  • Mediators known to activate ECs include inflammatory cytokines, growth factors such as VEGF/VPF and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins such as collagen and fibronectin, and proteases such as MMPs [ 1 2 ] . In vitro and in vivo assays indicate that VEGF signaling promotes increased permeability, cell migration, proliferation, and differentiation, functioning through two EC-specific tyrosine kinase receptor such as Kinase domain receptor (KDR) [ 1 2 3 ] . In the majority of solid tumors, VEGF is upregulated in response to hypoxia, inducing the expression of pro-angiogenic genes that promote tumor angiogenesis, growth and eventual metastasis [ 3 4 5 ] . The expression of both positive and negative factors must be tightly and specifically regulated in a coordinated manner.

  • In the present study, the effect of MTX on membrane permeability occurred in three distinct phases.

  • VEGF-A also increases vascular permeability, with an effect 10,000 times more potent than that of the vasoactive substance histamine; VEGF-A was originally purified based on this property, and was named vascular permeability factor [ 3].

  • Using flow cytometry to measure membrane permeability and DNA content of cells, BCR stimulation resulted in a 5-fold increase (6.
