Human VEGF-C ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human VEGF-C ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human VEGF-C in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Vascular endothelial growth factor C is a VEGF. The human gene encoding it is VEGFC. 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, lymphangiogenesis and endothelial cell growth and survival, 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(VEGF-D). The C terminus of VEGFC has cysteine-rich repeat units characteristic of the Balbiani ring 3 protein(BR3P) of the midge Chironomus tentans.1,2 The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human VEGF-C, consisting of 135 amino acids with the molecular mass of 23Kda after glycosylation.
