. To gauge the strength of the native splicing signals in intron 13 of Flt-1, a series of point mutations were made in the polypyrimidine tract using pFIN13. After transient transfection, the levels of Flt-1 and sFlt-1 protein and mRNA were ...
Endometriosis is a chronic, inflammatory disease characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue in aberrant locations outside the uterus. Neoangiogenesis or establishment of new blood supply is one of the fundamental requirements of endometriotic lesion survival in the peritoneal cavity. IL-17A is emerging as a potent angiogenic and proinflammatory cytokine involved in the pathophysiology of several chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. However, sparse information is available in the context of endometriosis. In this study, we demonstrate the potential importance of IL-17A in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of endometriosis. The data show a differential expression of IL-17A in human ectopic endometriotic lesions and matched eutopic endometrium from women with endometriosis. Importantly, surgical removal of lesions resulted in significantly reduced plasma IL-17A concentrations. Immunohistochemistry revealed localization of IL-17A primarily in the stroma ...

Angiogenesis is a multicellular morphogenesis process that expands vascular networks in tissue. Various biological components concertedly contribute to angiogenic morphogenesis. The most important cellular component is endothelial cells, which we use to reconstruct 3D angiogenic process in a extracellular matrix in response to angiogenic growth factors. In addition, perivascular pericytes, blood flow and extravascular tissue importantly serve as (sub)components that allow constructing more sophisticated vascular networks. However, a mechanistic understanding of how the individual components contribute to various angiogenic processes is largely missing. In this seminar, I will introduce a reconstitution angiogenesis assay system with a microfluidic device that allows dissecting the phenomenon in a bottom-up way by adding individual components to the essential one. I will discuss the roles of pericyte and intraluminal pressure on angiogenic morphogenesis based on recent unpublished data obtained ...

INTRODUCTION Stimulation of coronary collateral vessel growth by therapeutic angiogenesis (TA) offers an alternative treatment option for patients with refractory angina. Several TA modalities, including delivery to the heart of angiogenic growth factors (proteins or genes) and cells have been tested in clinical trials in the past two decades, but so far none of them resulted in significant therapeutic efficacy in large scale studies. This review attempts to identify the main obstacles hindering clinical success and recommends measures to overcome them in the future. AREAS COVERED After stating the medical need and rational for TA, and listing and briefly discussing past and current TA clinical trials, three main areas of obstacles are described: conceptual questions, technical limitations and clinical design uncertainties. Based on scientific and technical advances and lessons learned in past clinical trials, potential solutions to overcome some of these obstacles are proposed. EXPERT OPINION
Uncontrolled neovascularization occurs in several angiogenesis-dependent diseases, including cancer. Neovascularization is tightly controlled by the balance between angiogenic growth factors and antiangiogenic agents. The various natural angiogenesis inhibitors identified so far affect neovascularization by different mechanisms of action. Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a matricellular modular glycoprotein that acts as a powerful endogenous inhibitor of angiogenesis. It acts both indirectly, by sequestering angiogenic growth factors and effectors in the extracellular environment, and directly, by inducing an antiangiogenic program in endothelial cells following engagement of specific receptors including CD36, CD47, integrins and proteoglycans (all involved in angiogenesis ). In view of its central, multifaceted role in angiogenesis, TSP-1 has served as a source of antiangiogenic tools, including TSP-1 fragments, synthetic peptides and peptidomimetics, gene therapy strategies, and agents that up-regulate TSP
The present study reveals two mechanisms by which UFH and LMWH affect angiogenesis in vitro. UFH and LMWH inhibit the proliferation of hMVECs induced by the angiogenic factors bFGF and VEGF165 to a similar degree, and differently affect fibrin matrix formation. LMWH causes the formation of more rigid fibrin matrices that inhibit capillary-like tubular structure formation, whereas UFH contributes to the formation of a more porous fibrin matrix and thus facilitates angiogenesis.. Angiogenesis is required for the expansion of many solid tumors and facilitates the metastasis of tumor cells to other organs (10) . Factors altering angiogenesis may, therefore, influence these processes and thereby the prognosis of cancer patients. Various studies have suggested that heparins affect the proliferation of endothelial cells by their effects on angiogenic growth factors, in particular FGFs and VEGFs (35 , 36) . Both endothelial heparan sulfates and heparins can promote the interaction of these growth ...
Rezulin (Troglitazone or Tro or T), a glitazone PPAR-gamma agonist, was approved for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, but was withdrawn from the market due to idiosyncratic liver toxicity. Two similar drugs, Avandia (Rosiglitazone or Rosi or R) and Actos (Pioglitazone or Pio or P), are considered to be safe treatments for the same condition. The expression profile of key drug metabolism genes should be different in cells treated with Rezulin versus those treated with Avandia and Actos.. Hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2 cells were treated at 80% cell confluence with these three drugs (100 µM, Cayman Chemical) or a DMSO vehicle control for 24 h.

Síndrome de Parkes Weber (SPW) é uma rara malformação vascular congênita, semelhante à Síndrome de Klippel-Trenaunay, mas tendo suas próprias características distintas. Ela foi descrita pela primeira vez em 1907 pelo dermatologista britânico Frederick Parkes Weber. Ela só é encontrada em cerca de 0,3% da população mundial. A SPW é caracterizada por malformações venosas e anomalias capilares cutâneas semelhantes às da Síndrome de Klippel-Trenaunay juntamente com uma malformação arteriovenosa. Malformações linfáticas são raras. Também pode incluir hipertrofia esquelética e/ou dos tecidos moles. A síndrome pode afetar vários membros, o tronco e a cabeça. O tronco e as extremidades inferiores são mais comumente afetados. A característica mais comum da SPW são malformações capilares, também conhecidas como manchas em vinho do Porto. Seu aspecto é de uma mácula avermelhada, que escurece ao longo dos anos. Malformações capilares são lesões de baixo fluxo ...
The present study demonstrated the validity and superiority of CD105 as a marker of angiogenesis in NSCLC; the CD105-IMVD was more closely correlated with the expression of VEGF than the CD34-IMVD. Kumar et al. (11 , 13 , 15, 16, 17, 18) and others have demonstrated that anti-CD105 antibodies preferentially react with activated ECs in tissues participating in angiogenesis, such as tumor tissues, and that antibodies against pan-ECs, such as anti-CD34 antibodies, react with normal vessels, as well as activated vessels. According to the hypothesis, we tried to define the CD34-IMVD-CD105-IMVD as the baseline IMVD. As a result, the baseline IMVD proved not at all to be correlated with VEGF expression, suggesting the baseline IMVD was not a measurement of angiogenesis but a measurement of vessels just trapped within tumor tissues. Of course, it should be noted that angiogenesis is not influenced only by VEGF but also other angiogenic factors and antiangiogenic factors, such as angiostatin. Comparative ...

UOC di Otorinolaringoiatria, Azienda Ospedaliera di Rilievo Nazionale e di Alta Specializzazione di Caserta. ABSTRACT. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital disorder characterized by capillary malformations (port-wine stains or flat haemangiomas), soft tissue and bone hypertrophy, large varicose veins. Intracranial vascular malformations are very rare. The Authors report a case of a 4 year old girl with KTS, suffering from anacusis in the left ear and severe sensorineural hearing loss in the right ear, who underwent cochlear implantation; in our case angiomatous formations were located inside the temporal bone, one of these adherent to the vertical portion of the facial nerve.. INTRODUCTION. In 1900 Maurice Klippel and Paul Trenaunay were the first to describe a rare angio-osteoipertrofica syndrome characterized by symptom triad: capillary malformations (port-wine stains or flat hemangiomas), soft tissue and bone hypertrophy, large varicose veins (1, 2). It typically affects one ...
Soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1 or sVEGFR-1) is a tyrosine kinase protein that disables proteins that cause blood vessel growth. Soluble Flt-1 (sFlt-1) is a splice variant of VEGF receptor 1 (Flt-1) which is produced by a variety of tissues.These proteins act as a receptor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a potent angiogenic growth factor. (Another VEGF receptor is KDR). sFlt-1 (soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 - also known as soluble VEGF receptor-1) binds and reduces free circulating levels of the proangiogenic factors VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) and PlGF (placental growth factor). sFlt-1 thereby blunts the beneficial effects of these proangiogenic factors on maternal endothelium, with consequent maternal hypertension and proteinuria. Serum levels of PlGF and sFlt-1 are altered in women with preeclampsia. Moreover, circulating levels of PlGF and sFlt-1 can discriminate between a normal pregnancy and that with preeclampsia even prior to clinical ...
Purpose : Placental growth factor (PlGF) and vascular endothelial growth factor B (VEGF-B) are members of the vascular endothelial growth factor family, binding to VEGF-R1. PIGF inhibition suppresses pathological angiogenesis in inflammatory disorders and diabetic retinas. PIGF levels are overexpressed in the vitreous of diabetic retinopathy (DR) patients and levels may increase with the severity of the disease. VEGF-B is a vascular survival factor, safeguarding the balance between blood vessel growth and degeneration. Under degenerative conditions VEGF-B is a survival factor to protect cells from apoptosis; during certain pathologies can act as antiangiogenic factor to prevent overgrowth of blood vessels. Angiogenic VEGF-B activity during ocular neovascularization may be due to its survival effect, rescuing neovessels from apoptosis. Vitreous VEGF-B levels are significantly increased in DR patients. The purpose of this study was to correlate vitreous angiogenic cytokines (VEGF-B and PIGF) ...
Alternative titles; symbols KTW SYNDROME KLIPPEL-TRENAUNAY SYNDROME; KTS ANGIOOSTEOHYPERTROPHY SYNDROMEGene map locus 5q13.3 TEXT A number sign (#) is used with this entry because at least some cases of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome are caused by mutation in or gain-of-function translocation involving the VG5Q gene (608464). The features of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome are large cutaneous hemangiomata with hypertrophy of the related bones and soft tissues. The disorder resembles, clinically and in its lack of definite genetic basis, Sturge-Weber syndrome (185300), and indeed the 2 have been associated in some cases (Harper, 1971). Suggestions of a genetic cause are meager (Waardenburg, 1963). See 116860. Lindenauer (1965) described brother and sister. He suggested that when arteriovenous fistula is also present, the disorder is distinct from the KTW syndrome and might be called Parkes Weber syndrome, since Weber (1907) described cases of this type as well as cases seemingly identical to those ...
First we focused on the function of the TMD23 portion of rTM used for treatment. Previously, domain 23 has been considered an angiogenic factor,30 promoting mouse cutaneous wound healing through modulating angiogenesis at the wound site.38,39 Thus, to determine whether the anti-inflammatory effects we observed were because of a possible angiogenic effect of rTM containing domains 23, classic angiogenic molecule VEGF, and its R1 and R2 receptor proteins, were measured in the infected cornea in rTM-treated and control mice. The VEGF protein did not differ at either 3 or 5 days p.i., while the level of R1 was slightly elevated at 3 and reduced at 5 days; R2 levels were unchanged at 3 and reduced at 5 days p.i. after rTM treatment. Because numerous molecules are angiogenic and it would be impossible to test all of them, India ink35,36 was used to globally assess the angiogenic potential of the 23 domain contained in rTM. Visual, followed by statistical analysis of these data showed no difference ...
Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature, plays a decisive role for the rapid growth of avian follicles. Compared to mammals, few data on the angiogenesis in the avian ovary are available. However, whereas several pro-angiogenic factors in the avian ovary have been recently studied in detail, little information is available on the localization of anti-angiogenic factors. The aim of this study was to determine the localization and possible function of the anti-angiogenic factor thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) and its receptor CD36 in the ovary of the ostrich using immunohistochemistry and to correlate the results with ultrastructural data ...
Compensatory angiogenic signaling pathways. Although VEGF is likely the predominant angiogenic factor in human tumors, it is clear from preclinical and clinical studies with VEGF-targeted agents that tumors can grow despite inhibition of the VEGF pathway. These observations led to the hypothesis that compensatory mechanisms for tumor angiogenesis may account for inherent or acquired resistance to VEGF-targeted therapy. The fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family of ligands was the first resistance mechanism identified. In an elegant study done in the Hanahan laboratory, the investigators showed that treatment with an anti-VEGF R-2 mAb was associated with a decrease in vascular density after 10 days of treatment with an anti-VEGFR2 antibody (20). However, these investigators noted an angiogenic rebound in tumors at 4 weeks that was associated with an increase in expression of redundant angiogenic factors, including members of the FGF family. By using a FGF-trap, these investigators were able to ...
CRC is the third most common cancer worldwide, and in the European Union alone, the lifetime estimated risk of developing the disease is 6%. Over the last 30 years, advances in diagnostic tools and a consensus towards internationally standardised staging criteria of the condition, together with combined multimodal treatment strategies, have contributed to substantial improvement in 5 year survival rates for patients with CRC, from 22% to 50% [42]. Crucially, recent advances in understanding molecular mechanisms driving tumours have increased our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the benefits of new treatment agents which selectively target abnormal pathways confined to tumours, allowing improvements in the prognosis of patients with advanced CRC and development of new therapeutic modalities.. Deciphering the complex biological mechanisms underlying tumour angiogenesis has been a major focus of research, as the growth of solid tumours is restricted to 2-3 mm3 in size without ...
In this study, we showed for the first time that RAGE is involved in impaired angiogenic response in diabetes. Moreover, our results implicate esRAGE as a therapeutic factor to protect impaired angiogenic response in diabetes. In addition to the vasodegenerative changes (2-4), several observations indicated that angiogenic response or development of new vessels in response to local ischemia/inflammation is significantly reduced in diabetic patients and animals (5-8). However, only few reports showed the involvement of AGEs/RAGE system in diabetic-related impaired angiogenesis. Goova et al. (19) demonstrated that blockade of RAGE restores effective wound healing in diabetic mice. Tamarat et al. (18) demonstrated that blockade of AGE formation restored ischemia-induced angiogenesis in diabetic mice. Both of these reports implicate the functional role of AGEs in impaired angiogenic response but do not necessarily delineate the role of RAGE. Goova et al.s (19) observation is made by using sRAGE, a ...

The aim of this study was to determine if diffusible angiogenic growth factors were released in human dental pulp during orthodontic tooth movement. These factors, if diffusible, could induce angiogenesis in other tissues, and may then be isolated and identified. The pulps from 14 premolar teeth treated with straight wire fixed orthodontic appliances for 2 weeks were compared with those of 14 untreated control premolar teeth from the same subjects. Following tooth extraction and sectioning, 1-mm horizontal sections of pulp tissue were embedded in collagen with l-mm sections of rat aorta and co-cultured in growth media for up to 4 weeks. Sections of rat aorta alone were also cultured. Angiogenic changes in the form of microvessel growth were observed by light microscopy. Microvessel identification was confirmed by electron microscopy and by immunohistochemistry using staining for factor VIII-related antigen marker for endothelial cells.. When compared at days 5, 10 and 14 of co-culture, the ...
Multiple mechanisms have been implicated in the pathogenesis of DN, including modification and inactivation of proteins critical to neural function by nonenzymatic glycosylation,8 altered neural polyol metabolism,6,7 reductions in neurotrophin or the availability of neurotrophic factors, and microvascular disease including reduced vasa nervora in the diabetic nerve.20,35 However, debate still oscillates between propositions based on neurochemical versus vascular events. Our data demonstrate that not only neurotrophic factors but also various angiogenic cytokines were significantly reduced in the diabetic sciatic nerves. These data reveal that downregulation of both neurochemical and of vascular factors is related to the development of DN. After injection of SHh, expression of the Gli-1 transcription factor was upregulated and the expression of multiple endogenous angiogenic cytokines (angiopoietin-1, angiopoietin-2, and VEGF-1) and neurotrophic factors (BDNF and IGF-1) was restored to ...
The ability to form new skeletal muscle capillaries in ischemic tissue is a major challenge. The concept that new blood vessels can grow to enhance tissue perfusion is now achieving widespread acceptance.20 Therapeutic angiogenesis is proposed as a complement or an alternative to surgical revascularization. To date, several proangiogenic factors, including VEGF and fibroblast growth factor, have been tested and have demonstrated convincing efficiency in acute and chronic experimental models21; however, clinical trials to test VEGF or fibroblast growth factor angiogenic therapy in coronary and peripheral artery diseases were disappointing because their effects were inconsistent.21,22 One of the explanations for the lack of efficiency of angiogenic therapy probably comes from the use of individual factors, whereas angiogenesis is known to involve a plethora of angiogenic factors.. On the basis of their previous data, Matsakas et al19 propose in this issue of Circulation Research a new and very ...
