Catalog Number: 100-16

Alternate Names:  GDGF, ODGF               Accession Number: P04085
Description:  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 alpha-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-α and PDGFR-β.
