Forkhead transcription factors regulate expression of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 in endothelial cells and CXCL12-induced cell migration.


Foxc1 and Foxc2 transcription factors are required for vascular development. However, the molecular mechanisms by which Foxc1 and Foxc2 control angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels and capillaries, remain unknown. CXC chemokine ligand 12 (CXCL12) and its receptor, CXCR4, are critical for the process of angiogenesis… (More)
