Vascular endothelial growth factor is an important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. As its name implies, VEGF activity has been mostly studied on cells of the vascular endothelium, although it does have effects on a number of other cell types (e.g. stimulation monocyte/ macrophagemigration, neurons, cancer cells, kidney epithelial cells ). VEGF mediates increased vascular permeability, induces angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth, promotes cell migration, and inhibits apoptosis. In vitro, VEGF has been shown to stimulate endothelial cell mitogenesisand cell migration. VEGF is also a vasodilator and increases microvascular permeability and was originally referred to as vascular permeability factor.
Elevated levels of this protein are linked to POEMS syndrome, also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome. Mutations in this gene have been associated with proliferative and nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy.

|Formulation||The protein was lyophilized from a Phosphate- Buffered Saline, pH 7.4.|
|Purity||Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Biological Activity||The protein was tested in HUVEC cells, the ED50 for this effect was found to be 2-6ng/ml.|
|Stability||Lyophilized Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Human although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution VEGF Human Recombinant 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.
