Recombinant PDGF Human

For research use only

Platelet-derived growth factor, known as PDGF, refers to a family of dimeric isoforms that have an effect on connective tissue cells, as well as on other types of cells.

It affects the differentiation of specific cell types and promotes cell survival. Through these effects, PDGF has important functions in certain organs during embryonic development, as well as in the adult stage in the stimulation of wound healing and in the maintenance of connective tissue homeostasis.

  • Source

    Our recombinant human PDGF growth factor is produced in non-GMO insects, specifically in Trichoplusia ni (cabbage moth) with the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS).

  • Sequence

    Human PDGF-BB recombinant protein is a dimeric peptide of 109 amino acid residues.
