Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (VEGI), a new member of the tumor necrosis factor family, is an endothelial cell-specific gene and a potent inhibitor of endothelial cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and tumor growth. We report here that VEGI mediates the following two activities in endothelial cells: early G(1) arrest in G(0)/G(1) cells responding to(More)
Angiopoietin-1 is a promoter of physiological vasculogenesis and angiogenesis because it induces vascular branching and smooth muscle recruitment to newly formed blood vessels. However, angiopoietin-1 expression in tumours appears to be uncommon, and angiopoietin-1 overexpression in cancer cells has been reported to lead to inhibition of xenograft tumour(More)
