Example text

This is evident as disruption of either the emerging distal air sacs composed of alveolar clefts or vasculature results in an alteration in the normal morphogenesis of the other. In contrast to embryonic and early pseudoglandular stages, where the vasculature and branching airways are separated by several cell layers, the later pseudoglandular and canalicular stages are characterized by thinning of the mesenchyme and increasing proximity of the lung epithelial and ECs. The close proximity of the two cell types is critical for the facilitation of oxygen exchange across the epithelial/endothelial interface during later development.

Ihida-Stansbury et al. suggest that not only is Prx1 required for tenascin-C expression, but that tenascin-C is required for Prx1 -dependent differentiation of fetal pulmonary EC precursors and vascular network formation [146, 147]. Together, these studies demonstrate that ECM molecules are important mediators of vessel formation in the developing lung. ANTIANGIOGENIC FACTORS In contrast to the positive role of many growth factors on vascular development, negative/inhibitory vascular factors provide a counterbalance to vessel formation during lung development.

The larger forms of VEGF (VEGF164, 188, and 205 in mouse) possess a motif that tethers them to various ECM components and thus decreases their diffusibility. The smallest isoform of VEGF lacks this domain and can freely diffuse. This form has been shown to drive chemotaxis of migrating angioblasts [39]. Gene targeting of these different isoforms results in a range of vascular defects [87]. Therefore, it seems likely the coordination of different isoforms is critical for the generation of a continuous and functional embryonic vasculature.
