Recombinant Rat Platelet-derived Growth Factor, Alpha Polypeptide (dimer)

Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is a glycoprotein present in serum but absent from plasma. PDGF has three subforms: PDGFAA, PDGFBB, and PDGF-AB. This form is a disulfide-linked homodimer consisting of two peptide chains A (PDGFAA). It is involved in a number of biological processes, including hyperplasia, embryonic neuron development, chemotaxis, and respiratory tubule epithelial cell development. The function of PDGF is mediated by two tyrosine kinase receptors, PDGFR-α and PDGFR-β. PDGFR-α is the receptor that binds PDGFAA.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized powder. Purified and tested for use in cell culture.
