The main member of the VEGF family of growth factors is VEGF-A. Exon splicing of the human 16 CH1 ENDOTHELIAL CELL BIOLOGY VEGF-A gene results in seven isoforms that have different properties. The three major isoforms, named after their molecular size, are VEGF121, VEGF165 and VEGF189. The VEGF family also includes VEGF-B, VEGF-C, VEGF-D and placental growth factor (PlGF). VEGF-B is an angiogenic protein related to VEGF-A, although it acts on a different set of tyrosine kinase receptors. VEGF-C and VEGFD have been shown to act as lymphangiogenic growth factors.

1999). , 2000; Shubik and Warren, 2000) because evidence that these patterned networks contributed to tumour blood flow appeared to be lacking. Nowadays several research groups are seeking the molecular mechanisms behind vasculogenic mimicry and proof of its contribution to blood flow. Endothelial cells also contribute to the formation of lymph vessels. , 2005; Alitalo and Carmeliet, 2002). It is hypothesized that venous endothelial cells become responsive to lymphatic signals, differentiate and make lymphatic sprouts.

BFGF signalling occurs through four high affinity tyrosine kinase transmembrane receptors (FGFR1-4). It is produced by many cells, including macrophages and tumour cells, and subsequently secreted into the extracellular matrix. At the start of angiogenesis, it can be released from the matrix. bFGF expression can be downregulated by interferon-a and -b. There is an intricate interaction with other growth factors, such as VEGF, that results in a synergistic action in many endothelial cell functions.
