Endothelial cell serine proteases expressed during vascular morphogenesis and angiogenesis
Aimes, Ronald T., Zijlstra, Andries, Hooper, John D., Ogbourne, Steven M., Sit, Mae-le, Fuchs, Simone, Gotley, David C., Quigley, James P. , & Antalis, Toni M. (2003) Endothelial cell serine proteases expressed during vascular morphogenesis and angiogenesis. Thrombosis and Haemostasis, 89(3), pp. 561-572.
Many serine proteases play important regulatory roles in complex biological systems, but only a few have been linked directly with capillarry morphogenesis and angiogenesis. Here we provide evidence that serine proteases activities, independent of the plasminogen activation cascade, are required for microvascular endothelial cell reorganization and capillary morphogenesis in vitro.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
