    ..Taken together, our data suggest that FIH-1 interacts with Mib E3 Ubiquitin ligase and modulates vascular development by attenuating VEGF-A signaling activity. ..

    ..This process fails to take place in Egfl7 knockdown embryos, leading to the failure of vascular tube formation. Our study defines a regulator that controls a specific and important step in vasculogenesis. ..

    ..Thus, our data suggest that a defined hemogenic endothelial population preset by scl-? supports the deterministic emergence of HSCs, and unravel the cellular mechanisms by which scl isoforms regulate HSC development. ..
