Description

General description

Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is a potent mitogen for a wide range of cell types including fibroblasts, smooth muscle and connective tissue. PDGF, which is composed of a dimer of two chains termed the A chain and B chain, can be present as AA or BB homodimers or as an AB heterodimer. Human PDGF-AA is a 28.5 kDa A chain homodimer protein containing 250 amino acid residues.

Product Source: E.coli

Application

For most in vitro applications, PDGF-AA exerts its biological activity in the concentration range of 0.2 to 10.0 ng/mL. Responding cells are (partial list): Fibroblasts, connective tissue.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 10mM Acetic Acid solution.

Storage and Stability

The lyophilized PDGF-AA is stable for a few weeks at room temperature, but best stored at -80°C. After a quick spin, reconstitute in 10mM Acetic Acid to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. This solution can be diluted into aqueous buffered solutions and stored at 2-8°C for one week or -20°C for future use. Reconstituted PDGF-AA should be stored in undiluted aliquots at -20°C for up to six months.
