Scientists identify in the journal Nature a new molecular pathway used to suppress blood vessel branching in the developing retina "“ a finding with potential therapeutic value for fighting diseases of the retina and a variety of cancers. Researchers report that myeloid cells, blood cells involved in the immune system, use this molecular pathway to guide blood vessel patterning in the retina. Furthermore, in the same study researchers were able to reverse this pathway to accelerate the...
