Mouse VEGFR2/KDR ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse VEGFR2/KDR ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse VEGFR2 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2(VEGFR-2) is a VEGF receptor. This receptor, known as kinase insert domain receptor, is a type III receptor tyrosine kinase. It is mapped to 4q12. This gene encodes one of the two receptors of the VEGF. It functions as the main mediator of VEGF-induced endothelial proliferation, survival, migration, tubular morphogenesis and sprouting. The signalling and trafficking of this receptor are regulated by multiple factors, including Rab GTPase, P2Y purine nucleotide receptor, integrin alphaVbeta3, T-cell protein tyrosine phosphatase, etc. VEGF receptor 2 and the adherens junction act as shear-stress cotransducers, mediating the transduction of shear-stress signals into vascular endothelial cells. In addition to those, VEGFR-2 is also a positive functional marker defining stem cells and distinguishing them from progenitors.
