Prostaglandins have emerged as a therapeutic option for patients with peripheral vascular disease as well as pulmonary hypertension as a means to increase blood flow. We tested the hypothesis that prostaglandins regulate vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in the human monocytic THP-1 cell line and in isolated perfused rat lungs. Our data(More)
Angiogenesis plays a key role in tumor growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a pro-angiogenic that is involved in tumor angiogenesis. When VEGF binds to membrane-bound vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (mVEGFR2), it promotes angiogenesis. Through alternative polyadenylation, VEGFR2 is also expressed in a soluble form (sVEGFR2).(More)
