Recombinant Human VEGF-B (N-Fc)

Cat.No.: CS78

Recombinant Human VEGFB (N-Fc)
Description
Recombinant Human Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor B is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Pro22-Ala207 is expressed with a Fc tag at the N-terminus.
Accession #:P49765
Known as:Vascular endothelial growth factor B;VEGF-B;VEGF-related factor;VRF
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 EU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
VEGFB, as known as VRF, is a member of the VEGF family of growth factors that share structural and functional similarity. By alternative splicing, two isoforms of mature VEGF-B containing 167 or 186 amino acid (aa) residues exist. VEGF-B is expressed in most tissues, especially in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas. The two VEGF-B isoforms have identical amino-terminal cysteine-knot VEGF homology domains but the carboxyl end of VEGF-B167 differs from that of VEGF-B186 by the presence of a highly basic cysteine-rich heparin binding domain. VEGF-B167 and a proteolytically processed form of VEGF-B186 also bind neuropilin-1, a type I transmembrane receptor for semaphorins/collapsins, ligands involved in neuron guidance.
