PEDF derived from glial Müller cells: a possible regulator of retinal angiogenesis.


A precise balance between stimulators and inhibitors of angiogenesis, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), respectively, is essential for angiogenic homeostasis in ocular tissues. Retinal hypoxia is accompanied by some pathological conditions that may promote intraocular neovascularization. Here we… (More)
