Immune cells play an important role in the onset of angiogenesis. Here, we report that VEGF represents the major proangiogenic factor expressed by T cells exposed to hypoxia, a common feature of inflammation and tumor microenvironment. The supernatants of hypoxic T cells were highly angiogenic when delivered on the chick embryo CAM. The angiogenic response was abrogated by a neutralizing anti-VEGF antibody and mimicked by rVEGF. Interestingly, VEGF induction by hypoxia was up-regulated in Jurkat T cells overexpressing the adaptor protein p66Shc but not the inactive S36 p66Shc mutant, and it was abolished in p66Shc-/- mouse splenocytes. Accordingly, the angiogenic response induced by the supernatants from hypoxic p66Shc-/- splenocytes was reduced dramatically when compared with the wild-type controls. In conclusion, hypoxic T cells may contribute to the onset of angiogenesis through a novel VEGF-mediated mechanism, where p66Shc acts as a positive regulator.
