Immunofluorescent analysis of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF, green) in Hela cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS, and blocked with 3% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were stained with (left panel) or without (right panel) a VEGF polyclonal antibody (Product # P931) at a dilution of 1:40 for at least 1 hour at room temperature, and then incubated with a Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:1000 for 45 minutes at room temperature. F-actin (both panels, red) was stained by Dylight 554 Phalloidin (Product # 21834) and nuclei (both panels, blue) were stained with DAPI (Product # 46190). Images were taken at 60X magnification.

P931 targets VEGF in ELISA, IF/ICC and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples. P931 detects VEGF which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 24 kDa.
This product is a Low Endotoxin formulation.
This 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. Elevated levels of this protein is linked to POEMS syndrome, also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome. Mutations in this gene have been associated with proliferative and nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants, encoding either freely secreted or cell-associated isoforms, have been characterized. There is also evidence for the use of non-AUG (CUG) translation initiation sites upstream of, and in-frame with the first AUG, leading to additional isoforms.
