||Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a disulfide linked homodimeric protein associated with angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth. At least 10 isoforms of VEGF are produced by alternative splicing with varying levels of expression. The isoforms VEGF189, VEGF165 and VEGF121 are widely expressed whereas the isoforms VEGF206 and VEGF145 are uncommon. Isoforms VEGF165 and VEGF121 are freely secreted whereas isoform VEGF189 remains cell associated.

||A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the N-terminus of human VEGFA(33-48aa VDIFQEYPDEIEYIFK), identical to the related mouse and rat sequences.
||VEGF-A; Vascular permeability factor; VPF; VEGFA; VEGF;
||Affinity purified on antigen column
||Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 0.1-0.5 ug/mL is recommended for WB. Human Vascular endothelial growth factor (isoform VEGF206) has a predicted length of 232 residues and MW of 27 kDa. A concentration of 0.5-1 ug/mL is recommended to detect the protein in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues. Heat antigen retrieval is required. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||The specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB and IHC against the antigen.
||Human; rat; expected to react with mouse due to sequence homology
||If you wish to use this product in a species other than those specified here and want to determine the amino acid sequence homology between the immunogen and the corresponding protein in that species, simply copy the amino acid sequence for this immunogen and test it on the BLAST database that you can access through the link below. Please note that antibodies raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide. What this means in practise is that a single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule.
The BLAST database can also be used to compare any amino acid sequence between species and between protein. The full amino acid sequence of the target protein can be found by following the link in the Accession field. You can then search any amino acid sequence in the target protein using the BLAST database. When selecting a sequence to search, please choose carefully, as the sequence you choose may be a precursor rather than the mature protein for example.
