    ..We concluded that VEGF 120, VEGF 164, bFGF, and EGF may be greatly involved in the angiogenic process of follicular development in prepubertal gilts with eCG treatment. ..

    ..0001, r(2) = 0.591). This is the first study to elucidate the correlation between expression of vasohibin in the stromal endothelial cells and that of VEGFR-2 in human carcinomas. ..

    ..In addition, DAT-/- mice had less D(1)R. Both pharmacological and genetic interruption of D(1)R showed inhibited tumor growth. These results suggest that modulation of the dopaminergic system may contribute to cancer therapy. ..

    ..Our findings may offer an innovative technique for enhanced induction of follicular development in the ovary through gene and hormonal treatment, which may lead to prevention of infertility caused by ovarian dysfunction. ..
