Introduction

VEGF-D belongs to the VEGF/PDGF family of proteins. VEGF-D promotes lymphangiogesis, endothelial cell growth, and regulates vascular permeability. In addition, VEGF-D has an important part in the creation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems and in the growth and maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium Mature VEGF-D forms a noncovalently linked homodimer, and binds to and activate both VEGFR-2 (flk1) and VEGFR-3 (flt4).

Description

VEGFD Human Recombinant produced in HEK-293 cells is a secreted protein (amino acids Phe93-Ser201) fused to a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.

Source

HEK293.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The recombinant VEGF-D was lyophilized after extensive dialysis against PBS.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor D in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized VEGF-D although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution VEGF-D should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

The ED50 of 3-4ng/ml is measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of human microvascular endothelial cells (HMVECs).
