Cytokines and Growth Factors. Early Gene Expression During Angiogenic Stimuli
From accumulating experimental observations, it has become evident that angiogenesis — the sprouting of new blood vessels from other mature vessels — can be induced by a myriad of angiogenic factors1,2. Despite their potential roles in initiating the process, these factors, most probably, influence a single (or a few) events within a very complex cascade of pathways which finally lead to angiogenesis as observed in vivo1.
