RATIONALE Endothelial cell-specific molecule 1 (Esm1) is a secreted protein thought to play a role in angiogenesis and inflammation. However, there is currently no direct in vivo evidence supporting a function of Esm1 in either of these processes. OBJECTIVE To determine the role of Esm1 in vivo and the underlying molecular mechanisms. METHODS AND(More)
Endothelial sprouting and proliferation are tightly coordinated processes mediating the formation of new blood vessels during physiological and pathological angiogenesis. Endothelial tip cells lead sprouts and are thought to suppress tip-like behaviour in adjacent stalk endothelial cells by activating Notch. Here, we show with genetic experiments in(More)
