VEGFR

VEGF is one of the key regulators of angiogenesis, vasculogenesis, and developmental hematopoiesis. It is a mitogen and survival factor for vascular endothelial cells while also promoting vascular endothelial cell and monocyte motility[1]. Binding of growth factors to the ectodomain of their transmembrane receptors leads to receptor dimerization, protein kinase activation, trans-autophosphorylation, and initiation of signaling pathways. The VEGF family of receptors (RTK class IV, VEGF receptor family) consists of three protein–tyrosine kinases (VEGFR1, VEGFR2, and VEGFR3) and two non-protein kinase co-receptors (neuropilin-1 and 2)[2]. Targeting VEGF receptors proved to be a successful therapeutic approach for disorders with non-physiologic angiogenesis including age-related macular degeneration of the eye, diabetic retinopathy, rheumatoid arthritis, tumor growth and metastasis1.
