Example text

ENDOTHELIAL-SPECIFIC FACTORS In addition to the VEGF and VEGFR family, ECs themselves generate factors that contribute to the regulation of their behaviors during vessel formation. For example, angiopoietin-1 protein is likely to be required for pulmonary vessel integrity and quiescence. High angiopoietin-1 levels in nitrofen-induced hypoplastic lungs were associated with a significant reduction in peripheral capillaries [134]. Further supporting a role for endothelial-selective growth factors in pulmonary vascular development, transgenic mice with an endothelial nitric oxide synthase mutation exhibit capillary hypoperfusion, misaligned pulmonary veins and also display a paucity of distal arteriolar branches [135].

In contrast to VEGF-A 120’s highly diffusible properties, VEGF-A 164 exhibits only moderate diffusion capacity, and is therefore capable of both vessel recruitment and increases in vascular density. The presence of both VEGF-A isoforms 120 and 164 would suggest that during early stages of lung development, vessel formation in the mesenchyme occurs by both vessel recruitment (angiogenesis) and de novo differentiation (vasculogenesis). Taken together these findings suggest that in the mesenchyme VEGF120 expression is stimulating angiogenesis while VEGF164 facilitates simultaneous angiogenesis and vasculogenesis.

Vascular remodeling of this plexus and the establishment of communication with the vasculogenic clusters completes a multilayered pulmonary vascular network. A color version of this figure appears in the plate section of this volume. entire length of the foregut and beyond. 4b). This can be seen in a number of studies VASCULAR GROWTH FACTORS IN LUNG MORPHOGENESIS that describe early lung vasculature [109]. However, importantly, the vasculature at these early stages remains sandwiched within the middle of the mesodermal layer and is not in immediate contact with the underlying endodermal epithelium.
