Description: The Avas12a1 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Flk-1, also known as vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2). Flk-1 is a receptor tyrosine kinase involved in vascular endothelial tissue development and is expressed on endothelial cells during embryonic stages and some endothelial tissues in the adult.
Applications Reported: The Avas12a1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The Avas12a1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of bEnd.3 cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a major growth factor for endothelial cells. This gene encodes one of the two receptors of the VEGF. This receptor, known as kinase insert domain receptor, is a type III receptor tyrosine kinase. It functions as the main mediator of VEGF-induced endothelial proliferation, survival, migration, tubular morphogenesis and sprouting. The signalling and trafficking of this receptor are regulated by multiple factors, including Rab GTPase, P2Y purine nucleotide receptor, integrin alphaVbeta3, T-cell protein tyrosine phosphatase, etc.. Mutations of this gene are implicated in infantile capillary hemangiomas.
