Abstract

VEGF is a canonical angiogenic factor. In addition, its role as a stimulator of neurogenesis was recently uncovered. Vascular and nervous networks share common molecular mechanisms underlying their morphogenesis. VEGF is likely to regulate both processes during development and in adult organisms.
