Molecular Mechanisms of Angiogenesis: From Ontogenesis to by Jean-Jacques Feige, Gilles Pagès, Fabrice Soncin

By Jean-Jacques Feige, Gilles Pagès, Fabrice Soncin

Angiogenesis is a multi-stage approach that drives the iteration of latest blood and lymphatic vessels from pre-existing ones. it truly is hugely lively in the course of embryogenesis, mostly inactive in the course of maturity yet reactivated in the course of wound therapeutic and below a few pathological stipulations together with melanoma and ocular ailments. as well as endothelial cells, which line the partitions of the vessels, a number of different phone kinds (pericytes, macrophages, progenitor cells…) additionally give a contribution to angiogenesis. a couple of signaling pathways are activated and extremely finely music the fragile morphogenetic occasions that eventually result in the formation of solid blood evidence neovessels.

This publication stories fresh advances in our figuring out of the molecular and mobile mechanisms of angiogenesis, with a spotlight on tips to combine those observations into the context of developmental, post-natal and pathological neovascularization.

The e-book was once released lower than the auspices of the French Angiogenesis Society. so much members are fashionable individuals of this Society or overseas researchers who've actively contributed to the once a year conferences of the Society.

In the intestine, specialised lymphatic vessels called lacteals are responsible for the absorption of dietary lipids. They are taken up by lymphatic vessels in the form of chylomicrons that are secreted by intestinal enterocytes and transported to adipose and muscle tissue where their triglyceride components are unloaded before the chylomicron remnants are taken up by the liver. Recent work demonstrates that lymphatic vessels play an active role also in the clearance of cholesterol from peripheral tissues (Martel and Randolph 2013; Lim et al.

2008; Wigle et al. 2002; Wigle and Oliver 1999). Overexpression studies further showed that Prox1 has the ability to reprogramme venous endothelial cells into the lymphatic state in vitro and in vivo; however, reprogramming was not induced in arterial endothelia in vivo (Kim et al. 2013; Petrova et al. 2002). The prerequisite of venous identity for LEC differentiation may be explained by both cell-nonautonomous and cell-autonomous mechanisms. Kim et al. proposed that the presence of smooth muscle cells (SMC) in direct contact with arterial endothelial cells is sufficient to repress Prox1 expression in the latter (Kim et al.

These studies led to a model in which platelet interaction with LECs induces their aggregation and subsequent sealing of the developing lymph sacs from the venous circulation (Bertozzi et al. 2010; Osada et al. 2012). In SYK-deficient mice, abnormal accumulation of pro-(lymph)angiogenic monocytes in the skin was shown to lead to vessel hyperplasia and aberrant connections between the actively sprouting blood and lymphatic vessels, which provides an additional explanation for the blood-filled lymphatic vessel phenotype in these embryos (Bohmer et al.
