Angiostatin inhibits extracellular HIV-Tat-induced inflammatory angiogenesis.


The HIV-Tat protein can be released extracellularly where it is able to recruit leukocytes and induce angiogenesis. These activities are mediated by the direct interaction of Tat with VEGFR2 on endothelial cells and chemokine receptors on leukocytes. We have recently shown that angiostatin, an anti-angiogenic peptide fragment of plasminogen, is able to… (More)
