Transforming growth factor-beta 1 induces vascular endothelial growth factor expression in murine proximal tubular epithelial cells.

Abstract

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent endothelial cell mitogen that promotes angiogenesis, vasculogenesis, and increases vascular permeability. VEGF is expressed in renal tubular epithelial cells and urinary VEGF excretion is increased in various glomerular disorders. However, the mechanisms underlying expression of VEGF in renal tubular… (More)
