Role of pericytes in angiogenesis: focus on cancer angiogenesis and anti-angiogenic therapy.

Abstract

Pericytes, a kind of mural cells for microcirculation, are critical for vascular development and function. Although current studies indicate that PDGF/PDGFR-β, Ang/Tie2, TGF-β involve in the regulation of pericytes recruitment, the mechanisms governing pericytes migration and regulating angiogenesis, especially in cancers, have not been fully clear. Many… (More)
