Description
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor -C 152 Rat Recombinant contains 152 amino acids residues and was fused to a His-tag (6x His) at the C-terminal end. As a result of glycosylation VEGF-C migrates as an 18-24 kDa protein in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Additional Information
IntroductionVEGF-C152S is a point mutant generated by the replacement of the second conserved Cys residue of the recombinant processed VEGF-C by a Ser residue. VEGF-C 152S is analog to the human VEGF-C 156S mutant and only active toward VEGFR-3/FLT-4 but, unlike wild type VEGF-C, is unable to bind to and to activate signaling throµgh VEGFR-2/KDR. VEGF-C152S was inactive in the vascular permeability assay and did not increase migration of the capillary endothelial cells, indicating that these VEGF-like effects of VEGF-C require VEGFR-2 binding. VEGF-C, also known as Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Related Protein (VRP), is a recently discovered VEGF growth factor family member that is most closely related to VEGF-D. The rat VEGF-C cDNA encodes a pre-pro-protein of 416 amino acids residues. It is almost identical to the mouse VEGF-C protein. Similar to VEGF-D, VEGF-C has a VEGF homology domain spanning the middle third of the precursor molecule and long N- and C-terminal extensions. In adults, VEGF-C is highly expressed in heart, placenta, ovary and small intestine. Recombinant rat VEGF-C, lacking the N- and C-terminal extensions and containing only the middle VEGF homology domain, forms primarily non-covalently linked dimers. This protein is a ligand for both VEGFR-2/KDR and VEGFR-3/FLT -4. Since VEGFR-3 is strongly expressed in lymphatic endothelial cells, it has been postulated that VEGF-C is involved in the regulation of the growth and/or differentiation of lymphatic endothelium. Althoµgh recombinant rat VEGF-C is also a mitogen for vascular endothelial cells, it is much less potent than VEGF-A.
SynonymsVEGF-C152, Vascular endothelial growth factor C 152, VRP, Flt4 ligand, Flt4-L.
SourceSf9, Insect Cells.
Physical AppearanceSterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
FormulationThe protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with BSA.
SolubilityIt is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor C 152 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
StabilityLyophilized Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-C152 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution VEGF-C 152 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
PurityGreater than 90.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Biological ActivityMeasured by its ability to stimulate phosphorylation of the VEGFR-3/FLT-4 receptor in porcine aortic endothelial cells (PAE/FLT -4 cells). The ED50 for this effect is typically 150-300 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 3.3-6.6KUnits/mg.
