Convergence and amplification of toll-like receptor (TLR) and receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) signaling pathways via high mobility group B1 (HMGB1)
Sustained proinflammatory responses in rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, and diabetic retinopathy, as well as in cancer, are often associated with increased angiogenesis that contributes toExpand

Somatic inactivation of E-cadherin and p53 in mice leads to metastatic lobular mammary carcinoma through induction of anoikis resistance and angiogenesis.
Metastatic disease is the primary cause of death in breast cancer, the most common malignancy in Western women. Loss of E-cadherin is associated with tumor metastasis, as well as with invasiveExpand

Angiogenesis: potentials for pharmacologic intervention in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic inflammation.
Angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels out of pre-existing capillaries, is a sequence of events that is fundamental to many physiologic and pathologic processes such as cancer, ischemicExpand

Galectin-1 is essential in tumor angiogenesis and is a target for antiangiogenesis therapy
We describe that galectin-1 (gal-1) is a receptor for the angiogenesis inhibitor anginex, and that the protein is crucial for tumor angiogenesis. gal-1 is overexpressed in endothelial cells ofExpand

Signalling pathways in vasculogenic mimicry.
Solid tumour growth is dependent on the development of an adequate blood supply. For years, sprouting angiogenesis has been considered an exclusive mechanism of tumour vascularization. However, overExpand

Tumour vascularization: sprouting angiogenesis and beyond
Tumour angiogenesis is a fast growing domain in tumour biology. Many growth factors and mechanisms have been unravelled. For almost 30 years, the sprouting of new vessels out of existing ones wasExpand

Galectin expression in cancer diagnosis and prognosis: A systematic review.
Galectins are a family of proteins that bind to specific glycans thereby deciphering the information captured within the glycome. In the last two decades, several galectin family members have emergedExpand

Entorhinal projections to the hippocampal CA1 region in the rat: An underestimated pathway
The projections of the entorhinal cortex to CA1 in relation to the entorhinal-dentate projections were studied in the rat, using the anterograde transport of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin. ItExpand

Lipid‐based nanoparticles for contrast‐enhanced MRI and molecular imaging
In the field of MR imaging and especially in the emerging field of cellular and molecular MR imaging, flexible strategies to synthesize contrast agents that can be manipulated in terms of size andExpand

Quantum dots with a paramagnetic coating as a bimodal molecular imaging probe.
MRI detectable and targeted quantum dots were developed. To that aim, quantum dots were coated with paramagnetic and pegylated lipids, which resulted in a relaxivity, r(1), of nearly 2000 mM(-1)s(-1)Expand
