Immunofluorescent analysis of VEGF (green) in HeLa cells either serum starved (left panel) or treated with serum (right panel) for 30 minutes. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a VEGF polyclonal antibody (Product # P802) at a dilution of 1:50 for at least 1 hour at room temperature, washed with PBS, and incubated with DyLight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody (Product # 35552) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. F-Actin (red) was stained with DyLight 554 Phalloidin (Product # 21834) and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product # 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

The VEGF-A monoclonal antibody clone # 16F1 (Product # M808) has successfully been paired as the coating antibody in a sandwich ELISA with detection antibody P802B (biotinylated conjugate of Product # P802).
Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1µg/ml for coating and 0.125-0.5µg/ml for detection.
The VEGF gene is a member of the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family and encodes a protein that is often found as a disulfide linked homodimer. This protein is a glycosylated mitogen that specifically acts on endothelial cells and has various effects, including mediating increased vascular permeability, inducing angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth, promoting cell migration, and inhibiting apoptosis.
