Mouse PDGF-C Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse PDGF‑C in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) PDGF-CC is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rhPDGF-AA, rhPDGF-BB, rhPDGF-D, and recombinant rat PDGF-AB is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
E. coli-derived recombinant mouse PDGF-CC
Accession # Q8CI19
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Mouse PDGF-C
5-15 µg/mL
Perfusion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of mouse kidney
Measured by its ability to neutralize PDGF‑CC-induced proliferation in the NR6R‑3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line. Raines, E. W. et al. (1985) Methods Enzymol. 109:749. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 4-16 µg/mL in the presence of 0.8 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse PDGF‑CC.

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.

PDGF‑C in Mouse Kidney. PDGF‑C was detected in perfusion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of mouse kidney using Goat Anti-Mouse PDGF‑C Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1447) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (VC004). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and plasma membrane in convoluted tubules. Staining was performed using our protocol for IHC Staining with VisUCyte HRP Polymer Detection Reagents.

Neutralization Cell Proliferation Induced by PDGF‑CC and Neutralization by Mouse PDGF‑C Antibody. View Larger

Cell Proliferation Induced by PDGF‑CC and Neutralization by Mouse PDGF‑C Antibody. Recombinant Mouse PDGF‑CC stimulates proliferation in the NR6R‑3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by 0.8 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse PDGF‑CC is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse PDGF-C Antigen Affinity-purified Poly-clonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1447). The ND50 is typically 4‑16 µg/mL.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence Detection of Mouse PDGF-C by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence View Larger

Detection of Mouse PDGF-C by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence FREM1 regulates activation of AKT and MAPK upon PDGFC stimulation. (A) Representative western blotting of phosphorylation of AKT and MAPK ERK1/2 in MEFs from WT and bat mouse embryos stimulated with PDGFCC for the indicated time periods. (B) Relative quantification of AKT phosphorylation levels. WT cells 10 minutes after stimulation were assigned a value of 1 and all other samples are standardised against this value. Graph represents average of up to nine WT and 16 bat samples, performed across four independent experiments from at least three different cell lines for each genotype. Black bars: WT; white bars, bat mutant. (C) FREM1 mutation in bat mutants reduces phosphorylation of PDGFR alpha in response to the addition of exogenous PDGFCC. IP, immunoprecipitation antibody; WB, western blotting antibody. (D) E13.5 WT embryo head skin sections stained for PDGFC (green), PDGFR alpha (red) and nuclear dye DAPI (blue). Error bars represent standard error of the mean (s.e.m.); *P<0.05, **P<0.01, ***P<0.005. Image collected and cropped by CiteAb from the following open publication (, licensed under a CC-BY license.
