Rat VEGFR3/FLT4 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat VEGFR3/FLT4 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat VEGFR3 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Fms-related tyrosine kinase 4, also known as FLT4 or VEGFR3, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the FLT4 gene. It is mapped to 5q35.3. This gene encodes a tyrosine kinase receptor for vascular endothelial growth factors C and D. The protein is thought to be involved in lymphangiogenesis and maintenance of the lymphatic endothelium. FLT4 has an essential role in the development of the embryonic cardiovascular system before the emergence of the lymphatic vessels. It has been found that FLT4, which provides proangiogenic signaling when expressed on endothelium, may also have antiangiogenic properties when expressed at an avascular site by nonendothelial cells. FLT4 is also regarded as a regulator of vascular network formation.
