Neonatal hypoxic preconditioning involves vascular endothelial growth factor.

Abstract

We studied hypoxic preconditioning (HxP) in the murine developing brain, focusing on the role for vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Newborn mice were used as follows: (1) HxP (or normoxia) then intracerebral (i.c.) NMDA or AMPA-kainate agonist; (2) HxP then intraperitoneal (i.p.) anti-VEGFR2/Flk1 or anti-VEGFR1/Flt1 monoclonal blocking antibody… (More)
