Growth factors generally play a crucial role in angiogenesis, and contribute to tumor growth into normal tissue. Many of them such as EGF and HGF are potent mitogens. EGF and PDGF attract and induce various kinds of cells involved in wound healing processes. VEGF-A is one of the best characterized and most powerful stimulators of angiogenesis, is highly increased in serum and synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis patients, and also influences the pathogenesis of psoriasis. More growth factor products such as ELISAs and Module Sets/Matched Antibody Pairs are also available! Please inquire for mouse and rat products!
