Endostatin, a biological active fragment of the extracellular matrix protein collagen XVIII, is known to interfere with cellular motility in the context of pathological angiogenesis. However, the physiological role of endostatin remains largely elusive. Recent evidence suggested that the inhibitor is produced in human decidual cells of early pregnancy, indicating that endostatin could be involved in diverse reproductive processes, such as implantation and/or placental differentiation.
