Mouse VEGF Quantikine ELISA Kit, 2 Plate Summary

The Quantikine Mouse VEGF Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse VEGF in cell culture supernates, tissue homogenates, mouse serum, and plasma. It contains Sf 21-expressed mouse VEGF and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant mouse VEGF accurately. Results obtained using natural mo...use VEGF showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse VEGF.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF or VEGF-A), also known as vascular permeability factor (VPF), is a potent mediator of both angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in the fetus and in adults (1-3). It is a member of the PDGF family that is characterized by the presence of eight conserved cysteine residues in a cystine knot structure and the formation of anti-parallel disulfide-linked dimers (4). Alternately spliced isoforms of 120, 164 and 188 amino acids (aa) have been found in mice, while 121, 145, 165, 183, 189, and 206 aa isoforms have been identified in humans (2, 4). In humans, VEGF165 appears to be the most abundant and potent isoform, followed by VEGF121 and VEGF189 (3, 4). The same pattern may exist in mice. Isoforms other than VEGF120 and VEGF121 contain basic heparin-binding regions and are not freely diffusible (4). Mouse VEGF164 shares 97% aa sequence identity with corresponding regions of rat VEGF. It also shares 89% aa sequence identity with human and porcine VEGF, 88% with bovine VEGF, and 90% with feline, equine, and canine VEGF. VEGF is expressed in multiple cells and tissues including skeletal and cardiac muscle (5, 6), hepatocytes (7), osteoblasts (8), neutrophils (9), macrophages (10), keratinocytes (11), brown adipose tissue (12), CD34+ stem cells (13), endothelial cells (14), fibroblasts, and vascular smooth muscle cells (15). VEGF expression is induced by hypoxia and cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, Oncostatin M, and TNF-alpha (3, 4, 9, 16). The isoforms are differentially expressed during development and in the adult (3). 
VEGF dimers bind to two related receptor tyrosine kinases, VEGF R1 (also called Flt-1) and VEGF R2 (Flk-1/KDR), and induce their homodimerization and autophosphorylation (3, 4, 7, 17, 18). These receptors have seven extracellular immunoglobulin-like domains and an intracellular split tyrosine kinase domain. They are expressed on vascular endothelial cells and a range of non-endothelial cells. Although VEGF affinity is highest for binding to VEGF R1, VEGF R2 appears to be the primary mediator of VEGF angiogenic activity (3, 4). VEGF165 also binds the semaphorin receptor, neuropilin-1, which promotes complex formation with VEGF R2 (19). 
VEGF is best known for its role in vasculogenesis. During embryogenesis, VEGF regulates the proliferation, migration, and survival of endothelial cells (3, 4), thus regulating blood vessel density and size but playing no role in determining vascular patterns. VEGF promotes bone formation through osteoblast and chondroblast recruitment and is also a monocyte chemoattractant (20-22). In postnatal life, VEGF maintains endothelial cell integrity and is a potent mitogen for micro- and macro-vascular endothelial cells. In adults, VEGF functions mainly in wound healing and the female reproductive cycle (3). In diseased tissues, VEGF promotes vascular permeability. It is thus thought to contribute to tumor metastasis by promoting both extravasation and tumor angiogenesis (23, 24). Various strategies have been employed therapeutically to antagonize VEGF-mediated tumor angiogenesis (25). Circulating VEGF levels correlate with disease activity in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and systemic lupus erythematosus (26).

FAQs for VEGF (MMV00). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. Why is the molecular weight of VEGF different from the similar antibody, for some companies the the molecular weight is 40KD)?
    • I can't comment on another company's antibody because I don't have any information about their products. I can tell you that VEGF is expressed in a variety of isoforms and is subject to various post-translational modifications that influence its apparent molecular weight in an SDS-PAGE gel compared to the theoretical molecular weight.
  2. wondering what the difference is between your quantikine and duo set elisas?
    • Usually the duosets do not have the entire kit such as plates and buffers, whereas the other kits are complete.
