  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • 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.

    • Western analysis of recombinant human and rat VEGF-C using a polyclonal rabbit anti-rat VEGF-C antibody

    • Western analysis of recombinant rat VEGF-C using a polyclonal rabbit anti-rat VEGF-C antibody

    • Western blot with human and rat VEGF C and VEGF D using the polyclonal anti VEGF C antibody ab9546. Proteins were separated by 15% SDS-PAGE and blotted on to PVDF membranes as described. After transfer, the membrane was incubated for 1 h with ab9546 at 1 µg/ml in TBS containing 20% non-fat milk followed by incubation with a goat-anti-rabbit alkaline phosphatase-conjugated secondary antibody.  Lane 1/250ng rat VEGF C; lane 2/250 ng human VEGF C; lane 3/250 ng rat VEGF D; lane4/250 ng human VEGF-D.

    • Anti-VEGFC antibody (ab9546) + Rat Recombinant VEGF-C insect cells

      Western Blot was run on a 15% SDS-PAGE gel. Bands between 15kDa and 20kDa represent the different glycoslation forms.
    • Western blot with recombinant rat VEGF C fused to His-tag using the polyclonal anti VEGF C antibody ab9546. Bands are between 15kDa and 20kDa represents glycosylation forms. 


    • VEGF-C sandwich-ELISA using ab9546 as capture antibody and recombinant rat VEGF-C as standard. Biotinylated rabbit anti-rat VEGF-C was used for detection.

    Hello! This antibody should be able to detect both the prescursor and mature VEGFC. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The rabbit anti-mouse VEGF-A antibody ab51745 did not cross react with human VEGF-C in Western blotting (reduced, non-reduced). According to our results the rabbit anti-rat VEGF-C ab9546 cross reacts with huma...

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Firstly I would like to confirm that you are referring to ab9546 and not ab9456?

    ab9546 is a rabbit polyclonal and therefore does not have a specific epitope. This antibody contains a combination of imm...

    Thank you for contacting us.

    VEGF-C analysis has not yet been done on human skin with antibody ab9546. However, this antibody is guarenteed to work in humans and in WB and IHC therefore it should be fine to use ab9456 on
