It is shown that any inverse semigroup of endomorphisms of an object in a properly (E, M)-structured category admitting intersections may be embedded in an inverse monoid of partial automorphisms between retracts of that object. It follows that every inverse monoid is isomorphic with an inverse monoid of all partial automorphisms between [non-trivial] retracts of some object of any [almost] algebraically universal and properly (E, M)-structured category with intersections; in particular, of an [almost] algebraically universal and finitely complete category with arbitrary intersections. Several examples are given.
