DescriptionPlatelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is an important regulator of cell growth, proliferation, and angiogenesis. Mouse PDGF is crossreactive with human and monkey. 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 AssayMouse PDGF-BB is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the induction of BALB/c 3T3 cells proliferation and it is typically less than 2 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 5.0 x 105 units/mg.
