Vascular endothelial growth factor/vascular permeability factor (VEGF/VPF) is a multifunctional cytokine that is expressed as four isoforms having 206, 189, 165, and 121 amino acids in humans. We constructed a system that produces the shortest isoform of human VEGF/VPF in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yVEGF/VPF121). Active yVEGF/VPF121 was secreted from the yeast cells as a glycosylated dimeric protein. Various biological activities of the purified yVEGF/VPF121 were examined. It bound to cell… CONTINUE READING
