  • Recent work using immunopathologic techniques have shown that VEGF is upregulated in both experimentally induced uveitis and in uveitic eyes as well, with no evidence of neovascularization. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • levels
  • It is thought that abnormally high levels of VEGF (or its presence in places where it shouldn't be expressed) cause disease. (blindness.org)
  • Therefore, one would expect salivary VEGF levels to be proportionate to the amount of stomach acid. (drmyhill.co.uk)
  • There is a huge amount of research that has been done with respect to VEGF, most of which is to do with high levels. (drmyhill.co.uk)
  • However, the reverse is also true and low levels of VEGF would be a pointer towards hypochlorhydria. (drmyhill.co.uk)

  • genes
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), heme oxygenase 1 (HMOX1), basic helix-loop-helix domain containing, class B, 2 (BHLHB2), p21cip1 and DDIT4 - these transcripts were also upregulated - are known to be direct target genes [47,52, (nih.gov)
  • Most embryos that carry knockouts for vasculogenesis genes (VEGF, VEGFR2) die in utero before analysis can occur. (ufl.edu)
  • The gene encodes for a transcription factor that belongs to the Hairy/Enhancer of Split (Hes) subfamily of basic helix-loop-helix factor genes which encode transcriptional repressors that function as downstream targets to regulate cell fate during tissue development. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mechanotransduction of these physical cues to endothelial and smooth muscle cells in the vascular wall can also trigger the promotion or repression of certain genes which are responsible for vasodilation, cell alignment, and other shear stress-mitigating factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • upregulation
  • Upregulation of PHACTR1 by transforming growth factor (TGF)-β has been described in breast cancer cell lines, potentially pointing to a connection with the TGF-β signaling pathway, which is also implicated in genetic predisposition to migraine9 and has a key role in Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, two inherited connective tissue disorders causing aortic dissection. (wikipedia.org)
  • metastasis

  • epithelial
  • These complexes, which help regulate cell growth in addition to creating and maintaining epithelial layers, are known as adherens junctions and they typically include at least cadherin, β-catenin, and α-catenin. (wikipedia.org)
  • maturation
  • VEGF-C is a dimeric, secreted protein, which undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation resulting in multiple processed forms. (wikipedia.org)

  • increases
  • The study of vascular or remodelling in the embryo is widely believed to have been pioneered by Thoma in 1893 when he observed that increases in local blood flow cause widening of the vessel diameter, even going so far as to postulate that blood flow might be responsible for the growth and development of blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
