Abstract

During development, the lymphatic and the blood vascular system form highly branched networks that show extensive architectural similarities with the peripheral nervous system. Increasing evidence suggests that the vascular and the nervous systems share signaling pathways to overcome common challenges such as guidance of growth and patterning. Semaphorins, a large group of proteins originally identified as axon guidance molecules with repelling function, and their receptors, neuropilins and plexins, have recently also been implicated in vascular development. Here, we summarize the role of semaphorins and their receptors in angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, with an emphasis on neuropilin-1/semaphorin 3A interactions in lymphatic vessel maturation and valve formation. Understanding the basic principles of lymphatic vessel development and maturation might facilitate the development of therapies for the treatment of human diseases associated with lymphedema.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 November 2013.
All research outputs
#4,201,156
of 5,036,908 outputs
Outputs from Advances in anatomy embryology and cell biology
#21
of 29 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#105,519
of 130,381 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in anatomy embryology and cell biology
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,036,908 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 29 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one scored the same or higher as 8 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 130,381 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
