Recombinant Human Platelet-derived Growth Factor, Beta Polypeptide (dimer)
Simian Sarcoma Viral Oncogene Homolog (SSV)
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 B (PDGFBB). It is involved in a number of biological processes, including hyperplasia, embryonic neuron development, chemotaxis, and respiratory tubule epithelial cell development. In contrast to PDGFAA, the beta chains in PDGFBB are sufficient for mitogenesis. The function of PDGF is mediated by two tyrosine kinase receptors, PDGFR-α and PDGFR-β, both of which bind PDGFBB.
