Abstract:
In this Thesis, I describe my studies on understanding the in vivo role of Rac1 in angiogenesis. Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessel from pre-existing ones, is required during embryogenesis and in a variety of pathological conditions, including cancer. Rac1, a member of the Rho family of small GTPases, has been implicated in integrin and growth factor signal transduction and is thought to regulate cell migration and proliferation; both vital processes-in angiogenesis. However the precise role of Rac1 in angiogenesis in vivo is unknown.
