Angiogenesis plays a key role in the wound healing process, involving the migration, growth, and differentiation of endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is controlled by a strict balance of different factors, and among these, the angiogenin protein plays a relevant role. Angiogenin is a secreted protein member of the ribonuclease superfamily that is taken up by cells and translocated to the nucleus when the process of blood vessel formation has to be promoted. However, the chemical signaling that activates the protein, normally present in the plasma, and the transport pathways through which the protein enters the cell are still largely unclear. Copper is also an angiogenic factor that regulates angiogenin expression and participates in the activation of common signaling pathways. The interaction between angiogenin and copper could be a relevant mechanism in regulating the formation of new blood vessel pathways and paving the way to the development of new drugs for chronic non-healing wounds.

Abstract

Angiogenesis plays a key role in the wound healing process, involving the migration, growth, and differentiation of endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is controlled by a strict balance of different factors, and among these, the angiogenin protein plays a relevant role. Angiogenin is a secreted protein member of the ribonuclease superfamily that is taken up by cells and translocated to the nucleus when the process of blood vessel formation has to be promoted. However, the chemical signaling that activates the protein, normally present in the plasma, and the transport pathways through which the protein enters the cell are still largely unclear. Copper is also an angiogenic factor that regulates angiogenin expression and participates in the activation of common signaling pathways. The interaction between angiogenin and copper could be a relevant mechanism in regulating the formation of new blood vessel pathways and paving the way to the development of new drugs for chronic non-healing wounds.
