Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and nitric oxide (NO) seem to be involved in the process of angiogenesis, but their interactions are not clearly understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of VEGF on NO production of choroidal endothelial cells (CEC) and its importance in angiogenesis. Experiments were performed using… CONTINUE READING
