OBJECTIVES: Impaired angiogenesis in cardiac tissue is a major complication of diabetes. This study was aimed to evaluate the effects of testosterone and voluntary exercise on vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A), stromal cell-derived factor 1a (SDF-1a) and myocardial capillary density in heart of rats with diabetes. METHODS: Type 1 diabetes was induced by intraperitoneal injection of 55 mg/kg of streptozotocin in 80 male Wistar rats. After 42 days of treatment with testosterone (2 mg/kg/day) or voluntary exercise alone or in combination, angiogenesis was determined in the hearts by immunostaining for PECAM-1/CD31...

Microvascular lesion in diabetic peripheral arterial disease (PAD) still cannot be resolved by current surgical and interventional technique. Endothelial cells have the therapeutic potential to cure microvascular lesion. To evaluate the efficacy and immune-regulatory impact of intra-arterial infusion of autologous CD133(+) cells, we recruited 53 patients with diabetic PAD (27 of CD133(+) group and 26 of control group). CD133(+) cells enriched from patients' PB-MNCs were reinfused intra-arterially. The ulcer healing followed up till 18 months was 100% (3/3) in CD133(+) group and 60% (3/5) in control group...

UNLABELLED: Effectively stimulating angiogenesis and avoiding wound infection are great challenges in wound care management. Designing new healing dressings with requisite angiogenic capacity and antibacterial performance is of particular significance. In order to achieve this aim, we prepared a copper (Cu)-containing bioactive glass nanocoating (40-50nm) with uniform nanostructure on natural eggshell membrane (Cu-BG/ESM) by the pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. The surface physicochemical properties including hydrophilicity and hardness of ESM were significantly improved after depositing Cu-BG nanocoatings...

The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-VEGF receptor (R) system is deeply involved in angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. VEGFR1/ Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (Flt-1) and VEGFR2 are significantly expressed in vascular endothelial cells, where they transfer proangiogenic signals. Particularly, VEGFR2 has strong tyrosine kinase activity; thus, the major and direct angiogenic signals are generated from VEGFR2. VEGFR3 is specifically expressed in lymphatic endothelial cells, generating the main signal for lymphangiogenesis...

Copper stimulation of angiogenesis at the organ system level is vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) dependent, but copper stimulation of vascular endothelial cell proliferation in cultures is VEGF independent. The present study was undertaken to use isolated rat aortic rings to understand the seemly controversial observations between in vivo and in vitro studies. The thoracic aorta was isolated from Sprague Dawley rats (8-10 weeks) and sectioned into 1.0-mm thick vascular rings for culturing. Copper sulfide at a final concentration of 5, 25, 50 or 100 μM was added to the cultures and maintained for 8 days...

Despite a general repression of translation under hypoxia, cells selectively upregulate a set of hypoxia-inducible genes. Results from deep sequencing revealed that Let-7 and miR-103/107 are hypoxia-responsive microRNAs (HRMs) that are strongly induced in vascular endothelial cells. In silico bioinformatics and in vitro validation showed that these HRMs are induced by HIF1α and target argonaute 1 (AGO1), which anchors the microRNA-induced silencing complex (miRISC). HRM targeting of AGO1 resulted in the translational desuppression of VEGF mRNA...

Angiogenesis is critical in tissue engineering, and bioceramic-induced angiogenesis has been reported. However, the role of other types of cells such as fibroblasts in this bioceramic-induced angiogenesis process has not been reported, and is closer to the in vivo situation of tissue regeneration. In this study, the paracrine effect of silicate bioceramic-induced angiogenesis in the presence of fibroblasts was confirmed by investigating the effects of calcium silicate (CS), one of the simplest silicate bioactive ceramics, on angiogenesis in co-cultures of human dermal fibroblasts (HDF) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC)...

Stromal fibroblasts, the most abundant and probably the most active cellular component of breast cancer-associated stroma, become active and promote angiogenesis through paracrine effects. However, it still unclear how these processes are regulated. Here, we have shown that down-regulation of the tumor suppressor p16(INK4A) protein enhances the migration/invasion abilities of breast stromal fibroblasts, which form dendritic network of extensions into matrigel. Furthermore, we present clear evidence that p16(INK4A) represses the expression/secretion of the proangiogenesis protein vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A)...

Adenomyosis is a common estrogen-dependent disorder of females characterized by a downward extension of the endometrium into the uterine myometrium and neovascularization in ectopic lesions. It accounts for chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, and infertility in 8.8-61.5% women worldwide. However, the molecular mechanisms for adenomyosis development remain poorly elucidated. Here, we utilized a two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis/MS-based proteomics analysis to compare and identify differentially expressed proteins in matched ectopic and eutopic endometrium of adenomyosis patients...

Chromosome 14 was transferred into tumorigenic nasopharyngeal carcinoma and esophageal carcinoma cell lines by a microcell-mediated chromosome transfer approach. Functional complementation of defects present in the cancer cells suppressed tumor formation. A candidate tumor-suppressor gene, cysteine-rich intestinal protein 2 (CRIP2), located in the hot spot for chromosomal loss at 14q32.3, was identified as an important candidate gene capable of functionally suppressing tumor formation. Previous studies have shown that CRIP2 is associated with development...

PURPOSE: Wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which accounts for most AMD-related vision loss, is characterized by choroidal neovascularization (CNV). The underlying mechanism of CNV is poorly understood, but evidence indicates pathologic recruitment of normal angiogenic signaling pathways such as the VEGF pathway. Recent evidence suggests that the VEGF pathway regulates angiogenesis in concert with Notch signaling. Here, the authors examined the role of Notch signaling in CNV in the backdrop of Notch signaling-mediated regulation of retinal angiogenesis...

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. The majority of patients present with advanced disease, and treatment with standard cytotoxic chemotherapy improves survival and quality of life in patients with a preserved functional status. However, the prognosis is poor with the majority of patients dying in less than a year. Treatment with standard cytotoxic chemotherapy has reached a therapeutic plateau, and new therapeutic approaches have investigated therapies that target the specific molecular pathways involved in carcinogenesis and angiogenesis...

To determine the proangiogenesis effect of series of saccharides and a synthetic oligosaccharide and potential mechanisms, an in vitro 3-dimensional endothelial cell sprouting (3D-ECS) assay and the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model were used. We demonstrated that a sulfated oligosaccharide significantly promotes the endothelial capillary network initiated by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (b-FGF). Furthermore, although the capillary network initiated by VEGF and b-FGF lasts no more than 7 days, addition of a sulfated oligosaccharide significantly amplifies angiogenesis and stabilizes the capillary network of new blood vessels...

The demonstration that angiogenic growth factors can stimulate new blood vessel growth and restore perfusion in animal models of myocardial ischemia has led to the development of strategies designed for the local production of angiogenic growth factors in patients who are not candidates for conventional revascularization. The results of recent clinical trials of proangiogenesis gene therapy have been disappointing; however, significant limitations in experimental design, in particular in gene transfer strategies, preclude drawing definitive conclusions...

It has been shown that many antihistamines may have anti-inflammatory activity in addition to being H1 antagonists. Mizolastine (MIZ), a novel antihistamine, might also have anti-angiogenesis properties. In this study, we investigated the influence of MIZ on proangiogenesis factors, vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF), tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and keratinocyte-derived chemokine (KC) in murine mast cells by using ELISA and RT-PCR, as compared with dexamethasone (DEX) and loratadine (LOR)...

The stromal compartments of hematopoietic organs (eg, spleen) are known to influence the viability and growth of diseased hematopoietic progenitors. Here we have used Friend murine leukemia virus (F-MuLV)-induced erythroleukemia to investigate factors of the splenic microenvironment that may make it fertile for the expansion and survival of malignant erythroblasts. We found that splenectomized, erythroleukemic mice exhibited extended survival compared with age-matched sham controls. In vitro, the proliferation of primary erythroleukemic cells cocultured with leukemic-derived splenic adherent cells or their conditioned media was found to be significantly higher than that observed in cocultures with healthy-derived adherent splenic cells...
