Description:

Recombinant Human soluble Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-1 (sVEGFR-1) is the naturally occurring form and was cloned from total RNA of human umbilical vein endothelial cells. The recombinant mature sVEGFR-1 is a glycosylated monomeric protein with a mass of approximately 96 kDa. The soluble receptor protein consists of the first 6 extracellular domains (Met1-His688) containing the unique 31 amino acids residues at the C-terminus. Endothelial cells express three different vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors, belonging to the family of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). They are named VEGFR-1 (Flt-1), VEGFR-2 (KDR/Flk-1), and VEGFR-3 (Flt-4). Their expression is almost exclusively restricted to endothelial cells, but VEGFR-1 can also be found on monocytes, dendritic cells and on trophoblast cells. The flt-1 gene was first described in 1990. The receptor contains seven immunoglobulin-like extracellular domains, a single transmembrane region and an intracellular split tyrosine kinase domain. Compared to VEGFR-2 the Flt-1 receptor has a higher affinity for VEGF but a weaker signaling activity. VEGFR-1 thus leads not to proliferation of endothelial cells, but mediates signals for differentiation. Interestingly, a naturally occurring soluble variant of VEGFR-1 (sVEGFR-1) was found in HUVEC supernatants in 1996, which is generated by alternative splicing of the flt-1 mRNA. The biological functions of sVEGFR-1 still are not clear, but it seems to be an endogenous regulator of angiogenesis binding VEGF with the same affinity as the full-length receptor.

Reconstitution:

Centrifuge vial prior to opening. The lyophilized sVEGFR-1 is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers and should be reconstituted in PBS to a concentration not lower than 100 ng/ml.

Storage/Stability:

Lyophilized protein is stable for 6 months at -20°C to -80°C. Store reconstituted protein in working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
