Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab83906 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa).

Target

  • 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.
