Abstract:Objective  To study the expression and location of VEGF and VEGFR2 in the testis of experimental left varicocele rats and explore the relative function of VEGF and VEGFR2. Methods   Experimental left varicocele models of SD rats were obtained by partial ligation of the left renal vein, The testis were collected at 2- and 4-week after the operation.The VEGF and VEGFR2 expression changes were observed by immunohistochemistry.Results  Immunohistochemistry results showed notable increasing of VEGF protein expression in ELV 2-week and 4-week groups compared with that of corresponding control groups; VEGF expression of testis in ELV groups occurred no changed;The results showed notable increasing of VEGFR2 protein expression in ELV 2-week groups compared with that of corresponding control groups,while VEGFR2 protein expression in ELV 4-week groups testis occurred remarkable increased compared with control groups and ELV 2-week groups. Conclusion   Experimental left varicocele affect the expression of VEGF and VEGFR2, which indicates that they may play an important role in male infertility.
