Protein Name & Synonyms:
Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) (Vascular permeability factor) (VPF)
VEGF is a member of the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family that is often found as a disulfide linked homodimer. It is a glycosylated mitogen that specifically acts on endothelial cells and has various effects, including mediating increased vascular permeability, inducing angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth, promoting cell migration, and inhibiting apoptosis. Elevated levels of this protein is linked to POEMS syndrome, also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome. Mutations in VEGF gene have been associated with proliferative and nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy.
