Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesELISA: For capture ELISAs, this product can be used as the capture antibody. Use at a working concentration of 2 µg/ml (100 µl/well) in combination with a biotinylated PlGF polyclonal detection antibody at 100 ng/ml (100 µl/well).
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. The detection limit for recombinant human placental growth factor is approximately 20 ng/lane and 300 ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions, respectively. Homodimeric recombinant PlGF migrates as an approximately 29 kDa protein.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionGrowth 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 specificityWhile 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 similaritiesBelongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
    • DomainIsoform PlGF-2 contains a basic insert which acts as a cell retention signal.
    • Post-translational
    • Cellular localizationSecreted. The three isoforms are secreted but PlGF-2 appears to remain cell attached unless released by heparin.
