Preparation and Storage
Background: PDGF R beta
PDGF is a major serum mitogen that can exist as a homo or hetero-dimeric protein consisting of disulfide-linked PDGF-A and PDGF‑B chains. The PDGF-AA, PDGF‑BB and PDGF-AB isoforms have been shown to bind to two distinct cell surface PDGF receptors with different affinities. Where as PDGF R alpha binds all three PDGF isoforms with high affinity, PDGF R beta binds PDGF-BB only with high-affinity. Both PDGF R alpha and PDGF R beta are members of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) that also includes the receptors for M-CSF, SCF and Flt3 ligand. All class III RTKs are characterized by the presence of five immuno‑globulinlike domains in their extracellular region and a split kinase domain in their intracellular region. PDGF binding induces receptor homo-and hetero‑dimerization and signal transduction. The expression of the alpha and beta receptors is independently regulated in various cell types. Recombinant soluble PDGF R beta binds PDGF with high affinity and is potent PDGF antagonist (4).
