In the last years several studies have shown that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is present in neural stem cells and mature neurons from different neural tissues where it may play an important role as a neuroproliferative and/or antiapoptotic factor. The olfactory neuroepithelium has the capability to replace dying neurons with new neurons formed by cell division from stem cells in the basal region of the epithelium. The present study demonstrates, for the first time, that VEGF is… CONTINUE READING
