Temporally expressed PDGF and FGF-2 regulate embryonic coronary artery formation and growth.


OBJECTIVE PDGF and FGF-2 are important regulators of vascular wall assembly. We tested the hypothesis that their embryonic temporal expression facilitates 2 specific events: (1) the endothelial invasion of the aortic root to form the coronary artery stems and (2) the subsequent growth and development of the arterial tree. METHODS AND RESULTS Addition of… (More)
