Technical Data
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor, Vascular Permeability Factor, VEGFA, VPF)
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) is a homodimeric, disulfide-linked glycoprotein involved in angiogenesis which promotes tumor progression and metastasis. It exhibits potent mitogenic and permeablility inducing properties specific for the vascular endothelium. Multiple isoforms of VEGF containing 206-, 189-, 165-, and 121-amino acid residues have been described which arise from alternative splicing of a single gene. The smaller two isoforms, VEGF165 and VEGF121, are secreted proteins and act as diffusible agents, whereas the larger two remain cell-associated. VEGF/VPF plays an important role in angiogenesis, which promotes tumor progression and metastasis.

Suitable for use in Neutralization of the bioactivity of human VEGF. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Neutralization: Azide removal is required prior to use.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
