Skeletal muscle angiogenesis is an important physiological adaptation to increased metabolic demand, possibly dependent on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), the increased expression of which is a known early response to exercise. To test the hypothesis that VEGF is essential to muscle capillary maintenance, we evaluated the consequences of targeted skeletal muscle inhibition of VEGF expression in postnatal, cage-confined VEGFloxP(+/+) mice. To delete VEGF, cre recombinase expression… CONTINUE READING
