Abstract

Under physiological conditions, angiogenesis is routinely observed in the uterus. Multiple lines of evidence suggest that estrogen directly modulates angiogenesis via effects on endothelial cells. A clear association between estrogen, estrogen receptor expression by endothelial cells and angiogenic activity has been confirmed. This minireview will discuss the recent progress in research into the role of estrogens in angiogenesis.
