VEGF-A // Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor

Biomarker Therapeutic Areas: 
Biomarker Matrices: 

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor A (VEGF-A or VEGF) is a member of the Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) family and is implicated in embryogenic development, angiogenesis and vascular permeability (Coultas et al., 2005). Biological activities of VEGF-A are mediated through binding with VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2, two related tyrosine kinases receptors (Ferrara et al., 2003). VEGF-A exist under several isoforms (at least 7 different spliced variants) which have different capacities to bind heparin and heparin-sulfate and are differentially expressed during development (Byrne et al., 2005). Biological functions of VEGF-A are not limited to angiogenesis and vascular permeability, VEGF-A signaling has also an implication in the initiation of tumorigenesis and regulation of cancer cells microenvironment (Goel and Mercurio, 2013). High levels of VEGF-A in serum have also been found in several autoimmune diseases (Carvalho et al., 2007).

Bioclinica Lab employs a manual sandwich immunoassay for VEGF-A measurement in plasma.
