P4306 Sigma

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor-BB human

PDGF-BB, recombinant, expressed in E. coli, lyophilized powder, suitable for cell culture

Synonym: PDGF-BB



Analysis Note

The biological activity is measured by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake in BALB/c 3T3 cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) elicits multifunctional actions with a variety of cells. It is mitogenic to mesoderm-derived cells, such as dermal and tendon fibroblasts, vascular smooth muscle cells, glial cells, and chondrocytes. PDGF is a potent chemoattractant and activator of neutrophils, monocytes, and fibroblasts. It increases the synthesis of phospholipids, cholesterol esters, glycogen and prostaglandins, and modulates LDL receptor binding.

Other Notes

Dimer of the B chain of human PDGF.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution.
