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
E. coli-derived recombinant mouse PDGF-CC Val235-Gly345 Accession # Q8CI19
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Recombinant Mouse PDGF-C
Perfusion fixed frozen 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.
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 Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1447). The ND50 is typically 4‑16 µg/mL.

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).
