Anti-secretogranin III therapy of oxygen-induced retinopathy with optimal safety.

Angiogenesis 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) with pathological retinal neovascularization is the most common cause of blindness in children. ROP is currently treated with laser therapy or cryotherapy, both of which may adversely affect the peripheral vision with limited efficacy. Owing to the susceptibility of the developing retina and vasculatures to pharmacological intervention, there is currently no approved drug therapy for ROP in preterm infants. Read More

Angiogenic desmoplastic histopathological growth pattern as a prognostic marker of good outcome in patients with colorectal liver metastases.

Angiogenesis 2019 Jan 12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, P.O. Box 2040, 3000 CA, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: In patients with resectable colorectal liver metastases (CRLM), distinct histopathological growth patterns (HGPs) develop at the interface between the tumour and surrounding tissue. The desmoplastic (d) HGP is characterised by angiogenesis and a peripheral fibrotic rim, whereas non-angiogenic HGPs co-opt endogenous sinusoidal hepatic vasculature. Evidence from previous studies has suggested that patients with dHGP in their CRLM have improved prognosis as compared to patients with non-desmoplastic HGPs. Read More

Interleukin-8 release by endothelial colony-forming cells isolated from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients might contribute to their pathogenicity.

Angiogenesis 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Hematology Department, AP-HP, European Georges Pompidou Hospital, 20 rue Leblanc, 75015, Paris, France.

Introduction: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a devastating disease characterized by obliteration of alveolar architecture, resulting in declining lung function and ultimately death. Pathogenic mechanisms involve a concomitant accumulation of scar tissue together with myofibroblasts activation and a strong abnormal vascular remodeling. Endothelial progenitor cells (ECFC subtype) have been investigated in several human lung diseases as a potential actor in IPF. Read More

Kruppel-like factor 4 regulates developmental angiogenesis through disruption of the RBP-J-NICD-MAML complex in intron 3 of Dll4.

Angiogenesis 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Medicine, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, 11794, USA.

Angiogenesis is a multistep process that requires highly regulated endothelial cell (EC) behavior. The transcription factor Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) is a critical regulator of several basic EC functions; we have recently shown that KLF4 disturbs pathological (tumor) angiogenesis by mediating the expression of members of VEGF and Notch signaling pathways. Notch signaling is central to orchestration of sprouting angiogenesis but little is known about the upstream regulation of Notch itself. Read More

Interleukin-22 promotes tumor angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Moores Cancer Center, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, 92093, USA.

T17 cells play important yet complex roles in cancer development and progression. We previously reported that T17 cells and IL-17 mediate resistance to anti-VEGF therapy by inducing recruitment of immunosuppressive and proangiogenic myeloid cells to the tumor microenvironment. Here, we demonstrate that IL-22, a key effector cytokine expressed by T17 cells, directly acts on endothelial cells to promote tumor angiogenesis. Read More

TSPYL5-mediated inhibition of p53 promotes human endothelial cell function.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Stem Cell Research Laboratory, Immunotherapy Convergence Research Center, Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology, 125 Gwahak-ro, Yuseong-gu, Taejon, 34141, Republic of Korea.

Testis-specific protein, Y-encoded like (TSPYL) family proteins (TSPYL1-6), which are members of the nucleosome assembly protein superfamily, have been determined to be involved in the regulation of various cellular functions. However, the potential role of TSPYL family proteins in endothelial cells (ECs) has not been determined. Here, we demonstrated that the expression of TSPYL5 is highly enriched in human ECs such as human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and human pluripotent stem cell-differentiated ECs (hPSC-ECs).

The regulatory network of miR-141 in the inhibition of angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 21. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Institute of Environmental Medicine, and Cancer Center of the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, 866 Yuhangtang Road, Hangzhou, 310058, China.

The miR-200 family, consisting of miR-200a/b/c, miR-141, and miR-429, is well known to inhibit epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer invasion and metastasis. Among the miR-200 family members, miR-200a/b/c and miR-429 have been reported to inhibit angiogenesis. However, the role of miR-141 in angiogenesis remains elusive, as contradicting results have been found in different cancer types and tumor models. Read More

ADAM10 controls the differentiation of the coronary arterial endothelium.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Physiology, Biophysics and Systems Biology, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

The coronary vasculature is crucial for normal heart function, yet much remains to be learned about its development, especially the maturation of coronary arterial endothelium. Here, we show that endothelial inactivation of ADAM10, a key regulator of Notch signaling, leads to defects in coronary arterial differentiation, as evidenced by dysregulated genes related to Notch signaling and arterial identity. Moreover, transcriptome analysis indicated reduced EGFR signaling in A10ΔEC coronary endothelium. Read More

AutoTube: a novel software for the automated morphometric analysis of vascular networks in tissues.

Angiogenesis 2018 Oct 28. Epub 2018 Oct 28.

Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, ETH Zürich, Vladimir-Prelog-Weg 1-5/10, 8093, Zurich, Switzerland.

Due to their involvement in many physiologic and pathologic processes, there is a great interest in identifying new molecular pathways that mediate the formation and function of blood and lymphatic vessels. Vascular research increasingly involves the image-based analysis and quantification of vessel networks in tissue whole-mounts or of tube-like structures formed by cultured endothelial cells in vitro. While both types of experiments deliver important mechanistic insights into (lymph)angiogenic processes, the manual analysis and quantification of such experiments are typically labour-intensive and affected by inter-experimenter variability.

Platelets: the holy grail in cancer blood biomarker research?

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb;22(1):1-2

Department of Physiology, Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht, Maastricht University, P.O. Box 616, 6200 MD, Maastricht, The Netherlands.

We would like to promote the fact that platelets are increasingly emerging as a rich source of potential biomarkers for cancer. Blood platelets contain vast amounts of bioactive proteins, such as growth factors, chemokines, and cytokines. These proteins are either synthesized by the megakaryocytes that produce the platelets or are sequestered by the circulating platelets from the blood, in which case these proteins may originate from the tumor.

Staphylococcus aureus alpha toxin activates Notch in vascular cells.

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb 15;22(1):197-209. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Section of Pediatric Surgery, Department of Surgery, The University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Staphylococcus aureus infection is one of the leading causes of morbidity in hospitalized patients in the United States, an effect compounded by increasing antibiotic resistance. The secreted agent hemolysin alpha toxin (Hla) requires the receptor A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 10 (ADAM10) to mediate its toxic effects. We hypothesized that these effects are in part regulated by Notch signaling, for which ADAM10 activation is essential. Read More

Excess vascular endothelial growth factor-A disrupts pericyte recruitment during blood vessel formation.

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb 20;22(1):167-183. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Center for Heart and Regenerative Medicine, Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, 2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA, 24016, USA.

Pericyte investment into new blood vessels is essential for vascular development such that mis-regulation within this phase of vessel formation can contribute to numerous pathologies including arteriovenous and cerebrovascular malformations. It is critical therefore to illuminate how angiogenic signaling pathways intersect to regulate pericyte migration and investment. Here, we disrupted vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) signaling in ex vivo and in vitro models of sprouting angiogenesis, and found pericyte coverage to be compromised during VEGF-A perturbations.

Perfused 3D angiogenic sprouting in a high-throughput in vitro platform.

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb 31;22(1):157-165. Epub 2018 Aug 31.

Division of Analytical Biosciences, LACDR, Leiden University, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Angiogenic sprouting, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels, is orchestrated by cues from within the cellular microenvironment, such as biochemical gradients and perfusion. However, many of these cues are missing in current in vitro models of angiogenic sprouting. We here describe an in vitro platform that integrates both perfusion and the generation of stable biomolecular gradients and demonstrate its potential to study more physiologically relevant angiogenic sprouting and microvascular stabilization.

The calcium-binding type III repeats domain of thrombospondin-2 binds to fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2).

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb 30;22(1):133-144. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Tumor Angiogenesis Unit, Department of Oncology, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS, Via Stezzano, 87, Bergamo, 24126, Italy.

Thrombospondin (TSP)-1 and TSP-2 share similar structures and functions, including a remarkable antiangiogenic activity. We have previously demonstrated that a mechanism of the antiangiogenic activity of TSP-1 is the interaction of its type III repeats domain with fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF2), affecting the growth factor bioavailability and angiogenic activity. Since the type III repeats domain is conserved in TSP-2, this study aimed at investigating whether also TSP-2 retained the ability to interact with FGF2. Read More

Leptin is a physiological regulator of skeletal muscle angiogenesis and is locally produced by PDGFRα and PDGFRβ expressing perivascular cells.

Angiogenesis 2019 Feb 18;22(1):103-115. Epub 2018 Aug 18.

School of Kinesiology and Health Science and the Muscle Health Research Centre, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Skeletal muscle capillarity is characteristically reduced in mature leptin receptor-deficient (Lepr) mice, which has been attributed to the capillary loss that occurs secondary to metabolic dysfunction. Despite wide recognition of leptin as a pro-angiogenic molecule, the contribution of this adipokine has largely been overlooked in peripheral tissues. Moreover, prior documentation of leptin production within skeletal muscle indicates a potential paracrine role in maintaining local tissue homeostasis. Read More

Department of Cell and Chemical Biology and Oncode Institute, Leiden University Medical Center, Einthovenweg 20, 2300 RC, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Endothelial cells (ECs) have been found to be capable of acquiring a mesenchymal phenotype through a process known as endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT). First seen in the developing embryo, EndMT can be triggered postnatally under certain pathological conditions. During this process, ECs dedifferentiate into mesenchymal stem-like cells (MSCs) and subsequently give rise to cell types belonging to the mesoderm lineage. Read More

PDGF-BB regulates splitting angiogenesis in skeletal muscle by limiting VEGF-induced endothelial proliferation.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 16;21(4):883-900. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

Department of Biomedicine, Basel University Hospital, University of Basel, Hebelstrasse 20, 4031, Basel, Switzerland.

VEGF induces normal or aberrant angiogenesis depending on its dose in the microenvironment around each producing cell in vivo. This transition depends on the balance between VEGF-induced endothelial stimulation and PDGF-BB-mediated pericyte recruitment, and co-expression of PDGF-BB normalizes aberrant angiogenesis despite high VEGF doses. We recently found that VEGF over-expression induces angiogenesis in skeletal muscle through an initial circumferential vascular enlargement followed by longitudinal splitting, rather than sprouting.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary, College of Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

The study of lymphangiogenesis is an emerging science that has revealed the lymphatic system as a central player in many pathological conditions including cancer metastasis, lymphedema, and organ graft rejection. A thorough understanding of the mechanisms of lymphatic growth will play a key role in the development of therapeutic strategies against these conditions. Despite the known potential of this field, the study of lymphatics has historically lagged behind that of hemangiogenesis. Read More

miR-153 inhibits the migration and the tube formation of endothelial cells by blocking the paracrine of angiopoietin 1 in breast cancer cells.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 29;21(4):849-860. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Key Laboratory of Animal Models and Human Disease Mechanisms of Chinese Academy of Sciences & Yunnan Province, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, 650223, China.

The sprouting of endothelial cells is the first step of tumor angiogenesis. Our previous study suggests that miR-153 suppresses breast tumor angiogenesis partially through targeting hypoxia-induced factor (HIF1α). In this study, we demonstrated that miR-153 also suppresses the migration and the tube formation of endothelial cells through directly targeting angiopoietin 1 (ANG1) in breast cancer cells.

IGF2 and IGF1R identified as novel tip cell genes in primary microvascular endothelial cell monolayers.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 27;21(4):823-836. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Ocular Angiogenesis Group, Departments of Ophthalmology and Medical Biology, Amsterdam University Medical Centers, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Tip cells, the leading cells of angiogenic sprouts, were identified in cultures of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) by using CD34 as a marker. Here, we show that tip cells are also present in primary human microvascular endothelial cells (hMVECs), a more relevant endothelial cell type for angiogenesis. By means of flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry, and qPCR, it is shown that endothelial cell cultures contain a dynamic population of CD34 cells with many hallmarks of tip cells, including filopodia-like extensions, elevated mRNA levels of known tip cell genes, and responsiveness to stimulation with VEGF and inhibition by DLL4.

Prion protein is essential for diabetic retinopathy-associated neovascularization.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 30;21(4):767-775. Epub 2018 May 30.

Department of Surgery, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, 4401 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA, 15224, USA.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR), a major complication of diabetes caused by vascular damage and pathological proliferation of retinal vessels, often progresses to vision loss. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) signaling plays a pivotal role in the development of DR, but the exact underlying molecular mechanisms remain ill-defined. Cellular prion protein (PrP) is a surface protein expressed by vascular endothelial cells, and the increased expression of PrP is associated with physiological and pathological vascularization.

Endothelial loss of Fzd5 stimulates PKC/Ets1-mediated transcription of Angpt2 and Flt1.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 29;21(4):805-821. Epub 2018 May 29.

Experimental Cardiology, Department of Cardiology, Thoraxcenter, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Aims: Formation of a functional vascular system is essential and its formation is a highly regulated process initiated during embryogenesis, which continues to play important roles throughout life in both health and disease. In previous studies, Fzd5 was shown to be critically involved in this process and here we investigated the molecular mechanism by which endothelial loss of this receptor attenuates angiogenesis.

Methods And Results: Using short interference RNA-mediated loss-of-function assays, the function and mechanism of signaling via Fzd5 was studied in human endothelial cells (ECs). Read More

Division of Experimental Hematology and Cancer Biology, Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, 45229-3039, USA.

Vascular malformations are defects caused by the abnormal growth of the vasculature. Among them, venous malformation (VM) is an anomaly characterized by slow-flow vascular lesions with abnormally shaped veins, typically in sponge-like configuration. VMs can expand over years causing disfigurement, obstruction of vital structures, thrombosis, bleeding, and pain. Read More

Preclinical impact of high dose intermittent antiangiogenic tyrosine kinase inhibitor pazopanib in intrinsically resistant tumor models.

Angiogenesis 2018 Nov 21;21(4):793-804. Epub 2018 May 21.

Department of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, M5S 2J7, Canada.

Antiangiogenic tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) target vascular endothelial growth factor receptors and other receptor tyrosine kinases. As a result of toxicity, the clinical failures or the modest benefits associated with antiangiogenic TKI therapy may be related in some cases to suboptimal drug dosing and scheduling, thereby facilitating resistance. Most antiangiogenic TKIs, including pazopanib, are administered on a continuous daily basis. Read More

Angiogenesis Laboratory, Department of Medical Oncology, VU University Medical Center, Cancer Center Amsterdam, De Boelelaan 1117, 1081 HV, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The formation of new blood vessels, or angiogenesis, is a complex process that plays important roles in growth and development, tissue and organ regeneration, as well as numerous pathological conditions. Angiogenesis undergoes multiple discrete steps that can be individually evaluated and quantified by a large number of bioassays. These independent assessments hold advantages but also have limitations. Read More

Targeting glioblastoma-derived pericytes improves chemotherapeutic outcome.

Angiogenesis 2018 May 14. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Pathology, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil.

Glioblastoma is the most common malignant brain cancer in adults, with poor prognosis. The blood-brain barrier limits the arrival of several promising anti-glioblastoma drugs, and restricts the design of efficient therapies. Recently, by using state-of-the-art technologies, including thymidine kinase targeting system in combination with glioblastoma xenograft mouse models, it was revealed that targeting glioblastoma-derived pericytes improves chemotherapy efficiency.

Department of Biology and Pharmaceutical Botany, Medical University of Gdansk, Hallera 107, 80-416, Gdańsk, Poland.

The nitric oxide (NO) secreted by vascular endothelium is required for the maintenance of cardiovascular homeostasis. Diminished release of NO generated by endothelial NO synthase contributes to endothelial dysfunction. Hypoxia and ischemia reduce endothelial eNOS expression via posttranscriptional mechanisms that result in NOS3 transcript destabilization. Read More

Inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) raises concerns for premature infants because VEGF is essential for retinovascular development as well as neuronal and glial health. This study tested the hypothesis that endothelial cell-specific knockdown of VEGF receptor 2 (VEGFR2), or downstream STAT3, would inhibit VEGF-induced retinopathy without delaying physiologic retinal vascular development. We developed an endothelial cell-specific lentiviral vector that delivered shRNAs to VEGFR2 or STAT3 and a green fluorescent protein reporter under control of the VE-cadherin promoter. Read More

Molecular and Clinical Sciences Research Institute, St. George's, University of London, Cranmer Terrace, London, SW17 0RE, UK.

Nitric oxide (NO) has been strongly implicated in glioma progression and angiogenesis. The endogenous inhibitors of NO synthesis, asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and N-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA), are metabolized by dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH), and hence, DDAH is an intracellular factor that regulates NO. However, DDAH may also have an NO-independent action. Read More
