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 # PA5-13297) 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.

PA5-13297 targets Vascular Growth Factor (VEGF) in IF and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The PA5-13297 immunogen is a synthetic peptide between 66-95 amino acids from the N-terminal region of Human VEGF.
VEGF1 is a member of the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family and and 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 are linked to POEMS syndrome, also known as Crow-Fukase syndrome. Mutations in VEGF1 have been associated with proliferative and nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy.
