Oncogenes, Anti-Oncogenes, and Genetic Regulators of Vascular Development

Part of the Cardiovascular Molecular Morphogenesis book series (CARDMM)


The architecture of all tissue represents the cumulative actions of many genes. Similarly, the phenotype of tumors is the product of successive genetic lesions that alter the function and regulation of oncogenes, tumor-suppressors, and modifier genes. A key stage of both tissue development and tumor progression is the recruitment of a vascular network.
