Vascular endothelial growth factor is an important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. As its name implies, VEGF activity has been mostly studied on cells of the vascular endothelium, although it does have effects on a number of other cell types (e.g. stimulation monocyte/ macrophagemigration, neurons, cancer cells, kidney epithelial cells ).VEGF mediates increased vascular permeability, induces angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth, promotes cell migration, and inhibits apoptosis. In vitro, VEGF has been shown to stimulate endothelial cell mitogenesis and cell migration. VEGF is also a vasodilator and increases microvascular permeability and was originally referred to as vascular permeability factor.
Elevated levels of this protein are linked to POEMS syndrome, also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome. Mutations in this gene have been associated with proliferative and nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Human Recombinant produced in HEK293 cells is a double, glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 165 amino acids (27-191) and having a molecular mass of 40 kDa. The VEGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µM filtered solution of 20mM PB, 150mM NaCl, pH 7.2.
