  1. 1. Hypoxia, PDGF and VEGF in Vascular Development

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Nilsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Cell biology; hypoxia; VEGF; VEGFR-3; PDGF; endothelial cell; embryonic stem cell; angiogenesis; lymphangiogenesis; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The mechanisms behind many important aspects of blood- and lymphatic vessel formation have yet not been elucidated in detail. The primary objectives of this thesis have therefore been to study the effects of hypoxia, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) on vascular development and function.

  2. 2. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) and Peripheral Nerve Regeneration

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Mariann Sondell; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Schwann cell; SCG; rat; peripheral nerve regeneration; neuropilin-1; nerve repair; mouse; growth factor; flk-1; axonal outgrowth; DRG; VEGF; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its possible role as a neurotrophic factor. I have investigated the effect of VEGF on neurons in culture but also in vivo, following a crush lesion of the sciatic nerve, and following nerve repair. READ MORE

  3. 3. Macrophage expression of VEGF and VEGFR-1. Potential involvement in atherogenesis

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Linda Salomonsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; macrophages; oxLDL; statins; VEGF; VEGFR-1;

    Abstract : The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family is a group of proteins which contributes to both neovascularisation and inflammation. Elevated levels of VEGF have been found in subjects with atherosclerosis and correlate to several cardiovascular risk factors, e.g. hypertension and hyperlipidemia. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Role of Shb in Angiogenesis, FGF and VEGF Signalling in Endothelial Cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kristina Holmqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Shb; Src; FAK; Angiogenesis; VEGFR-2; FGFR-1; Endothelial cells; Spreading; Stress fiber formation; siRNA; VEGF; FGF; Differentiation; Migration; Tube formation; RNAi; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is defined as the formation of new capillary blood vessels from pre-existing ones. This process involves several steps including: migration, proliferation and differentiation of endothelial cells into blood vessels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vascular endothelial growth factor in renal cell carcinoma

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Jan Jacobsen; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; VEGF; isoforms; quantitative RT-PCR; immunohistochemistry; tissue microarray; Western blot; stage; survival; renal cell carcinoma; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Urology and andrology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Urologi och andrologi;

    Abstract : Background. Angiogenesis is essential for tumour growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its isoforms were investigated in relation to the clinical course in a large number of patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).Methods. READ MORE
