Furthermore, in some cases, VEGFR-1 is expressed by tumor cells and may mediate a chemotactic signal, thus potentially extending the role of this receptor (100). In this context, it is noteworthy that Bates et al. (101) reported that the epithelial–mesenchymal transformation of colonic organoids results in the increased expression of both VEGF and VEGFR-1, and that the survival of these cells depends on a VEGF=VEGFR-1 autocrine pathway. 2 VEGFR-2 (KDR, HUMAN; FLK-1, MOUSE) VEGFR-2 binds VEGF-A with lower affinity than VEGFR-1 (Kd 75–250 pM versus 25 pM) (102–104).
