This Antibody was verified by Cell treatment to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated.
On western blotting this antibody detects a protein with the apparent MW of 150 kDa. Positive controls used Porcine aortic endothelial (PAE) cells transfected with a chimeric receptor consisting of the extracellular domain of the CSF-1 receptor coupled to the transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains of the mouse VEGFR2, or 293T cells transfected with full length VEGFR2 and stimulated with 10 ng/mL VEGF for 5 minutes.
VEGFR3 has not been tested, but is expected to react with this antibody.
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.
