Multiple cell types involved in the regulation of angiogenesis express Wnt ligands. Although β-catenin dependent and independent Wnt signaling pathways have been shown to control angiogenesis, the contribution of individual cell types to activate these downstream pathways in endothelial cells (ECs) during blood vessel formation is still elusive.

The WNT signaling enhancer R-spondin3 (RSPO3) is prominently expressed in the vasculature. Correspondingly, embryonic lethality of Rspo3-deficient mice is caused by vessel remodeling defects. Yet the mechanisms underlying vascular RSPO3 function remain elusive. Inducible endothelial Rspo3 deletion (Rspo3-iECKO) resulted in perturbed developmental and tumor(More)
Telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) is fundamental in determining the life span by regulating telomere length of chromosomes. To address the question whether the enhancement of the proliferative potential hampers cell differentiation, we generated TERT-over-expressing endothelial cells (ECs) and analyzed in vitro their (1) barrier function; (2)(More)
Pay them and they will stay. Keep them and it will pay. Those are the two simple messages of Nature’s survey. Countries wherein the salaries of scientists are rising rapidly — for example, Brazil, China and India — are those where job satisfaction is rising. These nations are also stemming the brain drain and increasing their publications in peer-reviewed(More)
