Specificity

This product is specific for human PDGF-BB (Platelet derived growth factor B chain), a disulphide-linked beta-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.

The expression of PDGF-BB is associated with autocrine growth stimulation and the formation of various tumour types, with several studies focusing on dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DP), an infiltrating skin tumour arising from a translocation occurring between chromosome 22 (the location of the PDGFB gene) and chromosome 17 (the location of the COL1A1 gene), which results in the generation of the COL1A1-PDGFB chimeric protein.

Storage/Stability

Prior to reconstitution store at +4 °C.
After reconstitution store at -20 °C.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. 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.
