Researchers at UT Southwestern discover link between gene in rare disorder and growth factor

Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas in collaboration with scientists at the University of Helsinki, Finland, have discovered a previously unknown connection between Lkb1, a tumor-suppressor gene associated with a rare genetic disorder called Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, and vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF), a key regulator of blood vessels.
