Tetrac is a Thyrointegrin Receptor Antagonist

In the angiogenesis process, integrins are members of a family of cell surface transmembrane receptors. They play a critical role particularly in blood vessel formation and the local release of vascular growth factors. Thyroid hormones such as T4 and T3 promote angiogenesis and tumor cell proliferation via integrin αvβ3...

Alofanib, An Allosteric Inhibitor of FGFR2

FGF family participates in a variety of physiological processes in adult organism including regulation of angiogenesis. FGF acts via high affinity binding to specific receptors (FGFR) in various cells and stimulates cell proliferation, differentiation, and migration. Angiogenesis plays a pivotal role in the development of various physiological and pathological...
