The role of angiostatic factors, including endostatin, in regulating physiological angiogenesis is poorly understood. We used normal adult rats under physiological resting conditions to examine the relationship between tissue endostatin, VEGF, and capillary density (CD) in the heart (high metabolic activity) versus the skeletal muscle (relatively low metabolic activity). The heart (left ventricle, LV) and skeletal muscle (anterior tibialis, AT) were dissected from 12-week-old male Sprague… CONTINUE READING
