Purity Immunogen affinity purified
Purification notes The antibody was affinity purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity chromatography using epitope specific immunogen.
Abpromise guarantee covers the use of
in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 22 kDa).
Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Detection at 0.5µg/ml with
Ab76863 as Capture.
Function Growth factor for endothelial cells. VEGF-B167 binds heparin and neuropilin-1 whereas the binding to neuropilin-1 of VEGF-B186 is regulated by proteolysis.
Tissue specificity Expressed in all tissues except liver. Highest levels found in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas.
Sequence similarities Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
Post-translational modifications VEGF-B186 is O-glycosylated.
Cellular localization Secreted. Secreted but remains associated to cells or to the extracellular matrix unless released by heparin.
Information by UniProt
Form There are 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing.
