As part of the School of Science and Technology Biomedical Sciences Research Centre Seminar Series, Leonid Nikitenko, University of Hull presents: Novel (lymph)angiogenic factors and their receptors in human endothelial cells - from discovery towards translational research.

Abstract

Endothelial cells of blood and lymphatic vessels play significant roles in the pathogenesis of cancer, cardiovascular disease and lymphoedema. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the most intensively studied drug targets, largely due to their substantial involvement in human pathophysiology and their pharmacological tractability. The focus of this talk will be on GPCR calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR) in human endothelial cells and its three putative agonists – adrenomedullin, intermedin and calcitonin gene-related peptide. Specifically, I will explore the prognostic utility of CLR in human tissues and its potential application as a target for drug development in pathologies associated with aberrant angiogenesis and/or vascular and lymphatic insufficiency. This will be done in the context of the findings from our previous and most recent studies aimed at dissecting the properties of CLR endogenously expressed in primary human blood and lymphatic endothelial cells and its agonists as (lymph)angiogenic factors.
