  • Function
    Growth factor active in angiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in angiogenesis 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
    Spleen, lymph node, thymus, appendix, bone marrow, heart, placenta, ovary, skeletal muscle, prostate, testis, colon and small intestine and fetal liver, lung and kidney, but not in peripheral blood lymphocyte.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Post-translational
    Undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation which generates a variety of processed secreted forms with increased activity toward VEGFR-3, but only the fully processed form could activate VEGFR-2. VEGF-C first form an antiparallel homodimer linked by disulfide bonds. Before secretion, a cleavage occurs between Arg-227 and Ser-228 producing an heterotetramer. The next extracellular step of the processing removes the N-terminal propeptide. Finally the mature VEGF-C is composed mostly of two VEGF homology domains (VHDs) bound by non-covalent interactions.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of HepG2 cells labelling VEGFC with ab135506 (green). The cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 90% methanol for 10 min. Samples were blocked with 2% BSA followed by incubation with the antibody at a dilution of 1/25 for 60 min at 37°C. A DyLight®-488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody at 1/200 dilution for 40 min at 37°C. As an isotype control (blue) rabbit IgG1 (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >10, 000 events was performed.
