|Description||VEGF is a potent growth and angiogenic cytokine. It stimulates proliferation and survival of endothellial 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 rat VEGF is a 38.5 kDa disulfide-linked homodimeric protein consisting of two 165 amino acid polypeptide chains.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). The expected ED50 is 4.0-8.0 ng/ml.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Rat VEGF is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
