General description

The human VEGFA, a 45 kDa homodimeric glycoprotein, is one of the most potent angiogenic factors involved in endothelial cell proliferation, migration, and secretion of MMPs. It also serves as an important survival factor for endothelial cells, inhibiting apoptosis. VEGFA belongs to a family that includes VEGFA, VEGFB, VEGFC, VEGFD, and placental growth factor (PLGF). In humans four prominent isoforms of VEGFA are recognized, VEGF121, VEGF165, VEGF189, and VEGF206. In addition, two other less frequent splice variants, VEGF145 and VEGF183, have also been reported. The properties of native VEGF are very similar to VEGF165. Of all the different isoforms of VEGF, the VEGF165 has the highest bioavailability and biological potency. VEGFA action is mediated by VEGF receptor-1 (VEGFR-1) and VEGFR-2. VEGFR-1 (180 kDa, Flt-1) expression is upregulated by hypoxic conditions in the inner core of tumor mass. VEGFR-2 (200 kDa, KDR) is a major mediator of mitogenic and angiogenic permeability enhancing effects of VEGF. It is also reported to mediate survival signals in endothelial cells.
