Product Summary
The Quantikine Human/Mouse PDGF-AA Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure PDGF-AA in human and mouse cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and human saliva. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human PDGF-AA and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural PDGF-AA showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human and natural mouse PDGF-AA.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

The recovery of PDGF-AA spiked to three different levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %

Platelet-poor Heparin Plasma (n=4) 93 83-108
Platelet-poor Heparin Plasma (n=4) 88 70-100
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of PDGF-AA were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay. Samples were tested with two reage

Background: PDGF-AA
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) family of disulfide-linked dimeric proteins consists of four homodimeric proteins, PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB, PDGF-CC and PDGF-DD, and one heterodimeric protein, PDGF-AB. Members of this protein family act mainly on connective tissue. The dimeric isoforms of PDGF are expressed by different cell types and at different times during embryonic development. All PDGF isoforms are synthesized as inactive precursors and are processed to active forms that contain a PDGF/VEGF cysteine knot domain. Only PDGF-C and PDGF-D, also named spinal cord-derived growth factors SCDGF and SCDGF-B, also contain an N-terminal CUB domain. Mature PDGF dimers bind and induce the homo- or hetero-dimerization of two receptor tyrosine kinases (PDGF R alpha and R beta).
