We studied the effect of VEGF-A in experimental myocardial infarction on attraction of progenitor cells into the regeneration zone. The appearance of CD34(+)CD45(+) cells known as low-differentiated progenitor cells was observed in the damaged myocardial tissue in the presence of a considerable excess of VEGF-A. These cells can act as precursors of mesenchymal tissues depending on the direction of differentiation.
