Specificity

This product is specific for human PDGF-AA (Platelet derived growth factor A chain), a disulphide-linked alpha-chain homodimer and member of the PDGF family, released from platelet alpha-granules following trauma/platelet activation.

Naturally occurring active forms of PDGF exist as dimers of two alpha chains (AA), two beta chains (BB), or a combination of both chains (AB), all of which signal through the high-affinity PDGF-Ralpha receptor, and the latter two of which can also signal through the PDGF-Rbeta receptor. PDGFs are potent mitogens for a variety of cells including those of the connective tissue, bone and cartilage, blood and smooth muscle cells, and are involved in several biological processes including chemotaxis, hyperplasia and embryonic neurogenesis.

An increased expression of PDGF-AA has been associated with a diverse range of conditions including progression of osteosarcomas, persistent Cytomegalovirus infection in kidney allografts and mediation of IL-13-stimulated lung fibroblast proliferation in asthma.

Storage/Stability

Prior to reconstitution store at +4 °C.
After reconstitution store at -20 °C.
This product should be stored undiluted. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 12 months after receipt.
