Platelet-Derived Growth Factor BB Human Recombinant is a homodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2x109 amino acids (218 amino acids in total) and having a molecular mass of 24.3 kDa. PDGF-BB is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PDGF-BB is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor family. The four members of this family are mitogenic factors for cells of mesenchymal origin and are characterized by a motif of eight cysteines. This gene product can exist either as a homodimer (PDGF-BB) or as a heterodimer with the platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide (PDGF-AB), where the dimers are connected by disulfide bonds. Mutations in this gene are associated with meningioma. Reciprocal translocations between chromosomes 22 and 7, at sites where this gene and that for COL1A1 are located, are associated with a particular type of skin tumor called dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans resulting from unregulated expression of growth factor. Two splice variants have been identified for this gene.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Platelet-derived Growth Factor-BB in sterile 18M?-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized Platelet-derived Growth Factor BB althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PDGF BB should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of Balb/c 3T3 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1.0-3.0 ng/ml.
