    Can I edit the sentence as this? Conversely, despite an increase in mRNA endoding

    Can I edit the sentence below
    Conversely, despite an increase in mRNA encoding vascular endothelial growth factor upon MCT-1 overexpressing, vascular endothelial growth factor protein levels have been notably altered.
    as the following:
    Conversely, despite an increase in mRNA encoding vascular endothelial growth factor upon MCT-1 overexpressing, VEGF protein levels have been notably altered.
    or as this:
    Conversely, despite an increase in mRNA encoding vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) upon MCT-1 overexpressing, VEGF protein levels have been notably altered.

    Maybe you should first translate it into English! (gee, what a headache ).

    PS: I believe it's "protein".

    Re: Can I edit the sentence as this? Conversely, despite an increase in mRNA endodin

    I suggest that the first editing might be with the word 'endoding'. The original, here, has 'encoding'. You have also left out a rather important 'not' and turned 'overexpression' into 'overexpressing'. Perhaps you'd better stick with the original.
