Background: VEGF

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF or VEGF-A), also known as Vascular Permeability Factor (VPF), is a potent mediator of both angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in the fetus and adult (1-3). It is a member of the PDGF family that is characterized by the presence of eight conserved cysteine residues and a cystine knot structure (4). Two families of VEGF isoforms are produced through alternative splicing: VEGF xxx (pro-angiogenic) and VEGF xxxb (anti-angiogenic) families that differ by only six amino-acids at the C-terminal end. The B isoform ends with SLTRKD instead of CDKPRR (5). The first verified and widely reported VEGF xxxb family member is VEGF 165b (6). VEGF 111b is a newly discovered member that is induced by UV-B irradiation or by mitomycin C. It doesn't express in normal conditions and has a remarkable resistance to proteolysis (6). Human VEGF 111b shares 87% aa sequence identity with corresponding regions of mouse and rat VEGF. VEGF 111b contains binding domains for VEGF R1 and VEGF R2, however it lacks binding sites for NRP-1 and heparin and cleavage sites for plasmin and matrix metalloproteinases (7, 8). VEGF 111b has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of HUVECs and ovarian cancer cells as well as migration and tube formation of HUVECs (6-7). It has been demonstrated that VEGF 111b functions through VEGF R2 to inhibit the downstream PI3K, Akt, and ERK1/2 signaling pathways (6, 7).
