Analysis of a Zebrafish VEGF Receptor Mutant Reveals Specific Disruption of Angiogenesis

Abstract

Blood vessels form either by the assembly and differentiation of mesodermal precursor cells (vasculogenesis) or by sprouting from preexisting vessels (angiogenesis). Endothelial-specific receptor tyrosine kinases and their ligands are known to be essential for these processes. Targeted disruption of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) or its receptor… (More)
