Recombinant Human VEGF-C (Cys156Ser) Protein Summary

Details of Functionality
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using HMVEC human microvascular endothelial cells. Marconcini, L. et al. (1999) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 96:9671. The ED50 for this effect is 1-5 µg/mL. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized Recombinant Human VEGF R3/Flt‑4 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 349-F4) at 5 µg/mL (100 µL/well) can bind  Recombinant Human VEGF‑C (Cys156Ser) with an apparent Kd <40 nM.

  • VEGF-C
  • VRPFLT4 ligand DHM


Vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C) and VEGF-D constitute a subfamily of the angiogenic VEGF angiogenic factors (1). VEGF-C is synthesized as a 58 kDa molecule that consists of a VEGF homolgy domain (VHD) flanked by N- and C-terminal propeptides. The proprotein undergoes covalent homodimerization and stepwise proteolytic processing to generate ligands with increasing affinity for VEGF R3/Flt-4 (2-4). Fully processed VEGF-C containing just the 21 kDa VHD can additionally bind and activate VEGF R2/KDR/Flk-1 (2, 4). Fully processed human VEGF-C shares 98% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat VEGF-C. VEGF-C interactions with VEGF R3 are critical for lymphangiogenesis (5-8). VEGF-C and VEGF R3 are usually co-expressed at sites with lymphatic vessel sprouting, in the embryo, and in various pathological conditions. Over-expression of VEGF-C in tumor cells induces tumoral lymphatic hyperplasia, resulting in enhanced lymph flow and metastasis to regional lymph nodes (9-12). It also induces physiological and intratumoral neoangiogenesis and vessel sprouting through interactions with VEGF R2 (8, 13, 14).
