|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_002623, 5228|
|Calculated MW||24789 Da|
|Other Names||Placenta growth factor, PlGF, PGF, PGFL, PLGF|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-PLGF Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Growth factor active in angiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration. It binds to the receptor FLT1/VEGFR-1. Isoform PlGF-2 binds NRP1/neuropilin-1 and NRP2/neuropilin-2 in a heparin-dependent manner. Also promotes cell tumor growth.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted. Note=The three isoforms are secreted but PlGF-2 appears to remain cell attached unless released by heparin|
|Tissue Location||While the three isoforms are present in most placental tissues, PlGF-2 is specific to early (8 week) placenta and only PlGF-1 is found in the colon and mammary carcinomas|
