My thesis project focused on identifying the biological activities of ribonuclease 4 (RNASE4), the fourth member of the vertebrate specific, secreted ribonuclease superfamily, and its role in cancer and angiogenesis. RNASE4 shares the same promoters with angiogenin (ANG) and is co-expressed with ANG, suggesting they may have complementary or supplementary biological activities.
