VEGFR-3, also known as FLT4, is a member of the Tyr protein kinase family. The extracellular portion of VEGFR-3 contains 7 immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains and the cytoplasmic portion contains a protein kinase domain. FLT4 regulates angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, its ligands are VEGF-C and D and its binding is mediated by the 2nd and 3rd Ig-like domains of FLT4. During fetal development VEGFR-3 is expressed on endothelial cells, however, in the adult mice, the vascular endothelial cells lose VEGFR-3 expression, but the lymphatic endothelium expresses it constitutively. In addition, VEGFR-3 expression can be induced in tumors with active angiogenesis.Product Details

- Application Notes
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: ELISA1,2, immunoprecipitation1and Western blot1,2 from cell lysates, immunohistochemical staining1, 3 of frozen and paraffin embedded tissue sections and in whole-mount mouse embryos, in vivo blocking1, 5 of VEGF-C binding to inhibit angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis, growth and metastasis of different tumor cells, in vitro blocking4 of VEGF-C binding to induce dispersion of endothelial cell clusters.
This clone detect multiple bands by western blot: a ~140 kD band corresponding to cleaved/soluble VEGFR-3, and 220 and 230 kD bands corresponding to unglycosylated and glycosylated full length VEGFR-3 (Bando, et al. 2004. Int J Canc. 111:184.)
- Additional Product Notes
This product has been reported by a collaborator to work for immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections.
