VEGF is produced by endothelial cells, macrophages, activated T cells, and a variety of other cell types (Ferrera & Davis-Smyth, 1997) and is of great importance for microcirculatory system of dental pulp. The expression of VEGF and its receptors has been identified in pulp using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method (Matsushita et al., 2000; Grando Mattuella et al., 2007) as well as immunohistochemical identification (Guven et al., 2007).
