Rabbit Anti-Rat VEGF-C
Slide this table
|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.
|Produced from sera of rabbits immunized with highly pure recombinant rat dNdC-VEGF-C. Anti-rat VEGF-C IgG was purified by affinity chromatography with immobilized Protein A.
|Recombinant rat VEGF-C (RT #R20-015)
|vascular endothelial growth factor C; Vegfc
|VEGF-C, a member of the VEGF/PDGF family of structurally related proteins, is a potent angiogenic cytokine. It promotes endothelial cell growth, promotes lymphangiogesis, and can also affect vascular permeability. VEGF-C is expressed in various tissues, but is not produced in peripheral blood lymphocytes. It forms cell surfaced-associated non-covalent disulfide linked homodimers, and can bind and activate both VEGFR-2 (flk1) and VEGFR-3 (flt4) receptors. During embryogenesis, VEGF-C may play a role in the formation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems. Both VEGF-C and VEGF-D are over-expressed in certain cancers, and the resulting elevated levels of VEGF-C or VEGF-D tend to correlate with increased lymphatic metastasis. Recombinant, fully processed rat VEGF-C is a 16-18 kDa non-disulfide linked homodimeric protein consisting of two 116 amino acid polypeptide chains. Due to glycosylation the protein migrates as a 20.0-22.0 kDa band under non-reducing condition.
