Retinal angiogenesis is mediated by an interaction between the angiotensin type 2 receptor, VEGF, and angiopoietin.

Abstract

There is evidence that angiotensin II, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), angiopoietins, and their cognate receptors participate in retinal angiogenesis. We investigated whether angiotensin type 2-receptor blockade (AT2-RB) reduces retinal angiogenesis and alters the expression of VEGF/VEGF-R2 and angiopoietin-Tie2. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP… (More)
