|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD140a antibody, clone 35248 recognizes the human platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha, a 1089 amino acid, ~180 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein.PDGF is a major serum mitogen that can exist as a homo- or heterodimeric protein consisting of disulphide-linked PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains (Hartet al.1990). 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 receptor alpha binds all three isoforms with high affinity, PDGF R beta binds PDGF-BB and AB but not PDGF-AA (Hartet al.1988). Both PDGF receptor alpha and beta are members of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (Westermark 1995).Mouse anti-Human CD140a antibody, clone 35248 has been reported for use in functional studies. The ND50 was determined as 0.2-0.6 µg/ml for blocking 10 ng/ml of PDGF-AA biological activity on a quiescent confluent cell culture of human WS1 cells.|
