VEGFC / VEGF-C Protein Description
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-C is a member of the VEGF family, a group of polypeptide growth factors which play key roles in the physiology and pathology of many aspects of the cardiovascular system, including vasculogenesis, hematopoiesis, angiogenesis and vascular permeability. While VEGFC is homologous to other members of the VEGF/PDGF family, it contains the C-terminal propeptide which has an unusual structure with tandemly repeated cysteine-rich motifs. Upon biosynthesis, VEGFC is secreted as a non-covalent momodimer in an anti-parellel fashion. VEGF signalling in endothelial cells occurs through three tyrosine kinase receptors (VEGFRs) expressed by endothelial cells and hematopoietic precursors, and VEGF-C is a ligand for two receptors, VEGFR-3 (Flt4), and VEGFR-2. It is indicated that VEGFC undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation generating a variety of processed secreted forms with increased activity toward VEGFR-3, but only the fully processed form could activate VEGFR-2. VEGFC may function in angiogenesis of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults.
