Résumé : Ephrins are membrane-linked ligands with an autocrine and/or immediate paracrine action. Ephrins were previously involved in embryonic neurogenesis, axonal guidance and/or retraction. Here, we will present data of the literature describing their roles in angiogenesis and in tumor progression. The capacity for ephrins to act in opposite directions will be discussed.
