Paladin, a putative phosphatase, is expressed in the vasculature.
During angiogenesis Paladin is expressed in endothelial cells of veins and capillaries.
In certain mature vessels, Paladin expression is shifted to vascular smooth muscle cells of arteries.
Paladin expression is reactivated during pathological tumor angiogenesis in the adult.
