Mice carrying a homozygous germ-line mutation in the nm23-M1 gene that eliminates its protein expression and drives expression of beta-galactosidase by nm23-M1 promoter have been generated. nm23-M1 gene inactivation is not teratogenic and the pups can grow to adult age without apparent health problems. However, they undergo a growth retardation and knocked(More)
Tissue repair/wound healing, in which angiogenesis plays an important role, is a critical step in many diseases including chronic wound, myocardial infarction, stroke, cancer, and inflammation. Recently, we were the first to report that orphan nuclear receptor TR3/Nur77 is a critical mediator of angiogenesis and its associated microvessel permeability.(More)
Pathological angiogenesis is a hallmark of many diseases. We demonstrated that TR3/Nur77 is an excellent target for pro-angiogenesis and anti-angiogenesis therapies. Here, we report that TR3 transcriptionally regulates endothelial cell migration, permeability and the formation of actin stress fibers that is independent of RhoA GTPase. 1) Amino acid residues(More)
