Figure 13

Effect of VEGF on NFAT, p65 subunit of NFκB, c-fos and c-Jun in HIMEC. Immunofluorescence staining was used to visualize nuclear translocation following VEGF induced activation of NFAT, and the p65 subunit of NFκB and AP-1 component (c-fos and c-Jun) of HIMEC. In unstimulated HIMEC, NFATp was detected in cytoplasm, and following VEGF activation was translocated to the nucleus, whereas TNF-α/LPS activation of HIMEC did not result in nuclear NFAT translocation. CsA pre-treatment resulted in abrogation of the NFATp nuclear translocation following VEGF stimulation.
