Besides the direct, targeted effects of ionizing irradiation (x-ray) on cancer cells, namely DNA damage and cell death induction, indirect, nontargeted ones exist, which are mediated in large part by the immune system. Immunogenic forms of tumor cell death induced by x-ray, including immune modulating danger signals like the heat shock protein 70, adenosine(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is not only essential for vasculogenesis and angiogenesis but is also capable of inducing tissue factor, the prime initiator of coagulation, in endothelial cells. In this study we have analyzed the VEGF-elicited pathways involved in the induction of tissue factor in human umbilical cord vein endothelial cells. Using(More)
