Product Description

VEGF-165, or vascular endothelial growth factor 165, is a protein that plays a crucial role in angiogenesis, which is the formation of new blood vessels. It's a member of the PDGF (Platelet-Derived Growth Factors) family that is characterized by the presence of eight conserved cysteine residues and a cystine knot structure.

In simpler terms, it's like a molecular architect that signals the body to build new blood vessels, particularly important in processes like wound healing and the development of collateral blood vessels to improve blood flow in ischemic tissues. This specific isoform, VEGF-165, is one of several VEGF isoforms, each with slightly different properties and functions.

Our products are produced using a proprietary plant based expressed system.

  • Animal Component Free (ACF). No endotoxins, prions or virons to risk microbial contamination.
  • Highly flexible platform used to produce multiple proteins with minimal changes to method.
  • Because of the plant based source, our proteins generally have been found to have a 10% to 20% higher activity compared to e.coli.

MNPharm Guarantee

If your product VEGF-165 is within its expiration period, and has not performed according to expectations, fill out the sample return form. Return the unused sample frozen, with the auto generated packing slip to the address on the instructions. You will receive a full refund along with a replacement of the unused portion (inclusive of the failed test). Damages do not cover any additional costs incurred for failed experimentation. 

Storage Instructions

Store in aliquots at -20°C or -80°C.
We recommend that single use aliquots are prepared to avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

Sample Prep Instructions 

  1. Thaw the vial on ice, spin briefly
  2. Prepare single-use or stock aliquots. This stage will depend on your final application so please adapt as appropriate. All our proteins are supplied carrier protein-free. If compatible with your work and you are storing at lower concentrations (<50 ug/ml) adding carrier protein is highly advised (usually 1% w/v high purity BSA or equivalent – ensure all buffers are sterile-filtered).
  3. Prepare single-use aliquots whenever possible to avoid freeze-thaw cycles which can damage the proteins and reduce bioactivity. Store aliquots at -70 °C (or -20 °C)
  4. We recommend sterile filtering after dilution in media or the final working solution
