Product Details


The human VEGFR-1 ELISA Kit is used to quantitatively measure human VEGFR-1 concentrations in serum, plasma, or tissue homogenates. It performs well in important characteristics, including sensitivity, specificity, precision, recovery, linearity, and lot-to-lot consistency. This assay is based on the sandwich ELISA mechanism and enzyme-substrate chromogenic reaction. The solution color develops proportionally to the amount of VEGFR-1 in the sample. And the intensity of the color can be measured at 450 nm via a microplate reader.

VEGFR-1, also called Flt-1, is a high-affinity tyrosine kinase receptor for VEGFs, including VEGF-A, VEGF-B, and PIGF. Distinct from VEGFR-2, which participates both in physiological and pathological angiogenesis, VEGFR-1 in the adult is necessary only for pathological angiogenesis. VEGFR-1-VEGF plays an essential role in tumor-related angiogenesis, tissue infiltration, and metastasis formation. Furthermore, VEGFR-1 activation contributes to the recruitment of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), cancer immune escape, and stimulation of migration and extracellular matrix (ECM) invasion.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Tyrosine-protein kinase that acts as a cell-surface receptor for VEGFA, VEGFB and PGF, and plays an essential role in the development of embryonic vasculature, the regulation of angiogenesis, cell survival, cell migration, macrophage function, chemotaxis, and cancer cell invasion. Acts as a positive regulator of postnatal retinal hyaloid vessel regression (Ref.11). May play an essential role as a negative regulator of embryonic angiogenesis by inhibiting excessive proliferation of endothelial cells. Can promote endothelial cell proliferation, survival and angiogenesis in adulthood. Its function in promoting cell proliferation seems to be cell-type specific. Promotes PGF-mediated proliferation of endothelial cells, proliferation of some types of cancer cells, but does not promote proliferation of normal fibroblasts (in vitro). Has very high affinity for VEGFA and relatively low protein kinase activity; may function as a negative regulator of VEGFA signaling by limiting the amount of free VEGFA and preventing its binding to KDR. Modulates KDR signaling by forming heterodimers with KDR. Ligand binding leads to the activation of several signaling cascades. Activation of PLCG leads to the production of the cellular signaling molecules diacylglycerol and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate and the activation of protein kinase C. Mediates phosphorylation of PIK3R1, the regulatory subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, leading to activation of phosphatidylinositol kinase and the downstream signaling pathway. Mediates activation of MAPK1/ERK2, MAPK3/ERK1 and the MAP kinase signaling pathway, as well as of the AKT1 signaling pathway. Phosphorylates SRC and YES1, and may also phosphorylate CBL. Promotes phosphorylation of AKT1 at 'Ser-473'. Promotes phosphorylation of PTK2/FAK1.; Phosphorylates PLCG.; May function as decoy receptor for VEGFA.; May function as decoy receptor for VEGFA.; May function as decoy receptor for VEGFA.; Has a truncated kinase domain; it increases phosphorylation of SRC at 'Tyr-418' by unknown means and promotes tumor cell invasion.
