General description

SILu Prot VEGF165 is a recombinant, stable isotope-labeled human VEGF165 which incorporates [13C6,15N4]−Arginine and [13C6, 15N2]−Lysine. Expressed in human 293 cells, it is designed to be used as an internal standard for bioanalysis of VEGF165 by mass-spectrometry.

(MRM settings provided for three suggested peptides)

Biochem/physiol Actions

VEGF165 belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family characterized by the presence of eight conserved cysteine residues and a cystine knot structure1. VEGF is secreted by the majority of tumor cells and initiates angiogenesis by activating endothelial cells of existing blood vessels and promoting their migration2.
VEGF has also been implicated in correlation with poor prognosis in breast cancer2. In addition, VEGF is released in rheumatoid arthritis in response to TNF-α, increasing endothelial permeability and stimulating angiogenesis (formation of capillaries)3,4.



Physical form

Supplied as a lyophilized powder containing phosphate buffered saline
