Introduction

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), 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 signaling 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 occuring, secreted forms of VEGFR-2 have so far been reported. The binding of VEGF165 to VEGFR-2 is dependent on heparin.

Description

Soluble VEGFR-2 Human Recombinant produced in baculovirus is monomeric, glycosylated, polypeptide having a molecular mass of 116 kDa. The soluble receptor protein contains only the first 7 extracellular domains, which contain all the information necessary for ligand binding.
The sKDR is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Insect Cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

KDR was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) sterile solution containing 25mM MES pH-5.5 and 100mM NaCl.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized VEGFR2 in sterile water not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized VEGFR-2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FLK1 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.
