AbstractVascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mediator family and their receptors are involved in co-ordinated regulation of angiogenesis and neurogenesis after stroke 1. We have recently shown that placenta-derived growth factor (PlGF), a ligand for both VEGFR1 and neuropilin-1 (NP-1), plays a permissive role for VEGF- and astrocyte-induced angiogenic responses of human brain endothelial cells (BEC) 2. The role of PlGF in hypoxia-induced angiogenesis remains unclear.
