Recombinant PDGF Porcine

For research use only

Platelet-derived Growth Factor, known as PDGF, is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor family.

It’s a potent mitogen for a wide range of cell types including fibroblasts, smooth muscle and connective tissue, and it plays a key role in embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, and angiogenesis. Porcine PDGF consists primarily of PDGF homodimers and it has approximately 70-80% homology with the B-chain of human PDGF. Human and porcine PDGF bind to the same receptors and produce the same spectrum of biological effects.

  • Source

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

  • Sequence

    Porcine PDGF-BB recombinant protein is a dimeric peptide of 108 amino acid residues.


  • Formulation

    Phosphate 20mM; NaCl 500mM; Tween20 0.05%; pH 7.4

  • Purity
