Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important signaling protein involved in vessel formation. VEGF mediates increased vascular permeability, induces vasculogenesis and endothelial cell production, promotes cell migration, and inhibits apoptosis. In vitro, VEGF has been shown to stimulate endothelial cell mitogenesis and cell migration. VEGF is also a vasodilator and increases microvascular permeability and was originally referred to as vascular permeability factor.

<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Measure by its ability to induce HUVEC cells proliferation.
The ED50 for this effect is <5 ng/mL.
The specific activity of recombinant human VEGF165 is approximately >1.4 x 106 IU/mg.
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE. Ni-NTA chromatography
The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 1X PBS, pH 8.0.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H₂O to a concentration not less than 100 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 minutes to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.
