Purity by SDS PAGE
The ED₅₀ as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by Balb-c 3T3 cells is < 1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of >1 x 10⁶ units/mg.
< 1 ng/ml
Physical form description
Lyophilized with no additives
Reconstitution in 10 mM acetic acid to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4°C for 1 week or –20°C for future use.
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.

For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
