It has an indirect effect by inhibiting matrix metalloproteinase MMP-9, but also a direct effect on endothelial cells. During tumorigenesis it becomes downregulated by several oncogenes (ras, c-myc, v-src, c-jun) whereas tumor suppressor genes (p53, PTEN) induce thrombospondin. Angiostatin is a fragment of plasminogen that is generated from plasminogen by, among others, urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMP). 5 days, much longer than for VEGF. The effects of angiostatin are very selective for endothelial cells, including the induction of cell arrest and apoptosis.
