Abstract/OtherAbstract:
How arterial and venous fates are established is largely unknown. In the past, circulatory dynamics were thought to be the exclusive cause of arteries and veins being structurally and functionally distinct; however, growing evidence indicates that an orderly progression of molecular signals controls arterial-venous specification in the developing vertebrate vascular system.
