The CAM is an extraembryonic membrane which serves as a gas exchange surface and its respiratory function is provided by an extensive capillary network. The development of the vascular system of the CAM is a complex, highly regulated process that depends on genetic and epigenetic factors expressed by endothelial and non-endothelial cells. In spite of the evidence that several growth factors are angiogenic in the CAM assay, poorly investigated is their role in the development of the CAM's… CONTINUE READING
