VEGF is a potent growth and angiogenic cytokine. It stimulates proliferation and survival of endothelial cells, and promotes angiogenesis and vascular permeability. Expressed in vascularized tissues, VEGF plays a prominent role in normal and pathological angiogenesis. Substantial evidence implicates VEGF in the induction of tumor metastasis and intra-ocular neovascular syndromes. VEGF signals through the three receptors; fms-like tyrosine kinase (flt-1), KDR gene product (the murine homolog of KDR is the flk-1 gene product) and the flt4 gene product. Recombinant murine VEGF is a 39.0kD disulfide-linked homodimeric protein consisting of two 165 amino acid polypeptide chains.

Biological Activity: Determined by the dose-dependent
stimulation of the proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC)
using a concentration range of 1.0-5.0ng/ml.
