PlGF in Human Placenta. PlGF was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human placenta using Human PlGF Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2642) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to syncytiotrophoblast cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Placenta growth factor (PlGF) is a member of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family of growth factors. As a result of alternative splicing, at least two PlGF mRNAs encoding monomeric PlGF precursors containing 149 and 170 amino acid residues have been described. The expression of PlGF is not widespread but has been detected in human umbilical vein endothelial cells, placenta, choriocarcinoma cell lines, and in renal cell carcinoma associated with angiogenesis. The PlGF proteins bind with high-affinity to VEGF R1/Flt-1 but not to VEGF R2/Flk-1.
