Endothelial to mesenchymal transition (EndMT) is a poorly understood
phenomenon that results in normal endothelial cells acquiring a mesenchymal phenotype.
EndMT has been observed in a number of pathological conditions, from cancer
to fibrosis to cardiovascular disease and the process itself may play an important
mechanistic role in the development of these disease states.
Keywords: Endothelial cell, endothelial to mesenchymal transition, EndMT, TGFβ, FGF.
