    ..The lung contains large numbers of EPCs that display commitment for both types of vessels, suggesting that lung blood and lymphatic endothelial cells are derived from a single progenitor cell. ..

    ..The reduced number of lymphatic capillaries indicates a sprouting defect rather than a proliferation defect in the dermis of Wnt5a-ko-mice, and identifies Wnt5a as a regulator of lymphangiogenesis. ..

    ..Our studies demonstrate the feasibility of pro-angiogenic/lymphangiogenic therapies in immunocompetent animals and indicate new MSC/EPC-derived angiogenic factors. ..

    ..The impact of a dual source of LECs for ontogenetic, phylogenetic and pathological lymphangiogenesis is discussed. ..
