Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Subunit B (PDGFB) belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family. Platelet-derived growth factor is a potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin. PDGFB 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. As growth factor，it plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. It is required for normal proliferation and recruitment of pericytes and vascular smooth muscle cells in the central nervous system, skin, lung, heart and placenta. PDGFB also plays an important role in wound healing.
Recombinant Mouse PDGF-BB Protein (His Tag)(Active)
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using Balb/c3T3 mouse fibroblast cells. The ED50 for this effect is 1.55 ng/ml.
Recombinant Mouse PDGF-BB is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Ser82-Thr190 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
This product is provided as lyophilized powder which is shipped with ice packs.
> 95 % as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
< 1.0 EU per μg as determined by the LAL method.
|Stability and Storage||
Generally, lyophilized proteins are stable for up to 12 months when stored at -20 to -80℃. Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-8℃ for 2-7 days. Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20℃ for 3 months.
