We undertook this study to immunolocalize in quail vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) in the ileocecal region, which is a significant entry point for intestinal immunity. Diffuse cytoplasmic reaction for FGF-2 and VEGF was observed in the epithelial cells of the distal ileum and proximal cecal mucosa. VEGF immunoreactive cells, which give strong intracytoplasmic immunoreaction, were observed in the lamina propria of both intestinal parts. FGF-2 immunoreactive cells were seen in the lamina propria and germinative centers of lymph follicles in the cecum mucosa. Expressions of FGF-2 and VEGF in healthy quail intestines indicate that these factors have physiological roles in quail.
