N2 - We investigate the relationship between endomorphisms of the Cuntz algebra O_2 and endomorphisms of the Thompson groups F, T and V represented inside the unitary group of O_2. For an endomorphism λ_u of O_2, we show that λ_u(V) is contained in V if and only if uεV. If λ_u is an automorphism of O_2 then uεV is equivalent to the containment of λ_u(F) in V. Our investigations are facilitated by introduction of the concept of modestly scaling endomorphism of O_n, whose properties and examples are investigated.
