In conclusion, VEGF gene-transfected BMSCs transplantation would be a better therapy for thin endometrium than BMSCs transplantation alone.
cAMP response element binding (CREB), a cellular transcription factor important to angiogenesis, could be activated by VEGF through phosphorylation of VEGF receptor 2 (Flk-1) tyrosine kinase.
As s-TREM-1, VEGF-B, and VEGF-B gene expressions may have a role in the pathogenesis of BD, we aimed to investigate the association of VEGF-B and VEGF gene expressions and sTREM-1 levels with Behcet's disease activity in this study.
VEGF is produced in large amounts by the glomerular podocyte and guides endothelial cells in the developing kidney.
The Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) family are potent angiogenic and vasculogenic growth factors.
Results: In vitro, VEGF immunohistochemistry stains, HIF-1a and VEGF protein contents, and the relative expressions of HIF-1a mRNA and VEGF mRNA in HIF-1a/siRNA group were obviously reduced.
Endothelial cells leave their quiescent state when stimulated by VEGF and initiate the following steps: basement membrane dissolution, endothelial cell migration and proliferation, capillary tube formation, and the maturation and survival of newly formed vessels.
Here we performed an institution-based study on nephrectomy specimens which were histologically diagnosed as RCC and applied IHC to correlate VEGF and Ki-67 expression with grade and stage of RCC and compare VEGF expression and Ki-67 labelling index, if any and also discussed their possible utility as tissue-based biomarkers.
The aim of this study was to examine the expression of MUC2 and VEGF in patients with proven BE.
Bevacizumab (Avastin, Genetech/Roche, USA), a monoclonal antibody against VEGF which is used off-label to treat various eye diseases, was added to the cultures at a concentration of 0.3125 mg/mL.
