Gene Information

human ... VEGFA(7422)

General description

VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) 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 human VEGF is a 38.2kDa disulfide-linked homodimeric protein consisting of two 165 amino acid polypeptide chains.

Application

VEGF human has been used as a chemoattractant for HUVECs (human umbilical vein endothelial cells) migration assay.

Biochem/physiol Actions

VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) is a potent growth and angiogenic cytokine. It stimulates proliferation and survival of endothelial 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 intraocular neovascular syndromes. Polymorphism in VEGF at C(-634)G is linked with diabetic retinopathy in type 2 diabetes.

Physical form

Lyophilized with no additives.

Reconstitution

Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a stabilizer (example 5% Trehalose) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.

Vascular endothelial cells (ECs) in angiogenesis exhibit inhomogeneous collective migration called "cell mixing", in which cells change their relative positions by overtaking each other. However, how such complex EC dynamics lead to the formation of highly ordered branching structures remains
