Abstract:


VEGF is a canonical angiogenic factor. In addition, its role as a stimulator of neurogenesis was recently uncovered. Vascular and nervous networks share common molecular mechanisms underlying their morphogenesis. VEGF is likely to regulate both processes during development and in adult organisms.

Keywords:

VEGF neural stem cells, VEGF receptor, brain, neurogenesis, angiogenesis, growth factor, endothelial cells
