Endothelial cells express three different vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors, belonging to the family of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). They are named VEGFR-1 (Flt-1), VEGFR-2 (KDR/Flk-1), and VEGFR-3 (Flt-4). Their expression is almost exclusively restricted to endothelial cells, but VEGFR-1 can also be found on monocytes. All VEGF-receptors have seven immunoglobulin-like extracellular domains, a single transmembrane region and an intracellular split tyrosine kinase domain. VEGFR-2 has a lower affinity for VEGF than the Flt-1 receptor, but a higher signalling activity. Mitogenic activity in endothelial cells is mainly mediated by VEGFR-2 leading to their proliferation. Differential splicing of the flt-1 gene leads to the formation of a secreted, soluble variant of VEGFR-1 (sVEGFR-1). No naturally occurring, secreted forms of VEGFR-2 have so far been reported. The binding of VEGF165 to VEGFR-2 is dependent on heparin.
Soluble FLT1 Mouse Recombinant fused with the Fc part of human IgG1 produced in baculovirus is disulfide-linked homodimeric , polypeptide containing 965 amino acids. The monomers have a molecular mass of 130 kDa. The soluble receptor protein contains all 7 extracellular domains (Tyr23-Asn757), which contain all the information necessary for high affinity ligand binding.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
FLT1 D1-7 was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) sterile solution containing PBS Buffer.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FLT1 Fc/Chimera in PBS not less than 50µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized FLT-1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution FLT1 should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

The activity of sVEGFR-1/Fc was determined by its ability to inhibit the VEGF-dependent proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells.
