Signaling angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1998 Apr;10(2):159-64. doi: 10.1016/s0955-0674(98)80137-3.


Exciting progress has been made in elucidating the complex network of receptor-ligand interactions that regulate blood vessel growth. Understanding these control mechanisms is of interest not only because of their role in developmental biology, but because they provide potential therapeutic strategies for disease processes involving angiogenesis, such as tumor growth.
