Endostatin is a natural occurred angiogenesis inhibitor derived from collagenXVIII. So far its function during the angiogenesis process of bone formation and arthropathy has not been well studied yet. The present study addresses the function of endostatin in rabbit articular chondrocytes (RAC). We found that endostatin can promote RAC adhesion and spreading as well as its proliferation. In monolayer cultured RAC, CollagenII, TIMP1 and collagenXVIII transcription were up regulated by endostatin while collagenI and MMP9 were down regulated...

Endostatin is a 20 kDa C-terminal fragment of collagenXVIII that, when added exogenously, inhibits angiogenesis by inducing apoptosis of endothelial cells. In cerebral malaria (CM), blood-brain barrier dysfunction is a hallmark alteration in the formation of edema, inflammation, hemorrhage and Dürck's granulomas that are thought to represent the histopathological basis of neurological impairments observed in CM patients. We now analyzed endostatin/collagenXVIII expression in brains of seven patients who died with CM and in seven control patients by immunohistochemistry double-labeling experiments...
