βPix plays a dual role in cerebral vascular stability and angiogenesis, and interacts with integrin αvβ8.

Abstract

The growth of new blood vessels by angiogenesis and their stabilization by the recruitment of perivascular mural cells are thought to be two sequential, yet independent events. Here we identify molecular links between both processes through the βPix and integrin α(v)β(8) proteins. Bubblehead (bbh) mutants with a genetic mutation in βPix show defective… (More)
