Netrins are secreted molecules with roles in axon guidance and angiogenesis. We identified Netrin-4 as a gene specifically overexpressed in VEGF-stimulated endothelial cells (EC) in vitro as well as in vivo. Knockdown of Netrin-4 expression in EC increased their ability to form tubular structures on Matrigel. To identify which receptor is involved, we(More)
Netrins are secreted molecules involved in axon guidance and angiogenesis. We previously showed that Netrin-4 acts as an anti-angiogenic factor by inhibiting endothelial cell (EC) functions. In this study, we investigated the effects of Netrin-4 on vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) activity in vitro and in vivo. We show that exogenous Netrin-4 stimulated(More)
