PODS® Growth Factors

This growth factor is also available as PODS® for sustained release, see here.


Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells in response to basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) or vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). CTGF promotes cell growth, migration, adhesion, and survival of endothelial cells. CTGF is also important during osteogenesis, chondrogenesis, and skeletogenesis. CTGF has an insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP) domain, a thrombospondin type 1 repeat (TSR) domain, and a C-terminal cysteine knot motif.

Activity Assay

Human CTGF is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the dose-dependent induction of HUVEC cells proliferation and it is typically less than 2 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 500 units/mg.
