Recombinant Human PDGFAA

Cat. No. : PDGFA-56H
Product Overview : Recombinant Human PDGF-AA produced inYeastis a homodimeric, glycosilated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 110 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 34 kDa. PDGF-AA is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Description : PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB, are potent mitogens for a variety of cell types including smooth muscle cells, connective tissue cells, bone and cartilage cells, and some blood cells. The PDGF is stored in platelet alpha-granules and released upon platelet activation. The PDGF is involved in a number of biological processes, including hyperplasia, chemotaxis, embryonic neuron development, and respiratory tubule epithelial cell development. Two distinct signaling receptors used by PDGF have been identified and named PDGFR-alpha and PDGFR-beta. PDGFR-alpha is high-affinity receptor for each of the three PDGF forms. On the other hand, PDGFR-beta interacts with only PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB.
Source : Yeast.
Physical Appearance : Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Purity : Greater than 98.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Formulation : The protein was lyophilized with 20mM sodium phosphate buffer.
Solubility : It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized PDGF-AA in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Biological Activity : The ED50was found to be 1ng/ml calculated by the ability to stimulate the proliferation of mouse 3T3 fibroblasts. (PNAS 94, 10205, 1997. Biochemistry, 1996, 35, 12077).
Protein Content : Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods: 1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.48 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics). 2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of PDGF-BB as a Reference Standard.
Storage : Lyophilized PDGF-AA although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PDGF-AA should be stored at 4°Cbetween 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
