Present research is aimed to examine the number of dermal blood vessels, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), delta-like ligand 4(Dll4) and Jagged-1 (Jag-1) in dermal blood vessels of human from 20weeks of pregnancy to 85years old. Numbers and proliferative activity of dermal fibroblast-like cells were also examined. Blood vessels were viewed with(More)
Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) was examined in the structures of dermis of humans with different ages, from 20 weeks of pregnancy to 85 years. By immunohistochemistry, the fibroblasts and blood vessels positively stained for CTGF were observed in the dermis of all examined ages. An age-dependent increase in the percent of the fibroblasts and blood(More)
The goal of this study was to examine the contents of D114 and Jag-1 angiogenesis regulators in human dermis at different age periods. D114 and Jag-1 were demonstrated by indirect immunohistochemistry in skin sections of fetuses of 20-40 gestational weeks and in persons aged from birth to 85 years. D114 was studied in 150 skin samples of 72 females and 78(More)
