Determined by its ability to support rat Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGC-5) cell growth in low serum media.
Activity assay SDS-PAGE The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
Lyophilized from sterile solution with no additives
Store at -20°C. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex. For extended storage, to further dilute in buffer containing carrier protein (e.g. 0.1% BSA) and store in aliquots at -20°C to -80°C is recommended.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor/vascular endothelial growth factor (PDGF/VEGF) family, is active in angiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, and can also affect the permeability of blood vessels. This secreted protein undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation, generating multiple processed forms which bind and activate VEGFR-3 receptors. Only the fully processed form can bind and activate VEGFR-2 receptors. This protein is structurally and functionally similar to vascular endothelial growth factor D. [provided by RefSeq
