Regulation of Fas ligand expression by vascular endothelial growth factor in endometrial stromal cells in vitro.

Abstract

When Fas ligand (FasL) interacts with the Fas receptor, it induces apoptosis through autocrine and/or paracrine signalling. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent mitogenic cytokine. VEGF plays a role during remodelling of the endometrium following menstruation. We hypothesized that, by regulating FasL expression, VEGF may play a role in… (More)
