Full VEGF & Angiogenesis Video

This animation demonstrates why Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis (the de novo formation of the embryonic circulatory system) and angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature). The most important member is VEGF-A. Other members are Placenta growth factor (PlGF), VEGF-B, VEGF-C and VEGF-D. The latter ones were discovered later than VEGF-A, and before their discovery VEGF-A was called just VEGF.
