Mouse Anti-Human PDGFR-alpha
Slide this table
|Reconstitute the antibody with 500 µl sterile PBS and the final concentration is 200 µg/ml.
|Stability and Storage
|Lyophilized samples are stable for 2 years from date of receipt when stored at -70°C. Reconstituted antibody can be aliquoted and stored frozen at < -20 °C for at least for six months without detectable loss of activity.
|This antibody was produced from a hybridoma (mouse myeloma fused with spleen cells from a mouse immunized with N-terminal recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha fragment. The IgG1 fraction of culture supernatant was purified by Protein G affinity chromatography.

|PDGF is a major serum mitogen that can exist as a homo- or heterodimeric protein consisting of disulfidelinked PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains. The PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB isoforms have been shown to bind to two distinct cell surface PDGF receptors with different affinities. Whereas PDGF Rα binds all three PDGF isoforms with high affinity, PDGF Rβ binds PDG-FBB and AB, but not PDGFAA. Both PDGF Rα and PDGF Rβ are members of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) that also includes the receptors for MCSF, SCF and Flt3 ligand. All class III RTKs are characterized by the presence of five immunoglobulin-like domains in their extracellular region and a split kinase domain in their intracellular region. PDGF binding induces receptor homo- and heterodimerization and signal transduction. The expression of the α and β receptors is independently regulated in various cell types. Only PDGF Rα is expressed in oligodendrocyte progenitor cells, mesothelial cell and liver endothelial cells. Soluble PDGFRα has been detected in cell conditioned medium and human plasma. Recombinant soluble PDGF Rα binds PDGF with high affinity and is a potent PDGF antagonist.
