Unexpected lock and key mechanism found for the assembly of tumor blood vessels

...disrupting its ability to form blood vessels could starve the tumor and stave off cancer." The research team discovered that the integrin brought the endothelia, the inside part of a blood vessel, together to bind with vascular smooth muscle, the outer portion of a blood vessel.
