A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Peribronchial angiogenesis may occur in cystic fibrosis and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A regulates angiogenesis in airways. Peribronchial vascularity and VEGF-A expression were examined using immunocytochemistry and morphometric analysis in lung sections obtained in 10 cystic fibrosis patients at transplantation versus 10 control nonsmokers, and in two strains of Cftr-deficient mice versus wild-type littermates. Airway epithelial NCI-H292 cells and primary cultures of noncystic fibrosis human airway epithelial cells were treated with cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) inhibitors (CFTR-inh(172) or PPQ-102) or transfected with a CFTR small interfering (si)RNA with or without a selective epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Concentrations of VEGF-A and phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor were measured by ELISA. Peribronchial vascularity was increased in cystic fibrosis patients, but not in Cftr-deficient mice. VEGF-A immunostaining was localised to airway epithelium and was increased in cystic fibrosis patients and in Cftr-deficient mice. In cultured airway epithelial cells, treatment with CFTR inhibitors or transfection with CFTR siRNA induced a twofold increase in VEGF-A production. CFTR inhibitors triggered epidermal growth factor receptor phosphorylation that was required for VEGF-A synthesis. Cystic fibrosis airways at transplantation showed increased peribronchial vascularity and epithelial VEGF-A expression. CFTR dysfunction triggered epithelial synthesis of VEGF-A, which may contribute to vascular remodelling.
