The original member of the family of endothelial cell growth factors referred to as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A was originally isolated from tumor cells and referred to as "tumor angiogenesis factor" and "vascular permeability factor".

Alternative splicing of the mRNA for vascular endothelial growth factor A results in several isoforms of the protein being produced.
