Example sentences for: ang-

How can you use “ang-” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Interestingly Ang-2 acts as an agonist for Tie2 receptors expressed on fibroblasts [ 6 ] . Since the neovascularization process is dependent on the dominance of angiogenic mediators over inhibitors, the higher Ang-1 mRNA and protein expression compared to Ang-2 in RA synovial tissue is of importance.

  • To determine which of these angiogenic factors may play a role in RA, we investigated both the distribution and the levels of mRNA for Tie1, Tie2, Ang-1 and Ang-2 in synovial tissue obtained from RA patients, compared with that from subjects with osteoarthritis (OA) and normal tissues.

  • Ang-1, was expressed on synovial lining cells in RA patients (33%) to a significantly higher degree than in OA (10%) and normal (1%) cells ( P < 0.05) (Fig.

  • Ang-1 staining on macrophages was also significantly higher in RA (39%) compared to OA (10%) and normal cells (0%) ( P < 0.05).

  • It has been shown that increasing amounts of Ang-2 can block the chemotactic activity of Ang-1 in endothelial cells [ 21 ] . Ang-2 alone did not stimulate corneal neovascularization, but the combination of Ang-2 and VEGF resulted in longer vessels with greater circumferential extent than those seen with VEGF alone [ 9 ] . This suggests that Ang-2 expression in the absence of VEGF leads to vessel regression, whereas expression of Ang-2 in the presence of VEGF potentiates angiogenesis.
