Other antiangiogenic molecules, such as endostatin, angiostatin and thrombospondin, that are natural components of the ECM, can also bind to avb3 and disrupt the endothelial cell– extracellular matrix interactions. , 2003; Stupack and Cheresh, 2004). , 2003). Many matrix components have 8 CH1 ENDOTHELIAL CELL BIOLOGY heparin binding motifs that mediate the interaction with cell surface HSPGs. This group of cell surface adhesion molecules consist of a core protein that is covalently linked to heparin sulphate-type glycosaminoglycan side-chains.

Based on their structure and substrate specificity, they are classified into several subgroups: collagenases, stromelysins, matrilysins, gelatinases and membrane type MMPs. Most of them are secreted as zymogens that will be activated by other MMPs or serine proteinases. After detachment of endothelial cells, MMPs can promote migration and proliferation of endothelial cells. In the initial step of angiogenesis a fibrin gel, a provisional matrix generated from fibrinogen leakage, is polymerized and endothelial cells attach to these provisional matrix components including fibrin, vitronectin, fibronectin, collagen I and thrombin.

The field of angiogenesis started to gain real attention when it was hypothesized that 1) tumours are most vulnerable at the level of their blood supply and 2) because tumours are dependent on angiogenesis, blocking angiogenesis would be a tool for therapeutic intervention (Folkman, 1971). The process of angiogenesis is tightly regulated by positive and negative regulators. The balance between both determines the level of ongoing angiogenesis. A number of angiogenic growth factors and inhibitors are discussed below.
