Rabbit anti Rat VEGF antibody specifically recognizes rat VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor), a heparin-binding cytokine and member of the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family, which acts as a vasodilator, regulator of vasculogenesis, and is a potent stimulator of angiogenesis of both normal and cancerous cells.

All VEGF family members act through binding to the tyrosine kinase receptors VEGFR-1 (Flt-1) and VEGFR-2 (KDR/CD309), and the functional forms of VEGF, which exist as disulphide-linked homodimers, are classified according to the number of amino acid residues within a constitutive polypeptide chain e.g VEGF165.

Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.5ml sterile PBS containing 0.1% bovine serum albumin
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
