The process of expressing the recombinant mouse Vegfc protein in the E.coli requires the recombinant DNA gene formed by the integration of encoding gene for the 108-223aa of the mouse Vegfc protein and N-terminal 6xHis tag sequence, the expression vector that the recombinant DNA gene inserts into, the E.coli that provided the necessary macromolecules and components for transcription and translation of the cloned expression vector. After isolation and purification, this N-terminal 6xHis-tagged recombinant Vegfc protein was obtained. This recombinant Vegfc protein is characterized by high purity (>90%, SDS-PAGE). This Vegfc protein ran along the gel to the band of approximately 18 kDa molecular weight.

Vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C), also known as Flt4 ligand (Flt4-L), is a protein encoding by a gene named Vegfc in mouse and a gene named VEGFC in human. This protein belongs to PDGF/VEGF growth factor family, which is a specific mitogen of vascular endothelial cells and can specifically stimulate endothelial cells to split and proliferate, and promote the growth of blood vessels. VEGF-C acts as a growth factor for angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis through signal transduction with receptors VEGFR-3 (also called Flt-4) and VEGFR-2.

Target Background

Growth factor active in angiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in angiogenesis of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults. Binds and activates KDR/VEGFR2 and FLT4/VEGFR3 receptors.
