VEGFB is a growth factor for endothelial cells. VEGFB 167 a.a. binds heparin and neuropilin-1 while the binding to neuropilin-1 of VEGFB 186 a.a. is regulated by proteolysis. Overexpression of VEGFB in mouse heart alters cardiac lipid metabolism and induces myocardial hypertrophy. Increased VEGFB expression is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma. VEGF-B has restricted angiogenic activity in the ischemic heart. VEGFB binds to VEGFR1, Flt1, but not to VEGFR2 and VEGFR3. VEGFB is homodimeric, heparin-binding glycoprotein involved in embryonic angiogenesis and vasculogenesis.
VEGF-B Polyclonal Antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen. This antibody has been tested with WB, IHC-p and ELISA. And Abbkine suggested starting dilutions are as follows:WB: 1:500-1:2000, IHC-p: 1:100-1:300, ELISA: 1:20000.
The VEGF family members regulate the formation of blood vessels and are involved in endothelial cell physiology. I've tried VEGF-B Polyclonal Antibody with excellent results. It is a wise choice to choose Abbkine.
