Certain tissues such as cartilage are resistant to vascular invasion, yet no single tissue-derived molecule that can inhibit angiogenesis has been reported. A protein derived from cartilage was purified that inhibits angiogenesis in vivo and capillary endothelial cell proliferation and migration in vitro in three separate bioassays. This protein is also an(More)
An inhibitor of neovascularization from the conditioned media of scapular chondrocytes established and maintained in serum-free culture has been isolated and characterized. To determine whether this chondrocyte-derived inhibitor (ChDI) was capable of inhibiting neovascularization in vivo, this protein was assayed in the chick chorioallantoic membrane assay.(More)
Heparin was previously reported to potentiate the mitogenic activity of endothelial cell mitogens in a crude extract of bovine hypothalami (Thornton, S. C., Mueller, S. N., and Levine, E. M. (1983) Science 222, 623-625). We and others (Gospodarowicz, D., and Cheng, J. (1986) J. Cell. Physiol. 128, 475-484) have reported that the growth stimulatory effects(More)
An inhibitor of mammalian collagenase from bovine scapular cartilage has been purified to homogeneity. The inhibitor, extracted from cartilage using 2 M NaCl, was applied to an A-1.5m gel filtration column. Inhibitor eluted at an apparent Mr of 28,000. Further purification was achieved by ion exchange chromatography, gel filtration, and reverse-phase high(More)
