Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an endothelial cell mitogen and permeability factor the role of which in ovarian angiogenesis has been the subject of increasing interest. It was the objective of this communication to explore the possibility that interleukin (IL)-1 may regulate the in vitro expression of rat ovarian VEGF mRNA, as well as to study the in vivo expression of rat ovarian VEGF transcripts during follicular maturation, ovulation, and corpora lutea formation.
