VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 in Human Placenta. VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human placenta using 25 µg/mL Human VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3571) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 in Human Kidney. VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney array using Human VEGF R2/KDR/Flk‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3571) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Background: VEGF R2/KDR/Flk-1
VEGF R2 (KDR/Flk-1), VEGF R1 (Flt-1), and VEGF R3 (Flt-4) belong to the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). All three receptors contain seven immunoglobulin-like repeats in their extracellular domains and kinase insert domains in their intracellular regions. The expression of VEGF R1, 2, and 3 is almost exclusively restricted to the endothelial cells. These receptors are likely to play essential roles in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis.
VEGF R2 cDNA encodes a 1356 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a 19 aa residue signal peptide. Mature VEGF R2 is composed of a 745 aa residue extracellular domain, a 25 aa residue transmembrane domain and a 567 aa residue cytoplasmic domain. In contrast to VEGF R1 which binds both PlGF and VEGF with high affinity, VEGF R2 binds VEGF but not PlGF with high affinity. The recombinant soluble VEGF R2/Fc chimera binds VEGF with high affinity and is a potent VEGF antagonist.
