VEGF-D belongs to the VEGF/PDGF family of proteins. VEGF-D promotes lymphangiogesis, endothelial cell growth, and regulates vascular permeability. In addition, VEGF-D has an important part in the creation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems and in the growth and maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium Mature VEGF-D forms a noncovalently linked homodimer, and binds to and activate both VEGFR-2 (flk1) and VEGFR-3 (flt4).
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The recombinant VEGF-D was lyophilized after extensive dialysis against PBS.
It is recommended to reconstitute the Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor D in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized VEGF-D althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution VEGF-D 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.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50 of 3-4ng/ml is measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of human microvascular endothelial cells (HMVECs).
