PURPOSE To determine the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in embryonic eye development and lens differentiation. METHODS Expression of components of the VEGF signaling pathway during lens development and in adults was characterized by beta-galactosidase staining of VEGF-LacZ mice, immunohistochemistry, and real-time (q) PCR. Embryonic eyes from wild-type mice and VEGF120/120 mice were analyzed by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry. VEGF function during lens development… CONTINUE READING
