Introduction

PLGF is a growth factor active in angiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration. It binds to receptor vegfr-1/flt1.
PLGF-2 binds neuropilin-1 and 2 in a dependent manner.

Description

Placenta Growth Factor-2 Human Recombinant produced in insect cells is a homodimer, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 2 x 152 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 44 kDa.
The PLGF-2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Insect Cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing BSA.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Placenta Growth Factor 2 in sterile 20mM acetic acid not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Placenta Growth Factor-2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PLGF2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 80.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

PlGF-2 human Recombinant can bind to immobilized rh-sFlt-1 (100ng/well) with a linear range at 0.3–10ng/ml.
