Description

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor is a signal protein produced by cells that stimulate the formation of blood vessels. Its normal function is to create new blood vessels during embryonic development, new blood vessels after injury, muscle following exercise, and new vessels (collateral circulation) to bypass blocked vessels. However, when VEGF is overexpressed, it can contribute to disease. Overexpression of VEGF can cause vascular disease in the retina of the eye and other parts of the body.
