Specific cytokines & growth factors in… angiogenesis, endothelial cells

Growth Factors & cytokines

Angiogenesis is the growth process of new blood vessels from pre-existing one’s. It’s a normal physiological process, observed during embryonic development. But it’s also a pathological process, essentially in the growth of malignant tumors and metastasis development.

Angiogenesis is controlled by different activators and inhibitors made by healthy and tumoral cells.

Angiogenetic factors

A large offer of cytokines and growth factors are able to help you in your angiogenesis research.

  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-basic: a member of the fibroblast growth factor family (hum FGF-basic, mur FGF-basic, rat FGF-basic)
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor: a potent growth & angiogenic cytokine ( hum VEGF 121, hum VEGF 165, mur VEGF 165)
  • Epidermal Growth Factor: a growth factor that stmulates cell growth, proliferation and differention by binding to its receptor EGFR (hum EGF, mur EGF, rat EGF)
  • Platelet-derived growth factor: one of the numerous growth factors, or proteins that regulate cell growth and division (hum PDGF-BB, mur PDGF-BB)
  • Stem beads FGF2: a revolutionary growth factor supplement that offers a more efficient way to grow FGF2 dependent stem cell cultures
  • Stem beads EGF: a growth factor that stimulates proliferation of many cell types including stem cells

 Anti-Angiogenetic factors

The growth of angiogenesis is blocked by angiogenesis inhibitors.  Endogenous inhibitors are found in the body naturally and are involved in the day-to-day process of regulating blood vessel formation. Here are some anti-Angiogenetic factors.

 Any doubt about the best factors for your research?
