Title: Vegf is a major regulator of cardiovascular development

Abstract
Vegf is a major regulator of cardiovascular development. Not only does the Vegf signaling pathway control the growth of new blood vessels (i.e. angiogenesis), but it is also involved in the formation of the heart as well as the specification of arteries. This seminar will outline the roles of Vegf in heart and blood vessel development, with a particular emphasis on the molecular control of this signaling pathway by microRNAs.
