VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) is a potent mediator of both angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in the fetus and adult. It is required for regulating the proliferation, migration, and survival of embryonic endothelial cells and during wound healing and the female reproductive cycle in adults. Pathologically, it is involved in tumor development and tumor vascular leakage. VEGF binds to VEGF R1/Flt-1, VEGF R2/Flk-1/KDR, and Neuropilin-1. Multiple forms of VEGF are generated by alternative splicing and proteolysis. In addition to binding to VEGFRs, VEGF binds to receptor complexes consisting of both neuropilins and VEGFRs. This receptor complex has increased VEGF signalling activity in endothelial cells (blood vessels). Neuropilins (NRP) are pleitrophic receptors and therefore other molecules may interfere with the signalling of the NRP/VEGFR receptor complexes. For example, Class 3 semaphorins compete with VEGF165 for NRP binding and could therefore regulate VEGF-mediated angiogensis.
The entire kit may be stored at -20°C for up to 1 year from the date of shipment. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. The kit may be stored at 4°C for up to 6 months. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -80°C.
Rat VEGF ELISA Kit is for Research Use Only.
