Angiogenesis is a complex process that involves endothelial cell proliferation, migration, basement membrane degradation, and neovessel organization. Angiostatin, consisting of four homologous triple-disulfide bridged kringle domains, has previously been shown to exhibit profound inhibition of endothelial cell proliferation in vitro and angiogenesis in(More)
A Crotalus horridus genomic library was screened for clones containing microsatellite loci by hybridization with oligonucleotides consisting of a (dC x dA)n dinucleotide repeat. Primers designed to amplify six of the microsatellite loci were used to screen 32 unrelated individuals representing populations in eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, North(More)
Seagrass communities dominate the Laguna Madre, which accounts for 25% of the coastal region of Texas. Seagrasses are essential to the health of the Laguna Madre (LM) and have experienced an overall decline in coverage in the Lower Laguna Madre (LLM) since 1967. Little is known on the existing environmental status of the LLM. This study focuses on the trace(More)
Angiogenesis is a multi-step process that includes endothelial cell proliferation, migration, basement membrane degradation, and new lumen organization. Angiostatin, an internal fragment of plasminogen comprising the first four triple disulfide-linked kringle structures, is one of the most potent endogenous angiogenesis inhibitors described to date.
