Anti-Platelet-Derived Growth Factor antibody produced in goat

IgG fraction of antiserum, lyophilized powder

Synonym: Anti-PDGF

Description

Immunogen

natural human PDGF.

General description

Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is a serum growth factor purified from human platelets. The members of PDGF are homodimers of A-, B-, C- and –D polypeptide chains and an AB heterodimer. PDGF is a mitogen and stimulates the proliferation of cells of connective tissue and glial cells, survival, differentiation, chemotaxis and wound healing. The cellular effects of PDGF isoforms are mediated by binding to α- and β-receptors which leads to activation of downstream signaling via PI3K, STAT and Ras/MAPK. Overexpression of PDGF isoforms has been observed in various malignancies including gliomas, osetosarcoma, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia and non-small-cell lung cancers
Anti-Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) specifically recognizes natural human PDGF. It will also neutralize the activity of recombinant human PDGF-AB, recombinant human PDGF-AA, recombinant human PDGF-BB, and natural porcine PDGF-BB. It shows cross reactivity with recombinant human PDGF-AB, recombinant human PDGF-AA, recombinant human PDGF-BB, and natural porcine PDGF-BB.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.4) with 5% trehalose.

Specificity

The antibody will neutralize the biological activity of natural human PDGF, recombinant human PDGF-AB, PDGF-AA and PDGF-BB and natural porcine PDGF-BB.

Preparation Note

Purified using protein G.

Application

Anti-Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) antibody may be used for ELISA at a working concentration of 0.25 μg/ml. The antibody has been used for ELISA at a dilution of 1:500 using human serum.. For immunoblotting, a concentration of 1 μg/ml is recommended. The antibody is suitable for neutralization reactions and has been used to neutralize PDGF of primary Human dermal fibroblasts (HDFs) and human platelet-enriched plasma.
