Target

  • Function
    Growth factor active in angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth. Induces endothelial cell proliferation, promotes cell migration, inhibits apoptosis and induces permeabilization of blood vessels. Binds to the FLT1/VEGFR1 and KDR/VEGFR2 receptors, heparan sulfate and heparin. NRP1/Neuropilin-1 binds isoforms VEGF-165 and VEGF-145. Isoform VEGF165B binds to KDR but does not activate downstream signaling pathways, does not activate angiogenesis and inhibits tumor growth.
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform VEGF189, isoform VEGF165 and isoform VEGF121 are widely expressed. Isoform VEGF206 and isoform VEGF145 are not widely expressed.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in VEGFA are a cause of susceptibility to microvascular complications of diabetes type 1 (MVCD1) [MIM:603933]. These are pathological conditions that develop in numerous tissues and organs as a consequence of diabetes mellitus. They include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy leading to end-stage renal disease, and diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic retinopathy remains the major cause of new-onset blindness among diabetic adults. It is characterized by vascular permeability and increased tissue ischemia and angiogenesis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. VEGF121 is acidic and freely secreted. VEGF165 is more basic, has heparin-binding properties and, although a signicant proportion remains cell-associated, most is freely secreted. VEGF189 is very basic, it is cell-associated after secretion and is bound avidly by heparin and the extracellular matrix, although it may be released as a soluble form by heparin, heparinase or plasmin.

Images

  • ab52917 staining VEGF in Mouse kidney tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 45 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/400 in 4% BSA + 5% serum in PBST) for 14 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 546-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/300) was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab52917 staining VEGF in NIH3T3 cells. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked in 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1%PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated with ab52917 at 5μg/ml and ab195884, at 1/250 dilution, overnight at +4°C, followed by a further incubation at room temperature for 1h with an Goat anti-Rabbit Alexa Fluor 488 secondary (ab150081) at 2 μg/ml (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

    Secondary
    Rabbit IgG secondary antibody at 1/10000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 27 kDa
    Observed band size : 23 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)


    Exposure time : 10 seconds

    This blot was produced using a 10% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 3% Milk before being incubated with ab52917 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.

  • Overlay histogram showing NIH3T3 cells stained with ab52917 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab52917, 1/1000 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150081) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (ab172730, 0.1μg/1x106 cells used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.

    This antibody gave a positive signal in NIH3T3 cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used at 1/100 dilution.

I can confirm that ab52917 VEGF antibody [EP1176Y] recognizes a region right on the C-term. As far as we are aware, the only isoforms it will not detect are VEGF148 and VEGF165B. it should detect all the others.
