Abstract [en]

Chemokines are a family of small heparin-binding proteins, mostly known for their role in inflammation and immune surveillance, which have emerged as important regulators of angiogenesis. Chemokines influence angiogenesis either through recruitment of pro-angiogenic immune cells and endothelial progenitors to the neo-vascular niche or via direct regulation of endothelial function downstream of activation of G-protein coupled chemokine receptors. The dual function of chemokines in regulating immune response and angiogenesis confers a central role in modulating the tissue microenvironment. Therefore, chemokines may constitute attractive targets for therapeutic intervention in several pathological disorders. This review will summarize the current understanding of the role of chemokines in angiogenesis, and give an overview of angiostatic and angiogenic chemokines and their crosstalk with other angiogenic factors.
