PDGFA Antibody (N-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - PDGFA Antibody (N-term) AP1720a
    The anti-PDGFA (N-term) (Cat. #AP1720a) is used in Western blot to detect PDGFA in HL60 cell lysate.
  • IHC-P - PDGFA Antibody (N-term) AP1720a
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human brain tissue reacted with PDGFA antibody (N-term), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.

Protein Information
Synonyms PDGF1
Function Growth factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. Potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin. Required for normal lung alveolar septum formation during embryogenesis, normal development of the gastrointestinal tract, normal development of Leydig cells and spermatogenesis. Required for normal oligodendrocyte development and normal myelination in the spinal cord and cerebellum. Plays an important role in wound healing. Signaling is modulated by the formation of heterodimers with PDGFB (By similarity).
Cellular Location Secreted. Note=Released by platelets upon wounding

PDGFA is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor family. The four members of this family are mitogenic factors for cells of mesenchymal origin and are characterized by a motif of eight cysteines. This gene product can exist either as a homodimer or as a heterodimer with the platelet-derived growth factor beta polypeptide, where the dimers are connected by disulfide bonds. Studies using knockout mice have shown cellular defects in oligodendrocytes, alveolar smooth muscle cells, and Leydig cells in the testis; knockout mice die either as embryos or shortly after birth.
