The term ‘PDGF’ refers to a family of disulphide bond-linked dimeric isoforms that act as autocrine and paracrine growth factors and are produced by a variety of cell types other than platelets. There are four members of the PDGF family – PDGF A, PDGF B, PDGF C and PDGF D.
Platelet-derived growth factor AB (PDGF-AB) is a disulfide-linked heterodimer of two chains termed subunit A and B, which form different members of the PDGF family including the homodimers PDGF-AA and PDGF-BB. PDGF-AB is synthesized by megakaryocytes and stored in alpha granules in platelets, from which it is released upon stimulation with thrombin or other signals related to inflammation and injury (IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α). PDGF-AB is also produced by macrophages, endothelial cells, fibroblast, and is present in the nervous system and in muscles.
By binding PDGF receptors alpha and beta (PDGFR-α and PDGFR-β), PDGF-AB acts as a potent mitogen on several mesenchymal-derived cells, including fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and cells of the connective tissue. PDGF-AB is not released to the circulation, but acts in the tissues in an autocrine and paracrine fashion. It is involved in hyperplasia, chemotaxis, wound healing, in the development of the nervous system, and in osteogenic differentiation.
The entire kit may be stored at -20°C for up to 1 year from the date of shipment. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. The kit may be stored at 4°C for up to 6 months. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -80°C.
Human PDGF-AB EasyTest™ ELISA Kit is for Research Use Only.
