The genetic and molecular mechanisms that control the development of capillary blood vessels during follicular development are beginning to be elucidated. Ovarian follicles contain and produce angiogenic factors that may act alone or in concert to regulate the process of thecal angiogenesis. These factors are ultimately controlled by endocrine, paracrine and autocrine regulation. A recent study indicated that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays an important role in the process of… CONTINUE READING
