Abstract: The hybridization pattern of VEGF and KDR mRNA in the ganglion cell layer strongly suggests that the ganglion cells are the major source of this growth factor. The decrease of VEGF mRNA, KDR/Flk mRNA and VEGF protein levels after ischemia and recovery after reperfusion suggest that transient hypoxia might mediate short-term down-regulation of VEGF and KDR mRNA.
