Amos I had the same experience as you with VEGF's until I switched to
monoclonal Vegf from Santa Cruz, it now appears very specific and reliable
to me.  I use pepsin or proteinase K digestion and stay away from HIER.

         Sorry to say there's no such thing. VEGF, despite any
specifications, just doesn't work properly. We've tried at least 4
different vendors with hardly any success. Either it didn't label at all,
labeled in all the wrong places, or the negative control looked the same as
the test tissue. Check the controls closely if you try this. It's just not
a reliable antibody.
