Induced profilferation of NIH 3T3 cells for Human PDGF-BB. Cell proliferation was measured to calculate the ED50, which is as expected less than 20 ng/ml.
Non-reducing (-) and reducing (+) conditions in a 4 - 20% Tris-Glycine gel stained with Coomassie Blue. 1 μg of protein was loaded in each lane. Human PDGF-BB has a predicted Mw of 24.9 kDa (each monomer is 12.4 kDa).

PODS® Growth Factors

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


Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is an important regulator of cell growth, proliferation, and angiogenesis. PDGF synthesis is induced by IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α, TGF-β and EGF signaling. PDGF functions as a mitogenic growth hormone on cells of mesenchymal lineage, such as smooth muscle and glial cells. PDGF is also stored in the α-granules of platelets and is released upon adherence to traumatized tissues. PDGF is a dimeric glycoprotein formed by two A chains (AA), two B chains (BB), or as a heterodimer with an A and a B chain (AB). The PDGF dimer binds the cell surface receptor tyrosine kinases PDGFR-a and PDGFR-b.

Activity Assay

Human PDGF-BB is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the proliferation of NIH 3T3 cells and it is typically less than 20 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 5.0 x 104 units/mg.
