Thrombospondin 1 and type I repeat peptides of thrombospondin 1 specifically induce apoptosis of endothelial cells.


Thrombospondin 1 (TSP1) inhibits angiogenesis and modulates endothelial cell adhesion, motility, and growth. The antiproliferative activity of TSP1 is mimicked by synthetic peptides derived from the type I repeats of TSP1 that antagonize fibroblast growth factor 2 and activate latent transforming growth factor beta. These TSP1 analogues induced programmed… (More)
