The known endothelial mitogens stimulate growth of vascular endothelial cells without regard to their tissue of origin. Here we report a growth factor that is expressed largely in one type of tissue and acts selectively on one type of endothelium. This molecule, called endocrine-gland-derived vascular endothelial growth factor (EG-VEGF), induced proliferation, migration and fenestration (the formation of membrane discontinuities) in capillary endothelial cells derived from endocrine glands… CONTINUE READING

Expression of human EG - VEGF messenger RNA is restricted to the steroidogenic glands , ovary , testis , adrenal and placenta and is often complementary to the expression of VEGF , suggesting that these molecules function in a coordinated manner .
