|Product Overview:||Recombinant mouse PDGF R alpha (Leu25 - Glu524) protein fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus was expressed in mouse myeloma cell line.|
|Description:||This gene encodes a member of the receptor tyrosine kinase family of proteins. Binding of platelet-derived growth factor protein ligands to this receptor triggers receptor dimerization and autophosphorylation, resulting in the activation of several downstream signaling pathways. Signaling through the encoded receptor plays a role in gastrulation and the development of nearly all organ systems. Mice lacking a functional copy of this gene reportedly exhibit defects in lung, skeleton, testis and the central nervous system, and die soon after birth. Alternative splicing and intronic polyadenylation of gene transcripts have been implicated in muscle regeneration and fibrosis in adult mice.|
|Predicted N Terminal:||Leu25|
|Bio-activity:||Measured by its ability to inhibit the biological activity of PDGF-AB or PDGF-AA using NR6R‑3T3 mouse fibroblast cells. Raines, E.W. et al. (1985) Methods Enzymol. 109:749. The ED50 for this effect is 0.01-0.04 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL recombinant human PDGF-AA.|
