The field of genetics is rapidly evolving, and new medical breakthroughs are occurring as a result of advances in our knowledge of genetics. This series continually publishes important reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines.
This thematic volume reviews the latest research findings in the area of vascular proteomics related to the receptors of the vascular endothelium, and expands insights into diseases that exhibit distinct vascular characteristics, including cancer, obesity, and inflammation.

Key Features

* Provides contrasting roles of VEGF, giving researchers a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of VEGF
*Includes chapters that review research employing a variety of organisms, allowing researchers to compare and contrast
*Focuses on material that translates basic research to real-life treatment applications, showing primary researchers how the basic science is being used in the clinical setting





Molecular geneticists, clinical geneticists, neurologists, neuroscientists, molecular biologists, and biochemists.
