Product Info
Background The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family currently includes VEGF (VEGF-A), VEGF-B, VEGF-C, VEGF-D, VEGF-E, and PIGF (1). VEGF and its receptor system have been shown to be the fundamental regulators in the cell signaling of angiogenesis (2). Most tumors have the absolute requirement of angiogenesis and VEGF has been described as the most potent angiogenic cytokine linked to this process (3&4). To date 5 different isoforms of VEGF have been described, VEGF 121, VEGF 145, VEGF 165, VEGF 165b, and VEGF 189(4&5). These isoforms are generated as the result of alternative splicing from a single VEGF gene. These various isoforms have been shown to bind to two tyrosine-kinase receptors flt-1 (VEGFR-1) and flk-1/KDR (VEGFR-2), which have been found to be expressed almost exclusively on endothelial cells (5). 
Origin VEGF (VG-1) is provided as a mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived from BALB/C mice immunized with recombinant VEGF.

Form 100 g/ml mouse monoclonal IgG1 in 1 ml PBS containing 0.1 % sodium azide and 0.2% gelatin.
