Raised levels of latent collagenase activating angiogenesis factor (ESAF) are present in actively growing human intracranial tumours.


Endothelial cell stimulating angiogenesis factor (ESAF) is a potent, low molecular mass mitogen, specific for endothelial cells. In common with various protein growth factors, it displays angiogenic activity in a variety of biological test systems. However, it differs from these other factors by virtue of its low molecular mass and its ability to activate… (More)
