- Distinct and redundant functions of Esama and VE-cadherin during vascular morphogenesis
Summary: Genetic analyses of Esama function in mutant zebrafish embryos reveal specific and redundant functions of Esama and VE-cadherin proteins in endothelial cell recognition and blood vessel morphogenesis.
- Blood vessel anastomosis is spatially regulated by Flt1 during angiogenesis
Summary: During mammalian blood vessel formation in vivo and in vitro, Flt1 regulates both the frequency of transient contacts that occur before vessels form stable connections and target site selectivity.
- Cell behaviors and dynamics during angiogenesis
Summary: This Review discusses endothelial cell behavior during developmental angiogenesis, focusing on the morphogenetic changes that these cells undergo.
