Human PDGF Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human PDGF in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) PDGF‑AA, 60% cross-reactivity with rhPDGF-AB, and nearly 100% cross-reactivity with rhPDGF-BB is observed.
Polyclonal Rabbit IgG
Protein A or G purified
Human platelet-derived PDGF
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Human PDGF (Catalog # 120-HD)
under non-reducing conditions only
Measured by its ability to neutralize PDGF-induced proliferation in the NR6R‑3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line [Rizzino, A. et al. (1988) Cancer Res. 48:4266]. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 5-10 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL Human PDGF.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Cell Proliferation Induced by PDGF and Neutralization by Human PDGF Antibody. Human PDGF (Catalog # 120-HD) stimulates proliferation in the NR6R-3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Human PDGF (10 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rabbit Anti-Human PDGF Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AB-20-NA). The ND50 is typically 5-10 µg/mL.

Background: PDGF

PDGF was originally discovered as a major mitogenic factor in serum but not in plasma. PDGF is stored in platelet alpha granules and released upon platelet activation. Besides megakaryocytes, other cell types, including endothelial cells, monocyte/macrophages, vascular smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts, cytotrophoblasts and a variety of transformed or neoplastic cells, have been shown to produce PDGF. PDGFs are disulfide-linked dimers. The subunits of the PDGF dimers are homologous polypeptides designated PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains. Natural PDGFs can exist either as homodimers (PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB) or heterodimers (PDGF-AB). Although all three isoforms of PDGF exist in human platelets, R&D Systems hPDGF consists predominantly of hPDGF-AB heterodimers.

Two distinct PDGF receptors, the alpha -receptor and the beta -receptor, have been identified. The two receptors are structurally related, with an extracellular portion containing five immunoglobulin-like domains, a single transmembrane region, and an intracellular portion with a protein-tyrosine kinase domain. The alpha -receptor binds both the A and B chains with high affinity whereas the beta -receptor binds only the B-chain with high affinity. Receptor dimerization is induced upon ligand binding.

In addition to being a potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin, PDGF has also been shown to be a potent chemoattractant for mesenchymal cells, mononuclear cells and neutrophils and has been reported to be important in the modification of cellular matrix constituents.
