Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) is a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis, suggesting that loss of this factor may be involved in angiogenic eye disease. Here, we show that PEDF inhibits angiotensin II-induced smooth muscle cell proliferation through its anti-oxidative properties. Our present study suggests that PEDF may play a protective role against atherosclerosis.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
