VEGF Recombinant Human Protein

Back to top

Description

Recombinant Human Vascular Endothelial Cell Growth Factor (VEGF) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. VEGF exerts angiogenic, mitogenic and vascular permeability-enhancing activities specific for endothelial cells. VEGF has also been shown to be chemotactic for monocytes and osteoblasts.

High purity—no interference from other proteins or contaminants
High biological activity—more results with less protein
Proven compatibility—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® media

High Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant Human Vascular Endothelial Cell Growth Factor is one of our more than 250 available Gibco® recombinant proteins. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.

High Biological Activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant Human Vascular Endothelial Cell Growth Factor (VEGF) specific activity is determined by the dose dependent proliferation of human umbilical vein cells (HUVEC).

Proven Compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.
