Angiogenesis is a complex multi-process involving different activities of endothelial cells. These activities are influenced in vivo by environmental conditions like interactions with other cell types and the micro-environment. Galectins play a role in several of these interactions and are therefore required for proper execution of in vivo angiogenesis. In this chapter we describe a method to study galectins and galectin inhibitors during physiologic and pathophysiologic angiogenesis in vivo
