In contrast, no apparent developmental defects in the vasculature result from deletion of PAR2. There are several mechanisms by which PAR1 signaling can influence endothelial function in angiogenesis, including regulation of TGF-β receptor internalization (82), attenuation of endothelial cell proliferation (83), and regulation of endothelial progenitor cell differentiation (84,85). Thrombin supports tumor or endothelial cell survival and proliferation (86), but TF and KHORANA Hemostasis and Angiogenesis R2 08/30/07 Chapter 02 23 PAR2 signaling can induce similar cellular effects (71,87–89).

Phage display screening has recently identified tumor stroma–homing peptides that require both fibronectin and fibrin deposition for binding, demonstrating that fibrin– fibronectin complexes are an important component of tumor stroma (42). FXIII directly and indirectly, through α2-antiplasmin cross-linking, counteracts fibrin degradation and thus stabilizes the transitional matrix of the tumor microenvironment (43). Indeed, FXIII has proangiogenic effects and FXIII-deficient mice display reduced angiogenesis and wound healing.
