Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab95428 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Applications

    Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-PLGF antibody (ab83906)

  • Purity
    70 - 90% by HPLC.

  • Form
    Liquid
  • Additional notes

    - First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
    - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
    - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
    - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
    - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

  • Function
    Growth factor active in angiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration. It binds to the receptor FLT1/VEGFR-1. Isoform PlGF-2 binds NRP1/neuropilin-1 and NRP2/neuropilin-2 in a heparin-dependent manner.
  • Tissue specificity
    While the three isoforms are present in most placental tissues, PlGF-2 is specific to early (8 week) placenta and only PlGF-1 is found in the colon and mammary carcinomas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Domain
    Isoform PlGF-2 contains a basic insert which acts as a cell retention signal.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. The three isoforms are secreted but PlGF-2 appears to remain cell attached unless released by heparin.
  • Information by UniProt
