This Embryology category shows content related to Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a secreted protein growth factor family which stimulates the proliferation of vasular endotheial cells and therefore blood vessel growth. VEGF is secreted but remains associated with cells or extracellular matrix. It is released by heparin. VEGF belongs to the platelet derive growth factor (PDGF) family, has four isoforms and are formed by alternative splicing of the same gene.
