Structure and function of collagen-derived endostatin inhibitors of angiogenesis.

Abstract

Endostatins are inhibitors of endothelial cell migration and angiogenesis and have been shown to reduce tumor growth in animal models. They are derived from the nontriplehelical C-terminal NC1 domains of collagens XV and XVIII, which are released proteolytically in trimeric form and further converted to monomeric endostatins of about 20 kDa. Both endostatin… (More)
