In view of the importance of vascular events observed during gestation, it was hypothesized that the VEGF-receptor system plays a critical role during early pregnancy and maternal recognition of pregnancy in pigs. This hypothesis was tested by examining the expression of the VEGF-receptor system in the porcine conceptus. Additionally, the endometrium, corpus luteum (CL) and embryos were studied for the expression of soluble VEGF receptor 1 (sVEGFR-1), the strong endogenous antagonist of VEGF… CONTINUE READING
