Normal tissue function requires adequate supply of oxygen through blood vessels. Understanding how blood vessels form is a challenging objective because angiogenesis is vital to many physiological and pathological processes. Unraveling mechanisms of angiogenesis would offer therapeutic options to ameliorate disorders that are currently leading causes of mortality and morbidity, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic inflammatory disorders, diabetic retinopathy, excessive tissue… CONTINUE READING
