Abstract

Erucamide (13-docosenamide) was found to be the major bovine mesentery angiogenic lipid as assessed by chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay. Two micrograms of this lipid caused angiogenesis in the assay. Angiogenic activity of this naturally occurring lipid was also found by rat corneal micropocket and mouse dorsal air-sac assays. Specificity of the chemical structure which elicited activity was low, however. The mechanism of angiogenic activity is unknown and this lipid does not promote proliferation of endothelial cells or induce inflammatory effects.
