VEGF Partial Recombinant Protein Summary
A partial protein corresponding to VEGFA.
E. coli expressed amino acids ala 27-arg 147 of mature human VEGF121 (accession # AF214570).
|Details of Functionality
Measured by human umbilical vein endothelial cell proliferation assay. The ED50 is typically 10.0 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1.0 x 105 Units/mg.
Less than 0.01 ng/ug cytokine as determined by the LAL assay.
Packaging, Storage & Formulations
Store at -80C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Sterile liquid; 35% (v/v) acetonitrile, 0.1% (v/v) trifluoracetic acid with 1.0% BSA as a stabilizer. 0.22 uM filtered.
0.09% Sodium Azide
This recombinant human VEGF has been tested by bioassay of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). Dose-dependent induction of proliferation of HUVECs yields an ED50 of 10.0 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of approximately 1x10^5Units/mg.
This protein was made to the human sequence.
Purity: Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE
Alternate Names for VEGF Partial Recombinant Protein
- vascular endothelial growth factor A
- Vascular permeability factor
- VPFvascular endothelial growth factor
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), also called vascular permeability factor (VPF), is produced by cultured vascular smooth muscle cells. From analysis of transcripts from these cells by PCR and cDNA cloning, 3 different forms of the VEGF coding region have been identified. These cDNAs had predicted products of 189, 165, and 121 amino acids. VEGF is a mitogen primarily for vascular endothelial cells. It is structurally related to platelet-derived growth factor. VEGF, a homodimeric glycoprotein of relative molecular mass 45,000, is the only mitogen that specifically acts on endothelial cells. The VEGF receptor, Flk1, is exclusively expressed in endothelial cells. VEGF may be a major regulator of tumor angiogenesis in vivo.
