A Norrin/Wnt Surrogate Antibody Stimulates Endothelial Cell Barrier Function and Rescues Retinopathy

Scientists developed F4L5.13, a tetravalent antibody designed to induce FZD4 and LRP5 proximity in such a way as to trigger βcatenin signaling. Treatment of cultured endothelial cells with F4L5.13 rescued permeability induced by VEGF in part by promoting surface expression of junction proteins.

Visceral Obesity and Insulin Resistance Associate with CD36 Deletion in Lymphatic Endothelial Cells

Investigators showed that that intestinal lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) have an increasing CD36 expression from lymphatic capillaries to collecting vessels, and that LEC CD36 regulated lymphatic integrity and optimized lipid transport.

Intravital Imaging Identifies the VEGF-TXA2 Axis as a Critical Promoter of PGE2 Secretion from Tumor Cells and Immune Evasion

Investigators showed that VEGF-dependent release of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) triggers Ca2+ transients in tumor cells, culminating in PGE2 secretion and subsequent immune evasion in the early stages of tumorigenesis.
