The antibodies in this kit recognize VEGF-A (VEGF165 or isoform d), VEGF162, VEGF145 (isoform e) and VEGF121 (isoform f). One of the sandwiching antibodies is a mouse monoclonal, clone 26503. The other sandwiching antibody is a goat polyclonal raised against human recombinant VEGF165.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A or VEGF) is a homodimeric 34-42 kDa heparin-binding glycoprotein specific for endothelial cells. Currently at least eight variants of VEGF generated by alternative splicing of the same gene have been identified. The various isoforms have different heparin- and neuropilin(-1 or -2)-binding properties as well as solubility characteristics reflecting the different functional properties of the VEGF forms. VEGF is believed to play important roles in inflammation and during normal and pathological angiogenesis, a process that is associated with wound healing, embryonic development, and growth and metastasis of solid tumors. Elevated levels of VEGF have been observed in synovial fluids of rheumatoid arthritis patients and sera of cancer patients.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
