Human endocrine gland derived vascular endothelial growth factor (EG-VEGF) is selectively expressed in steroidogenic glands and promotes growth of endocrine gland endothelium. The identification of tissue-selective angiogenic factors raises the possibility that other secreted molecules in this class exist. Consistent with such an expression pattern, the human EG-VEGF gene promoter has a potential binding site for steroidogenic factor (SF)-1, a pivotal element for steroidogenic-specific transcription. In the human ovary, the expression of EG-VEGF is temporally and spatially complementary to the expression of VEGF-A, both in the follicular and in the luteal phase, suggesting complementary and coordinated roles of these molecules in ovarian angiogenesis. Also, EG-VEGF expression correlates with vascularity in the polycystic ovary syndrome, a leading cause of infertility.
