def: "A series of molecular signals initiated by the binding of a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) to a receptor on the surface of the target cell, and ending with regulation of a downstream cellular process, e.g. transcription." [GOC:signaling, PMID:17470632]
comment: In GO, a gene product with 'vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity ; GO:0005021' necessarily binds VEGF to transduce a signal. To represent cross-talk between ligands and receptors, signaling pathways in GO are starting to be named after the receptor and/or the signal. GO:0038084 is for annotation of any pathway in which the ligand VEGF binds and activates any cell surface receptor (VEGFR, PDGFR etc.). For annotation of signaling pathways where a VEGFR binds one of its physiological ligands (VEGF or an alternative growth factor), consider 'vascular endothelial growth factor receptor signaling pathway ; GO:0048010'.
