The amino-terminal noncollagenous domain of type XVIII collagen is a Recombinant Human Endostatin fragment, which is 20 kDa in size. The protein inhibits the proliferation and angiogenesis of endothelial cells without being glycosylated. Metalloproteinases like MMP2 and MMP9, as well as cathepsins S, B, and L, generate and/or trim it. The majority of Endostatin's action appears to be concentrated in its Nterminal 27 amino acids. This area comprises three zinc-binding sites that are thought to be important for its antiendothelial and antitumor properties, as well as several cleavage sites that can alter its activity when employed. Mouse, rat, bovine, and horse Endostatin share 84.7% aa sequence identity with Recombinant Human Endostatin.
Endostatin limits endothelial cell development by causing G1 phase cell cycle arrest and death. It may also inhibit angiogenesis by preventing VEGF-induced endothelial cell migration. It changes how FGF basic affects cell adhesion and motility. Endostatin interacts with Transglutaminase 2, heparin, and the integrins alpha 5 beta 1 and alpha v beta 3, which are all produced by or expressed on endothelial cells and regulate adhesion and migration. Endostatin may also have a role in the downregulation of angiogenesis after placental circulation is established in the pregnant uterus. Exogenous systemic Recombinant Human Endostatin improves endothelial and smooth muscle nitric oxide generation and lowers blood pressure, although overexpression in keratinocytes delays excisional wound healing. Endostatin inhibits a wide range of primary and metastatic malignancies because tumor development and metastasis rely on angiogenesis for blood supply.
