Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab125747 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Biological activity
    The ED50 of 3-4ng/ml is measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of Human microvascular endothelial cells (HMVECs).

Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Store at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions.

    Constituent: 99% PBS

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    It is recommended to reconstitute the ab125747 in sterile ultra pure water not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. Upon reconstitution ab125747 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

  • Function
    Growth factor active in angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in the formation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults. Binds and activates VEGFR-2 (KDR/FLK1) and VEGFR-3 (FLT4) receptors.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in lung, heart, small intestine and fetal lung, and at lower levels in skeletal muscle, colon, and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation which generates a variety of processed secreted forms with increased activity toward VEGFR-3 and VEGFR-2. VEGF-D first form an antiparallel homodimer linked by disulfide bonds before secretion. The fully processed VEGF-D is composed mostly of two VEGF homology domains (VHDs) bound by non-covalent interactions.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
  • Information by UniProt

Product Wall

Unfortunately, we have not tested this product's ability to induce phosphorylation of VEGFR2 and so we do not know whether it is capable of doing so.
