  • FunctionReceptor for VEGFC. Has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity.
  • Tissue specificityPlacenta, lung, heart, and kidney, does not seem to be expressed in pancreas and brain.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in FLT4 are the cause of lymphedema hereditary type 1A (LMPH1A) [MIM:153100]; also known as Nonne-Milroy lymphedema or Milroy disease. Hereditary lymphedema is a chronic disabling condition which results in swelling of the extremities due to altered lymphatic flow. Patients with lymphedema suffer from recurrent local infections and physical impairment.
    Note=Defects in FLT4 are found in juvenile hemangioma. Juvenile hemangiomas are the most common tumors of infancy, occurring as many as 10% of all births. These benign vascular lesions enlarge rapidly during the first year of life by hyperplasia of endothelial cells and attendant pericytes, and then spontaneously involute over a period of years, leaving loose fibrofatty tissue.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. CSF-1/PDGF receptor subfamily.
    Contains 7 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

  • ab51496 at 1/200 dilution staining VEGF Receptor 3 in human placenta tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections).

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab51496 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab51496, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

    Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
