VEGF increased the level of ETS1 mRNA in human umbifical vein endothelial cells and lung microvascular endothelial cells over 5-fold.
Protein levels were shown to increase concordantly.
VEGF stands for the vascular Endothelial Growth Factor family of ligands and receptors is crucial for vascular development and neovascularization in physiological and pathological processes in both embryos, and in adults
VEGFs belong to a family of homodimeric glycoproteins that containts five members (VEGF-A, B, C, D, and Placenta growth factor PLGF).
VEGFs bind to 3 different VEGF-receptor tyrosine kinases (VEGFR-1, 2, 3).
Upon ligation, VEGF-receptors dimerize, autophosphorylate and, thereby transduce signals that direct cellular functions.

Keratin-14, 18, 19, Vimentin are putative direct HIF1 target genes
Genes induced by HIF-1 in cancer cells include KRT-14, 18, 19, Vimentin, VEGF
HIF1 target genes include TGFB3, VEGF
VEGF is induced by hypoxia in a HIF1-dependent way
Prokinecticin 1 (EG-VEGF) is induced by hypoxia through a potential HIF1-dependent mechanism indicates that this gene is in the same homeostatic cascade as VEGF, Flt1 and erythropoietinPMID:17987801 PMID:16716598
