The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its high-affinity binding receptors, the tyrosine kinases Flt-1 and Flk-1, are thought to be important for the development of embryonic vasculature. Here we report that Flt-1 is essential for the organization of embryonic vasculature, but is not essential for endothelial cell differentiation. Mouse embryos(More)
Angiogenesis is an important component in the development of thyroid goitre. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) represents a family of specific endothelial cell mitogens involved in normal angiogenesis and in tumour development. The purpose of this study was to determine the distribution of VEGF in thyroid tissues during goitre formation, and to(More)
