The induction of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression by 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) in many target cells, including epithelial cells, fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells, suggests a role for this hormone in the modulation of angiogenesis and vascular permeability. We have already described a cyclic increase in Flk-1/KDR-expressing capillaries(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is essential for breast cancer progression and is a relevant target in anti-angiogenesis. Although VEGF121 and VEGF165, the fully or partially secreted isoforms, respectively, have been the focus of intense studies, the role of the cell-associated VEGF189 isoform is not understood. To clarify the contribution of(More)
The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a critical factor for development of the vascular system in physiological and pathological angiogenesis. This growth factor exists under at least three isoforms, VEGF120/121, VEGF164/165 and VEGF188/189 which are generated by alternative splicing. VEGF isoforms have different affinities for heparan sulphate(More)
