Introduction

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.They act as potent mitogens for almost all mesenchymally-derived cells. Aberrant expression is involved in certain cancers, fibroproliferative disorders and atherosclerosis. The protein also contributes to wound healing and neural regeneration. There are four members of the PDGF family – PDGF A, PDGF B, PDGF C and PDGF D. Two distinct types of PDGF-A exist – a short form that is soluble and a long form that is retained by the extracellular matrix.

Description

Platelet-derived Growth Factor AB Human Recombinant is a heterodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 234 amino acids (and an N-terminal Met) consisting of 14.3kDa alpha-chain and 12.1 beta-chain having a total molecular mass of 26.4kDa. 
PDGF-AB is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from 10mM AcOH (Acetic Acid).

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Platelet-derived Growth Factor-AB in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Platelet-derived Growth Factor AB although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PDGF-AB should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis.
