VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) is a secreted homodimeric protein, secreted by a variety of vascularized tissues. VEGF stimulates endothelial cell growth, angiogenesis, and capillary permeability. Human VEGF is a 38.2 kDa homodimeric protein consisting of two 165 amino acid polypeptide chains.
This antibody reacts with:
E. coli expressed recombinant human VEGF
Formulation of this antibody:
30 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-human VEGF polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Neutralization, and Immunohistochemistry
Western blot analysis (0.5-1 µg/ml). Based on researcher’s feedback, it can also be used in Elisa (2-3 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (5 µg/ml) and Neutralization (5-10 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
