Slide this table
|Reconstitution||Centrifuge vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml.|
|Stability and Storage||The lyophilized antibody is stable for at least 2 years at -20°C. After sterile reconstitution the antibody is stable at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. Frozen aliquots are stable for at least 6 months when stored at -20°C. Addition of a carrier protein or 50% glycerol is recommended for frozen aliquots.|
|Preparation||The hybridoma was generated after fusion with cells from rat immunized with purified, insect cell-derived recombinant mouse soluble FLT-4 (120 kDa) as the immunizing antigen. Rat IgG1 antibody from hybridomas was purified from cell culture supernatant by Protein G chromatography.|
|Antigen||recombinant mouse soluble FLT-4|
|Synonyms||vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-3; Flt4; Chy; Flt-4; VEGFR3; VEGFR-3|
|Description||VEGFR-3, also known as FLT4, is a member of the Tyr protein kinase family. The extracellular portion of VEGFR-3 contains 7 immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains and the cytoplasmic portion contains a protein kinase domain. FLT4 regulates angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, its ligands are VEGF-C and D and its binding is mediated by the 2nd and 3rd Ig-like domains of FLT4. During fetal development VEGFR-3 is expressed on endothelial cells, however, in the adult mice, the vascular endothelial cells lose VEGFR-3 expression, but the lymphatic endothelium expresses it constitutively. In addition, VEGFR-3 expression can be induced in tumors with active angiogenesis.|
