VEGF165 (vascular endothelial growth factor 165), also known as VEGF-A, is a homodimeric glycoprotein and is expressed as multiple splice variants. Recombinant rat VEGF is a double, non-glycosylated, polypeptide containing 164 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 38.4kDa.
VEGF165 (vascular endothelial growth factor 165) has been used to study the effects of VEGF on the morphology and survival of neurons and glial cells.
VEGF165 (vascular endothelial growth factor 165) has been shown to have pro-angiogenic properties. It has a role in the proliferation of endothelial cells and neuroprotection.
Lyophilized from a sterile (0.2 micron) filtered aqueous solution containing 10 mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.5
Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. The solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
