High-density lipoprotein (HDL) promotes angiogenesis via S1P3-dependent VEGFR2 activation.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) has previously been shown to promote angiogenesis. However, the mechanisms by which HDL enhances the formation of blood vessels remain to be defined. To address this, the effects of HDL on the proliferation, transwell migration and tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells were investigated. By examining the abundance and phosphorylation (i.e., activation) of the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor VEGFR2 and modulating the activity of the sphingosine-1 phosphate receptors S1P1-3 and VEGFR2, we characterized mechanisms controlling angiogenic responses in response to HDL exposure. Here, we report that HDL dose-dependently increased endothelial proliferation, migration and tube formation. These events were in association with increased VEGFR2 abundance and rapid VEGFR2 phosphorylation at Tyr1054/Tyr1059 and Tyr1175 residues in response to HDL. Blockade of VEGFR2 activation by the VEGFR2 inhibitor SU1498 markedly abrogated the pro-angiogenic capacity of HDL. Moreover, the S1P3 inhibitor suramin prevented VEGFR2 expression and abolished endothelial migration and tube formation, while the S1P1 agonist CYM-5442 and the S1P2 inhibitor JTE-013 had no effect. Last, the role of S1P3 was further confirmed in regulation of S1P-induced endothelial proliferation, migration and tube formation via up-regulation and activation of VEGFR2. Together, these findings argue that HDL promotes angiogenesis via S1P3-dependent up-regulation and activation of VEGFR2 and also suggest that the S1P-S1P3-VEGFR2 signaling cascades as a novel target for HDL-modulating therapy implicated in vascular remodeling and functional recovery in atherosclerotic diseases such as myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke.

Olive oil compounds inhibit vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 phosphorylation.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) triggers crucial signaling processes that regulate tumor angiogenesis and, therefore, represents an attractive target for the development of novel anticancer therapeutics. Several epidemiological studies have confirmed that abundant consumption of foods from plant origin is associated with reduced risk of developing cancers. In the Mediterranean basin, the consumption of extra virgin olive oil is an important constituent of the diet. Compared to other vegetable oils, the presence of several phenolic antioxidants in olive oil is believed to prevent the occurrence of a variety of pathological processes, such as cancer. While the strong antioxidant potential of these molecules is well characterized, their antiangiogenic activities remain unknown. The aim of this study is to investigate whether tyrosol (Tyr), hydroxytyrosol (HT), taxifolin (Tax), oleuropein (OL) and oleic acid (OA), five compounds contained in extra virgin olive oil, can affect in vitro angiogenesis. We found that HT, Tax and OA were the most potent angiogenesis inhibitors through their inhibitory effect on specific autophosphorylation sites of VEGFR-2 (Tyr951, Tyr1059, Tyr1175 and Tyr1214) leading to the inhibition of endothelial cell (EC) signaling. Inhibition of VEGFR-2 by these olive oil compounds significantly reduced VEGF-induced EC proliferation and migration as well as their morphogenic differentiation into capillary-like tubular structures in Matrigel. Our study demonstrates that HT, Tax and OA are novel and potent inhibitors of the VEGFR-2 signaling pathway. These findings emphasize the chemopreventive properties of olive oil and highlight the importance of nutrition in cancer prevention.
